Data for Self-Evaluation by Claire Easton got me thinking about how I collect data with my students electronically. Although her article is about surveys and collecting evidence it got me thinking about the assessment data I collate.
I love to collect data in a folder on Google drive for the students in my class. I find it really useful for reports at the end of the year and for sharing with others.I take photos of their projects and it also means I never have to take their books home with me to refer to.
Other teachers in my teaching team put all their data on one page I haven't quite made it to that yet.
I think I like to do it my way because I have lots of detail and a comments column. Also by doing it the same way each year I can compare the data across year groups using the same reporting process.
