MVUSD Leadership Summit 2019 <> Gathering Data from Every Direction!

Presented by Jody Oliver, @jodylo

Session

Data for your program is more than just state tests. At any moment there could be a grant or funding opportunity that would allow your program to expand. Are you ready to show data to prove it's awesome? Attend this session to understand current data collection instruments used in MVUSD and how you can use the Google Forms app to collect more specific data for your classroom, program, department, presentation, workshop, community event, or activity!

Data guides us toward success. This is an interactive presentation using Nearpod and Google Slides.

  1. GOOGLE FORMS RESOURCES AND TIPS FOR GREAT SURVEYS
    1. https://blogs.constantcontact.com/how-to-write-survey/ 8 tips for creating a survey
    2. https://www.surveymonkey.com/mp/writing-survey-questions/ Great tips! Except I disagree with #3 - responses should be four. According to my stats teacher, using four forces everyone to select above or below - if you use five, research shows many people just click the middle for average.
    3. https://zapier.com/learn/forms-surveys/writing-effective-survey/ Really great tips and examples provided here.
    4. https://support.google.com Google Forms Training and Help, quizzes too!
