ACT Workshop:
Continuous Improvement with ACT Data

Join Sherry Reed, ACT Senior Account Executive, for an opportunity to learn more about the power of ACT data and how it can be used in the continuous improvement process to increase the college and career readiness of your students!

This FREE workshop will help you move your school forward in continuous improvement!

This session will share strategies for using ACT data from ACT academic assessments to drive the continuous improvement process in classrooms, schools, and school systems. Once made practical, the data is valued. We will include time for participants to work in their own data and use ACT tools to support the improvement planning process. We will also discuss use of the data to evaluate strengths and weaknesses in local curriculum as well as application to school improvement goals. There is dedicated time in this session for you to roll up your sleeves and work on your school’s data! Join this session and watch your results improve!

Participants will leave the session with:
  • An understanding of the value of ACT data
  • Identification of useful data available through the administration of ACT academic assessments
  • Understanding how ACT data and ACT tools support the continuous improvement process
  • How to access and how to use the data for multiple purposes, including benchmarking progress in grades 8-12.
This FREE workshop is ideal for superintendents, assistant superintendents, assessment directors, curriculum directors, college and career readiness directors, coordinators, building principals, department heads, and lead teachers.

Bring a team! Great session for working on issues related to state accreditation requirements!

Light refreshments will be provided prior to the presentation.
