"Fundamental to teachers becoming responsive to student learning needs is the availability of detailed information about what students know and can do. "

This latest Verso podcast shares some of the recent updates to the Verso data dashboards. These new dashboards provide context specific data to teachers (and students) allowing them to reflect on practice in ways that inform teacher inquiry & knowledge building cycles. The visibility on learning and student perspectives combined with data about process and personal effectiveness is a powerful combination, supporting practitioners in making data driven decisions and initiating focused learning conversations with students and peers.
