Grand Canyon University Using Data to Create Programs Project
School counselors are required to make data-driven decisions in order to effectively advocate for programs to help students. The first step is to identify testing tools that will provide the data to guide the creation of these programs.
Using the “Mock Standardized Testing Data,” interpret the data to identify gaps in academic outcomes and choose a target group from the data.
Write a 500-750-word action plan for the chosen target group that:
Identifies two valid and reliable standardized testing tools.
Explains how each test would be administered and the results interpreted.
- Analyzes how the data would be used to advocate for providing programs to assist struggling students.
