  Include learning about data use in your summer PD plans

The South Dakota Department of Education is offering a data use course for educators this summer. The Fundamentals of Using Data for Educators course provides educators with the skills they need to analyze and use data to answer important questions to drive positive change in their classroom, school, or district.

The course begins May 30 and requires a one-day face-to-face workshop as well as some online work.

Participants choose from one of three locations. On-site days will be from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. local time:

Participants who wish to earn a graduate credit need to complete a final project. They will be given a week past the workshop date to finish the final project. It is not necessary to purchase a textbook or other material for this class. However, participants should bring a laptop that is able to browse the internet. Spreadsheet software such as Excel is also helpful for this class.

Participation is free, but graduate credits are available for purchase through the University of South Dakota at a discounted rate. One credit is available for the course. Those signed up for credit will also need to register with USD. They will receive an A-F grade.
