      I was surprised by the fact that the level of evidence for Recommendation #4: Increase student motivation and engagement and motivation in literacy learning was moderate instead of strong. However, this classification only reflects the data from...

        As stated in an earlier post, adolescent literacy is defined in the text, Improving Adolescent Literacy: Effective Classroom and Intervention Practices, as “a complex concept because it entails more than the scores that students achieve on...

              One sensor I wanted to try was the robot’s sense of it being picked up. I find this to be a very interesting concept because it means that the machinery can calculate the pressure put upon the wheels and determine that if there is no tension...

                  Skyler, I am very impressed with the work you have done on this project. You have told a very compelling story and have told it very well (or allowed the data to tell it very well, depending upon your perspective). I was intrigued by the...

                    Suzie, Your analysis really surprised me. I was stunned to discover that New Rochelle had a higher student to teacher ratio than did Mt. Vernon. It would be great to further investigate these gaps and similiarities. I have come to agree with...

                      Suzie, You did a nice job with the visualizations. More importantly, your work raises serious questions about equity across school districts in Westchester (which I am sure you know a great deal about).

                          I was actually quite surprised at how easy the robot was to put together. The directions were very clear and simple to follow. I was nervous, though, because I didn’t want to break anything. While I was completing the tutorials in the mBlock...

                            Alicia, Your charts and data were compelling to review, thank you! It is interesting to me how much of this data that we are analyzing just serves to create more questions and lines of inquiry. It will be interesting to see if the trends you are...

                                    Your charts and data were compelling to review, thank you! It is interesting to me how much of this data that we are analyzing just serves to create more questions and lines of inquiry. It will be interesting to see if the trends you are discovering from last year will continue to prove true as the students progress through the grades. Thank you for sharing!

                                      I couldn't agree more with your insights about these data generating more questions, which I what I firmly believe should be happening.

                                          Suzie,

                                          Your analysis really surprised me. I was stunned to discover that New Rochelle had a higher student to teacher ratio than did Mt. Vernon. It would be great to further investigate these gaps and similiarities.

                                          I have come to agree with you about the tools. The charting tools in Google Sheets and Excel seem more than sufficient to create these visualizations. The real skill, I have come to believe, is deciding which data to investigate.
