This week we have Steve Phelps (@KitledMath_T) a Math teacher at West High School in Salt Lake City, Utah leading the discussion on Innovative Data Practices and Reflections! This should be an excellent and informative topic for educators to start thinking about for the end of this year and ponder over the summer. Please come prepared to share your thoughts on Assessment and Data with the rest of the #UTedChat crew.
