Below are the skills needed to complete the Data Digger challenge. Please review the skills and complete those you have not yet done this school year. There are also a few specific requirements for your badge submission outlined at the end of the document.
1. Create an assessment aligned with the standards for your subject area. (you may use a Common benchmark or midterm if you’d like to.)
2. Analyze the results of the assessment and identify the standards that students struggled with.
3. Create a group of students who struggled with one or more standards.
4. Create a plan for intervening with those students. What will you do to reteach/help the students understand? Describe your plan – what will/did you do to reteach/intervene?
5. After the intervention – how will you re-assess to know whether or not the intervention worked? How many students show mastery now?
Was the intervention successful?
How do you know? (Data based evidence)

Please make sure to include the following when submitting for the Data Digger Badge. Feel free to share any other feedback as well!
1. Describe your assessment, include subject area and standards. You may upload a copy, put in a link to an Edulastic assessment, or describe the assessment in detail: Ex. students took the grade 8 benchmark assessment in Pearson or students took the Edulastic “red” standards assessment for Grade 4 Reading, etc.
2. Analyze the results of the assessment and identify the standards that students struggled with. Which standards did students struggle with? (List the entire standards) – not just the “code” . example . 8th grade Math:8.EE.2 Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x² = p and x³ = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.
3. Create a group of students who struggled with one or more standards. You can just use first names when you submit this.
4. Create a plan for intervening with those students. What will you do to reteach/help the students understand? Describe your plan – what did you do to reteach/intervene?
5. After the intervention – how did you re-assess to know whether or not the intervention worked? Did the intervention work? How many of the intervention group students show mastery now? What will you do moving forward with those who have not yet mastered this standard?
