About our Data and Assessment Services

Today's educators are expected to gather and use data to measure improvement and guide priorities. From attendance to performance and everything in between, qualitative and quantitative measures help educators focus their efforts on areas with the highest potential leverage.

If it's important, it's worth measuring so educators need to consider what information they need and how best to collect it. From formative assessments like exit tickets, to summative assessments like District Determined Measures, BHELS works with educators to develop the strategies and skills to formulate meaningful assessments.

Whether working collaboratively in data teams or looking at individual measures, Understanding the context, determining relevance and gleaning actionable insights from data is essential to drive any continuous improvement process. BHELS helps schools and districts become better learning organizations by developing the capacity and skills of individuals to work with data along with processes to facilitate the work of data teams.

In learning organizations, data is the fuel that can motivate action and lead to improved outcomes. BHELS works to create the conditions where educators are encouraged to tinker with their practice in response to the data that is collected.
