Using Pivot Tables to View Student Performance Data
Are you looking for ways to view student performance trends, make comparisons, and discover patterns at a glance? Ever wonder how pivot tables can help make student data more useful? Pivot tables are interactive tables that automatically extract, organize, and summarize your spreadsheet data. With dozens of students and hundreds of assessment results to manage, pivot tables will help you reveal the meaning behind the data. Whether you are a classroom teacher seeking to better understand your students, or an administrator looking for creative solutions to view school-wide results, come to this workshop and learn how to quickly create pivot tables and interactively explore the significance of your student performance data.
Host and Presenter: Adam DiGiacomo, Director of Data and Technology
