21 Day Daily Data Challenge (50 minutes)
The word "data" elicits a range of emotions from School Counselors from scowls to smiles. Knowing where to find data, what data to use and how to use it is only part of the problem. Finding the motivation to get started on what seems an overwhelming and monumental task keeps many School Counselors from using data to inform and develop their program. The 21 Day Daily Data Challenge gently introduces School Counselors to the idea of locating, gathering, organizing, disaggregating, analyzing, and utilizing their data to create just one SMART goal with a measurable outcome for sharing with stakeholders. Because sometimes, it’s just so darn hard to get started!
