MELROSE, MA (March 17, 2014) ― The public is invited attend “Data in the Classroom,” a free public forum to be held at the Roosevelt School on Wednesday, March 26 at 7:00 pm. The forum is part of a series of Melrose Education Forums organized by Melrose Public Schools, City of Melrose, and the Melrose Education Foundation.

In this informative and interactive forum, Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning Margaret Adams will explain what types of data are collected, how that information is used by elementary school teachers and administrators, and why meaningful assessment data is critical to improving teaching strategies to meet students’ needs.
Following the presentation, parents will play the role of educators: they will assess student work for themselves and learn how to interpret that data to inform classroom instruction.
