Evidence & DataValley View School District recently partnered with BrightBytes, a company that provides educational leaders with evidence-based, research-driven recommendations for allocating technology resources for maximum impact. Our district will gather benchmark data through online surveys over the course of several years from our students and staff. BrightBytes will then provide our district with strategies for targeting improvements and planning for the 1:1+Plus Initiative, as well as overall goals in increasing the use of technology in our classrooms and schools.
About BrightBytes ClarityBrightBytes Clarity is a highly-effective, online platform designed to provide schools with evidence-based data around the CASE framework, a holistic reporting mechanism that examines classroom technology use, access to technology in and out of school, attitudes toward technology usage, and technology skills of students, educators, and parents. It utilizes short, research-driven survey questions given to administrators, teachers, students, and parents/guardians and presents this information in an easy to read format. Results can be dis-aggregated in a number of different ways so that school & district administrators can pinpoint where they need to target their next steps for intervention and development.Introduction to Clarity (video)Updates to Sample Questions (effective August 2018)
