DATA FAIR 4

Overall learning goal

By the end of the session, participants will have:

Instructional design

Introduction

The organiser of the Lumix fairs, facilitated by the Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Project, welcomes all the participants to the fourth and final session.  The EBP facilitator introduces her co-facilitators from English Montreal School Board (EMBS).

The purpose of the day is shared.  It is to continue to build capacity in data use and the Lumix database, within the english community, through the sharing of the Charlemagne Easy Access Tool, created by a team from EMSB. The tool converts raw Charlemagne MEESR exam xml files into data kits.

The plan for the day is shared and participants are asked to write on a post-it what they expect to get out of the session.

Development
Charlemagne presentation & tutorial

The history of and rationale for the tool was presented by the EBP and EMSB. Participants were guided through the process of accessing their files using the tool and creating the various reports. Each team was paired up with someone from IT and someone from pedagogical services for the tutorial.

All teams were successful in producing reports based on their results.

Q&A

The presentation and tutorial was followed by a Q&A session for all the participants.  They were also invited to get in touch with EMSB to offer feedback on how the tool could be improved.

Conclusions

The EBP coordinator expressed her appreciation to the EMSB for their generosity in sharing the tool with the English Boards, acknowledging the many hours of work and outstanding collaboration necessary for its creation.  She also thanked the two EMSB technicians on-hand to provide technical support for the VCN links.
