Coaches can also partner with educators to empower students to use learning data to set their own goals and monitor their progress. When I was a classroom teacher I would start off a lesson by discussing the learning target in student friendly language. Learning targets not only help drive effective teaching, but they inform students of the goal and allow them to be an essential part of the process. By asking students to reflect on their learning we are helping them develop their metacognitive and decision-making skills so that they can monitor their own progress and ask for help when they need it (Moss & Brookhard, 2012). Coaches can help teachers find the right type of technology to aid their students in analyzing data, setting goals, and reflecting on their progress. In my blog post, Empowering Learners Through Self-Reflection, I suggest various tools for students to use when reflecting and communicating their self-assessment scores.
