Consider how you use the data collected from students in a survey or when talking to them. You could collate their responses in a graph, infographic or summary and share the results with students and staff.
You can also use data collected from reading assessments such as AsTTle, STAR and PATs to ensure there are plenty of books that suit your students' reading levels. Giving the library team a summary of the data analysis, and discussing the findings and implications with teachers will help your school to build a great library collection.
Your library management system or Integrated Library System (ILS) will also have data of what each student has borrowed. Bearing in mind that books borrowed does not necessarily mean books read, you will still be able to view reading trends over time for your students. Find out how to create lists of school's top 10 fiction, or your class' 15 favourites. Display this in the library and around the school to gain student interest.
