#SOL17: Retrospect


Screenshot 2017-12-26 at 5.30.26 AMWhat a year!

There are so many ways to vies the data in WordPress that my head can spin  . . . or I can just look like a bobblehead.  After all, what’s in a number?

Looking back is something of a habit before the New Year begins.  Here were my reflective posts from 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013.  It was fun to see where the emphasis has changed over time.

My Top 5 Most Viewed Blog Posts of all time are:

5. How do we know students are making progress in writing? (2014)

4.  #DigiLit Sunday:  Critical Thinking (2017)

3.  Generative Writing as a Formative Assessment (2015)

 2.  Lexile Level is NOT Text Complexity (2013)

1. #TCRWP and a Teacher’s Toolkit for Writinf (2014)

Data analysis is interesting.  At first glance it appears that my OLD writing is more popular than my newer writing. Or does the popularity mean that these posts are STILL topics/issues that present day literacy teachers are struggling with?

My data is skewed and incomplete.  Every other year I have reported the top 10 posts.  Narrowing the parameters of my list causes the comparison to fluctuate from previous years.  And even more disconcerting is changing the years . . . what is the difference between “all time” lists and just the “top ten” from this year?  What is the difference between “from” and “for”?

My Top 5 Posts from 2017 are:

5. #DigiLitSunday: “Possible Sentences”

4. #SOLSC17: #OLW Brave

3. Reading Goals: What Do You Measure?

2. #DigiLitSunday: Summer Slide

1. #DigiLitSunday: Critical Thinking

Subtle differences require a discerning reader.

Today “I cherish the oddities”. (Call for slices by Melanie here.)

 

What kind of reader will you be in the future?

What data do you use for valid comparisons?

What data do you wonder about? 

Is all data equal?
