Data Driven Instruction, Analytics, Reporting Tools

Teachers need to have as much information as possible about their students, everything from grades from other courses, performance scores on standardized tests, and end of course testing to parent information and the demographics because all of these factors can affect the performance of the student in your class. 

My current school uses power teacher by pearson to maintain all of the information about the students including standardized scores and demographics. It also has teacher comments from previous years which can be obtained at an administrator level. 

As a teacher, I like to know my students so I can have an idea of where they come from however I don’t use this information to judge the student before they come to my class.
