T3PD Model


t3pd model

In this Thing, you learned about the legalities of data and the types of data collected in education. Here you will learn about the technology tools and resources available to improve instruction, engage learners, and expand data driven dialogue. 

In the T3PD Data Model (Technology+Perception+Performance+Progress Monitoring+Demographic) you will see how technology can improve the data collection process.

Perception Meets Technology 





 Perception meets Technology:

Perception data can be used to inform lesson objectives, and/or identify pre-existing thoughts, opinions, and ideas. Educators often use polls and surveys to explore starting points for learners with a lesson.

Progress Monitoring Meets Technology:

 Progress Monitoring meets Technology:

Educators monitor student performance towards goals and objectives, or create groupings for teaching and re-teaching through a variety of formative assessments. Students become more actively engaged with interactive learning, personalized experiences, and the opportunity to chart growth.

 Classroom Applications:

  • Use Quizalize or Quizizz to pre-assess students on their knowledge of causes of the Civil War.
  • During a lesson, use Plickers to monitor student learning about today’s lesson on cell division.
  • Allow students to self assess progress through a lesson on fractions using Kahoot.
  • Assign online flashcards in Quizlet or Cram as test review.
  • Utilize Interactives to engage and encourage learners to track their own progress.

Performance meets Technology:




Performance Data:

Achievement data comes in many shapes and forms, with summative data being graded and purposeful.  When gathering Performance data, educators seek to replicate online high-stakes testing experiences through a variety of technology enhanced item types. Students are asked to create or review digital artifacts, complete Capstone assignments, or experience online tests aligned to standards.

 Classroom Applications:

  • Create a self-grading test using Flubaroo with Google Forms.
  • Create a Rubric using Rubistar to establish performance criteria for a project.
  • Create an online assessment with tech enhanced items aligned to standards using EdulasticSocrative  or GoFormative
  • Create a digital artifact or enhanced video that embeds quiz questions around lesson content with BlendSpacePhotoPeach - or have students create an artifact to demonstrate learning.
  • Locate a video, then begin building and enhancing with pauses, embedded questions in a variety of item types, or links to external content with PlaypositTeachemZaption, or EdPuzzle.

Demographic meets Technology:




Demographic meets Technology:

Depending on the data set, often times demographic data exists at an educators fingertips. With FERPA guidelines as our guide, educators should only access student personal information for those rostered to them.

 Classroom Applications:

  • Gather parent contact information to solicit parent volunteers.
  • Review student accommodations, subgroups, or special needs populations.
  • Locate birthdays for a bulletin board.
  • Download or create reports of student results from state testing.
  • Check out state trends in graduation/dropout, enrollment, schools of choice, workforce, or postsecondary.

Critically think about how you can integate technology based resources to increase engagement and prepare students for online learning and assessment. 


Examples from previous Things:

  • In the Basics Thing, you reviewed technology checklists for students which should be considered throughout the teaching and learning process.
  • In Visual Learning, you explored the use of Word Clouds (like AnswerGarden and Poll Everywhere) to engage students and determine the most popular response.
  • You learned about classroom tools like Quizlet for engaging learners with flashcard assessments to monitor progress in the Interactives Thing.
  • Embedding quizzes within content was explored in the Digital Images Thing, where you learned about the use of PhotoPeach and the built-in quiz feature.
  • In Cloud Initiation Thing, you learned about Diigolet for annotating and highlighting documents.
