    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Boston Public Schools.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume and cover letter and was invited for a phone interview within a couple of days. The phone interview was with two people the director of Data inquiry and another facilitator. They asked pretty standard interview questions (e.g. successes, failures, descriptions of myself, etc.). I was sent an performance task within a few days which I was to complete within two days. The task consisted of manipulating an excel workbook of student standardized test scores in order to be better digested by teachers; creating a visualization of the the workbook (graph); and noting themes from the data. I was invited to an in person interview for which I had to prepare to facilitate a professional development session with teachers based on the data in the performance task. The interview was with several superintendents and the data inquiry team. I was also given a case study and asked to reflect on it and then role played based on the case. I was then had a final interview with a superintendent that led the Office of Data and Accountability. This was very basic and informal.
