Data-driven instruction and goal setting are by no means new to the field of education. This study examined how data-driven instruction combined with student goal setting affected test scores and student engagement as well as how it affected my teaching practices. Analysis of surveys, test scores, journals, interviews and observation protocols indicate that while there was no significant improvement in student engagement in science as observed by teachers and self-reported by students, test scores did increase and students enjoyed the goal setting process and felt that it helped their learning.
