School Improvement Through Data-Driven Decision Making

"Data helps you make changes. And when you see data, it really puts [student achievement] right in your face."Virginia Lawton, 6th-grade teacher in Wisconsin

In the new climate of accountability and data-driven decision making, data-use tools and resources need to be readily available for educators and those that support them. This Web site is designed to give educators—and others involved in using data in a classroom, school, or district—a variety of places to find resources, tools, and action steps to foster school improvement.
