Using Technology-Rich Data Support Tools To Enhance School Improvement Initiatives in Chicago Public Schools: Are the Children Learning? How Do We Know?
Mitchell, Derek; Conrad, Bill
The Quality School Portfolio (QSP) Initiative was a partnership among the Chicago Public Schools, Illinois, the Joyce Foundation, and the National Center for the Evaluation of Research, Standards, and Student Testing. The project infused data-informed, question-driven, and technology-rich processes into school improvement planning, teacher action research projects, feeder/received school relationships, and communication at eight Chicago public schools. This paper reports the successes, challenges, and recommendations of this initiative in building the culture and technical and organizational capacities of Chicago schools to carry out data-informed improvement. The discussion of the claim statements summarized in this report demonstrates that schools in the QSP Training Initiative use QSP and data-informed processes to help inform the school improvement initiatives that form the basis for the project. QSP schools were found to be poised to use the new QSP-Web product to advance data-informed school improvement. (Contains 5 tables and 13 references.) (Author/SLD)
