Data Dashboards for School Directors: Using Data for Accountability and Student Achievement
Washington State School Directors' Association (NJ1)
This guide is designed to inform school directors about the value of a data dashboard and to provide information on how districts can create a data dashboard for school directors. A data dashboard is a tool for viewing and analyzing student achievement and performance data. Key data for monitoring student achievement and directing policy level decisions is presented in a series of charts and graphs or "gauges" much like a car's dashboard displays. This guide provides questions for each chart and graph that will help school directors understand the data and arrive at strategies for monitoring progress and improving district performance. Appended are: (1) WASL: A Brief Introduction (Washington Assessment of Student Learning); (2) Glossary; and (3) Resources. A review/feedback form is also included.
