Empowering Parents: States Have a Role in Ensuring Parents Have the Data They Need to Make Informed Choices. Data for Action 2012
Data Quality Campaign
Accessible, tailored, and easy-to-understand data can help parents influence their children's learning, take advantage of school resources, and inform their educational decision making: (1) Information about their children--such as attendance, performance, progress, and expected outcomes; and (2) Information about their children's current school and their educational options. States have a role in ensuring parents have access to tailored, easy-to-understand data about their children's progress, school performance, and educational options. States are best positioned to support parents with the following: (1) High-quality data links between early childhood, K-12, and postsecondary education; (2) Context around what student performance is compared to nearby schools and districts; (3) Benchmark information about where students should be, given their grade and state standards; (4) Longitudinal data about student growth and performance over time; and (5) Analytics about student progress toward college and career readiness. (Contains 5 resources.)
