Investing in Educator Data Literacy Improves Student Achievement. Evidence of Impact: The Oregon Data Project
Data Quality Campaign
Since 2007 the Oregon DATA Project has been investing resources to provide educators on-the-job training around effective data use to improve student achievement. New evidence shows that their efforts are paying off. A 2011 Oregon DATA Project report detailed the impact of their investment in the state's educators, finding the following: (1) Participating schools were closing the achievement gap at a faster rate than schools without access to data training; and (2) Teachers in participating schools felt more comfortable using data in their classrooms, suggesting a culture change around data use. With this report Oregon emerges as a shining example of this type of investment in educators. Still, most states have not sufficiently invested in their educators by providing them the resources they need--including access and training on how to use data in the classroom--to do the vital work of improving student learning.
