Weave Data into Learning: Support and Planning Are Key to Integrating Data Use into Teacher Practice
Jimerson, Jo Beth
Journal of Staff Development, v34 n5 p50-53 Oct 2013
Teachers and school leaders have been pressed to use data over the last few decades, and that pressure is increasing. Yet while data use has become a popular term among educators and politicians, evidence demonstrates that teachers and school leaders still struggle with making sense of data in the service of improved learning outcomes. To do this well requires that leaders engage in thoughtful planning and that they apply what they already know about effective professional learning practices to data use and data systems use. This article presents suggestions and resources that district leaders can use as they work to support data-informed practice among teachers.
