Navigating the Challenges of Helping Teachers Use Data to Inform Educational Decisions
Thomas, Kelli; Huffman, Douglas
Administrative Issues Journal: Education, Practice, and Research, v1 n2 p94-102 2011
In this paper we present a model of collaborative evaluation that has been used to engage teachers in data-based decision making for improving teaching and learning in mathematics and science. We examine three external challenges that threaten the process of continuous school improvement; namely, making sense of data, policy changes, and curriculum changes. In addition, we describe how the collaborative evaluation model facilitated progress beyond these challenges.
