Every Teacher Should Succeed with Data Literacy
Mandinach, Ellen B.; Gummer, Edith S.
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n8 p43-46 May 2016
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, 2015) moves education further along the path toward becoming the evidence-based and data-driven profession that policy makers have continually called for. They have stressed the need for hard evidence to undergird educational decisions rather than relying on anecdotes and intuitions. This means teachers must continue to use data from many diverse sources to inform their classroom and instructional practice. It also requires that more teachers become data literate.
