Marker, Kathryn Christner – ProQuest LLC, 2016
Because data access may be perceived by principals as overwhelming or irrelevant rather than helpful (Wayman, Spikes, & Volonnino, 2013), data access does not guarantee effective data use.

The author agrees with them that a mechanistic…

Penick, John E.; Harris, Robin Lee. – National Science Teachers Association (NJ3), 2005
The best science teachers don't just get up in front of the class and start talking. They draw from a plan... a rationale... a purpose.
