Improving Skills of School Leaders in Using Data to Drive Improvement: Building on a tested District model

Improving Skills of School Leaders in Using Data to Drive Improvement:  Building on a tested District model

Organized by AERA Division H (Research, Evaluation, and Assessment in Schools) this course is focused on improving the use of data and methods of research and evaluation. The course is built around a model that has been designed and tested in the Wake County (North Carolina) Public School System. Lead objectives for the course are: share the data-driven decision making model that has been used to train non-evaluators to use data in their selection of efforts to meet their needs and to monitor the success of those efforts; address common problems and possible solutions for issues that are typically faced in evaluating the success of efforts within school systems; and discuss some ways to organize data which make it more user-friendly.
