Building a Better Relationship between Education and Data

Empowering Educators to Lead the Way on Data Use

Despite the presence of technology and data in almost every aspect of our lives, the K-12 education sector is still grappling with how to effectively use data to support instruction and student learning.  While some important progress has been made, many educators still need support--including time, training and resources--on how to manage and use data.

On  March 17, 2015, the Center on Education Policy (CEP), in collaboration with Renaissance Learning and the Data Quality Campaign, convened a conversation on the campus of the George Washington University about empowering educators to lead the way in using data to improve classroom instruction and student learning. The conversation looked at state and local leadership on data use, including the benefits and challenges associated with new technologies that process and organize school data. Issues covered include:

  • Data and assessment literacy: Empowering teachers and administrators
  • State leadership: Creating the conditions and culture for effective data use
  • More than just numbers: The power and potential of data visualization
