IES Practice Guide:
Using Student Achievement Data to
Support Instructional Decision Making

← back

Summary

This guide offers five recommendations to help educators effectively use data to monitor students’ academic progress and evaluate instructional practices. The guide recommends that schools set a clear vision for schoolwide data use, develop a data-driven culture, and make data part of an ongoing cycle of instructional improvement. The guide also recommends teaching students how to use their own data to set learning goals. Laura Hamilton (Chair) RAND Corporation, Richard Halverson University of Wisconsin–Madison, Sharnell S.
