Purpose: While states and districts are collecting more data and capturing greater detail than ever before, the capacity among stakeholders to effectively use these data is often lacking. This working group will help education stakeholders to more effectively use data to improve the education system and student learning.
Current Tasks: The Data Use Working Group is developing a series of audience-specific briefs that will be combined in a single final product. This resource will help teachers, administrators, and state program managers to leverage education data in appropriate and effective ways.
Meeting Schedule: The resource developed by the Data Use Working Group is currently undergoing review. No meetings are planned at this time.
