“Data are to goals, what signposts are to travelers. Data are not endpoints but are essential to reaching them - the signposts on the road to school improvement. Thus, data and feedback are interchangeable and should be an essential feature of how schools do business.” -Schmoker
DDI is an inquiry based practice that happens at the district, school, and classroom level, and has a direct impact on decision making process that affect student achievement. Although schools have been collecting data for decades, it has only been in recent years that researchers have begun to define specific data driven practices that result in systematic reform. Forward thinking districts across the nation are strategically employing the DDI framework to not only analyze and make decisions about student achievement, but also narrow achievement gaps and improve teacher practice.
