“I am a deep believer in the power of data to drive our decisions. Data gives us the road map to reform. It tells us where we are, where we need to go, and who is most at risk.”

Arni Duncan

quantitative vs qualitative
Quantitative vs. Qualitative
  • Qualitative does have its place
    • Can be harder to collect, analyze
    • Can tell you the story behind the numbers
    • What opportunities do you have to gather it
    • How can you make it reasonably standardized
data quality
Data Quality
  • Consider requiring liaison verification
  • Consider tracking large changes
  • Consider comparison groups like free lunch, employment rates, census data
  • Consider n size: small group sizes skew

Tips

  • Be mindful of their timelines
  • Find ways to help assure quality

Final Thoughts

Data…"can basically take us out of the dark ages of just kinda teaching and hoping, which is what a lot of folks have done for a very long time. A lot of teachers have taught their hearts out and don't have a good way of telling who's learning what and what's working and what's not.“
