Data-Based Decision Making empowers primary principals to become more knowledgeable about using data in their leadership responsibilities. It advocates deep examination of data with a framework of three questions to investigate and eliminate the obstacles that stand in the way of effective data use: What data are you looking for? How will you find the data? How will you use the data? Principals will learn how to use data to clarify decisions, identify solutions, reach struggling learners, strengthen instruction, target resources more effectively and re-examine their own role as school leader.
