Description

Translating Data into Information to Improve Teaching and Learning helps educators think through the selection of meaningful data elements and effective data tools to strengthen their understanding of how to increase the quality of data and data reports at each educational level.


Bernhardt advises school administrators and teacher leaders on the collection, creation and effective utilisation of student data, specifically through the purchase of a data warehouse. Complementing her Using Data to Improve Student Learning series, she offers advice on collecting types of data useful to school improvement plans, improving the quality of data, planning for a data warehouse to translate data into information, data discovery and mapping, selecting analytical data tools, training for use of the data warehouse, and managing the warehouse. The final chapters comprise case studies demonstrating successful and problematic plans; the appendix contains rubrics for continuous improvement.
