Document Number: 10895Five Steps for Structuring Data-Informed Conversations and Action in Education - Education data teams are shown how to move beyond simply reporting data to applying data to direct strategic action. Using questions, suggested activities, and activity forms, this guide provides a framework and the tools and vocabulary needed to support an informed conversation around the data they generate or acquire. The guide walks data teams through five key steps in using data for informed decision making and strategic action: setting the stage, examining the data, understanding the findings, developing an action plan, and monitoring progress and measuring success.
