Using Data for School Improvement - In 1998, the Annenberg Challenge national office sponsored a “practitioner’s conference” that brought together teachers, principals and administrators from disadvantaged schools to learn about accountability. This paper compiles findings from that conference with suggestions for using and interpreting school data. Some suggestions include: (1) having a clear purpose when developing a plan for data collection; (2) carefully choosing assessment tools that are appropriate to the task and aligned with the purpose; and (3) finding resources to help with planning, coordination, collection, interpretation and reporting of data. (Lorraine Keeney, Annenberg Institute for School Reform, May 1998)...
