ESSA │Using Data for Improvement
Data are the key to continuous improvement and reflection. When educators plan, they must use data to gain insight and focus for their goals. Data patterns reveal strengths and weaknesses in the system and provide excellent direction for data-based improvement decisions. When educators implement change, it is important to collect data that describe the impact of the strategies they are utilizing.
