A Tale of Two Schools' Data

Two teachers are about to get their first look at their schools' student achievement reports. Although they teach in different districts, Joseph and Zindzi have been leading parallel teaching lives for a number of years. They both teach mathematics in schools of similar size, ethnic composition, and socioeconomic demographics.  Read this fascinating report to find out what happens.

Achieving with Data

This study shows how high-performing school systems use data to improve instruction for elementary students.  In this report,  the work of four school systems that were identified as leaders in data-driven decision making are captured.  This study included two mid-size urban school districts and two nonprofit charter management organizations (CMOs). All of these school systems have records of improving student achievement over time.
