Collecting and analysing data to monitor and challenge school standards is an increasingly important – and unavoidable – aspect of our education system. But how do we ensure we are generating useful information to support learning and make informed decisions, and not needlessly ramping up workload?
This book will guide you through the different types of data schools can, and should, generate; how to make the best use of it, and what to avoid. From standardised tests and teacher assessment, to managing data and developing a data strategy, this book will equip you with the tools you need to dataproof your school.
