“Acting on Data: How Urban High Schools Use Data to Improve Instruction”
A new study examines how teachers at four “pioneering” urban high schools—two in traditional districts and two in charter networks—are using student data to inform a “more responsive and targeted” approach to instruction.
The report by the NewSchools Venture Fund, a San Francisco-based venture philanthropy, is the final study of a three-part research project exploring the use of data in schools.
Among the attributes of the schools studied are building a culture that values data-driven instruction; directing significant resources toward improving instructional capacity, such as using coaches to help new teachers and investing in broad-scale professional development; and using a mix of formal and informal assessments to guide instruction.
