Surveys and Reports

State of the Education Beat 2016: A Field With a FutureState of the Education Beat 2016: A Field With a Future
To learn more about education journalists and the work they do, the Education Writers Association (EWA) teamed up with the Education Week Research Center to conduct a first-of-its-kind online national survey and follow-up interviews. The result is this report, State of the Education Beat 2016. The report offers comprehensive new data that provides the field with important baseline information. The findings can be used to inform decisions about resources devoted to the education beat, and for assessments by media outlets of how they cover—or do not cover—education.

Webinars

Administrators' Data Gaps: A Crisis of ConfidenceAdministrators' Data Gaps: A Crisis of Confidence
We surveyed a national sample of school and district leaders to learn more about their experiences and perspectives regarding the use of data analytics in K-12 education. Findings examine administrators' confidence in student analytics systems, identify barriers to data use, and point to potential costs of ineffective analytics.

White Papers

WiFi Woes: How Mediocre Wi-Fi Interferes With Instruction in American SchoolsWiFi Woes: How Mediocre Wi-Fi Interferes With Instruction in American Schools
We administered a survey to a national sample of classroom teachers to learn more about their experiences and perspectives regarding internet access in schools. Results indicate that although teachers strongly value the use of Wi-Fi for instruction, the Wi-Fi they have in their schools is just not getting the job done in the classroom.
