How States Can Use Data to See What’s Working for Students

October 11, 2016

The Data Quality Campaign released recommendations that outline opportunities within ESSA “to use data to examine what is working for students—and what is not—to meet states’ education goals.” Within the recommendations, DQC has laid out “Four Policy Priorities,” which are meant to “help states do more than meet the letter of the law in ESSA by maximizing the data foundation they have already built over the past decade,” citing opportunities for states to: measure what matters; make data use possible; be transparent and earn trust; and guarantee access and protect privacy.
