Time To Act On Data, Improving Student Outcomes
December 5, 2018
Last week, DQC released its annual landscape analysis, Time to Act 2018, which examined state efforts to leverage data to improve student outcomes, and also takes a look at future opportunities to do so under ESSA. DQC’s analysis found that state leaders responded to the opportunities under ESSA by setting education goals that can be measured and met using data. Now they must make good on these promises and take the next steps to put data to work for students. DQC’s report lays out the actions state leaders can take to use data in service of ESSA goals, including examples and best practices from bright spot states leading this work.
