Improving Student Performance Through Assessment Data
Read the White Paper
Despite our intensely data-focused society, using student data to improve learning outcomes remains one of the least understood practices in education. This is unfortunate because data-driven instruction is one of the most effective components of improving student performance. This white paper explains how a group of 43 schools in Utah achieved significant gains in student proficiency through the state’s Assessment to Achievement (A2A) project, and how other state and district offices can replicate this innovative model.
