19 Times Data Analysis Empowered Students and Schools: Which Students Succeed and Why?
Which Students Succeed and Why? This report answers this question by reviewing studies that used educational data to improve and address inequalities in the U.S. educational system. The studies included in this report show how the use of student data is important for students to reflect on their own achievements and future directions, as well as for teachers, administrators, districts, and states to identify trends, evaluate successes of educational changes, and to ensure that programs achieve desired results. As the author states, “properly used, mindfully implemented, and with appropriate privacy protections, student data is a tremendous resource to help schools fulfill the great promise of providing quality education for all” (p. 26).
