Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems Data Use Standards: Standards in Practice
<! -- /.resource-content -->
This resource contains three case studies that illustrate the essential knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors necessary to use data effectively being applied by educators in real-world settings. It is a companion publication to SLDS Data Use Standards: Knowledge, Skills, and Professional Behaviors for Effective Data Use. This resource is intended to inform pre- and in-service educator training programs. The language is purposefully nontechnical to make it accessible for educators.
The content of this resource was developed by the Data Use Standards Workgroup of the Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) Grant Program. The Workgroup involved 27 members including 14 states and Guam. Members of state education agencies, local education agencies, regional service agencies, postsecondary institutions, and state P-20W+ (early childhood through workforce) were represented. The case studies are presented with supporting visuals to assist the reader in understanding three (3) approaches utilized to assist teachers and administrators in understanding and using data effectively. The case studies provide real examples with information and examples that could be modeled or adapted by others looking to grow similar practices within their own systems.
