Data-Based Decision Making


🎥 What does it mean? Data are used to solve problems and make important decisions that impact student academic, behavior, and social-emotional well-being. Such decisions should create a continuous cycle of systems improvement involving educator support, policy enhancement, and procedural/instructional improvement. Data sources might include existing academic and demographic records, surveys, interviews, observations, program/policy/process data and fidelity data.
