Data culture is critical in times of uncertainty and crisis. In a well-established districtwide culture of data-driven decision making, data anchors the path forward and supports navigation through uncharted waters.
The most effective data-driven cultures inform decision-making at every level of a district, which means district administrators must facilitate a culture of support to ensure every educator can effectively interpret and leverage data. In order to make sense of student data, educators must have three key elements: easy-to-use tools, training, and a culture that promotes the use of data in decision-making. With all three of these in place, teachers and school leadership can develop the data literacy necessary to translate raw analytics outputs into targeted action.
Adopting a data-driven culture and harnessing the power of analytics will help move education agencies toward a more functional and responsive post-COVID world.
