Solve your school's problems by using data.
This book shows you how to:
• replace hunches and hypotheses with facts
• identify the root causes of problems
• measure progress toward comprehensive schoolwide improvement
• effectively gather and use data to make better decisions
With clear and concrete examples from schools, "Data Analysis for Comprehensive Schoolwide Improvement" shows you how to:
• clarify what data are important
• use and analyze data
• communicate and report results
This book enables you to find and use the following types of data:
• drop-out/graduation rates
• assessments of current teaching practices
• teachers', students', administrators', & parents' perceptions of the learning environment
I am passionate about the impact data analyses make on building strong schools, teachers, administrators, and district, county, regional, state, and national education systems. Data not only tell us where we have been, where we are right now, and where we are going; data inform us of the ways to get there, sensibly.
This book is not a statistics text. It shows how to use data to gain answers to logical questions and to understand current and future impact. Examples from real schools illustrate the points.
With the enactment of "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB), data analysis is no longer optional! The requirements take us deep into the data to help us identify and uncover powerful solutions to schools' greatest challenges. I believe we have to look more systematically and deeper than we are used to looking to get to analyses that will make the difference. We must also look at other data sources besides our required state assessments.
This second edition includes updated and new information gathered since the publication of the first edition. It also includes some of the same information included in other books I've written—at the request of the book reviewers and participants in workshops using the "Data Analysis" book.
I want this book to contribute to the success of schools and districts throughout the United States and abroad, because… I want schools to prove that they can help ALL children learn and be all they want to be in the future.
