"Data Wise in Action" testifies to the challenges and triumphs of using data to improve student achievement. I have begun the Data Wise process at my school and I am seeing a real change in how the faculty views data. It is no longer a dreaded, dirty word but a valuable tool to improve teaching and learning. The bottom line is: Data Wise definitely works and yields great results! Denise Jamison, Principal, The Williamsburg Middle School Academy, Brooklyn, New York"
"Data Wise in Action" portrays the challenges educators face in building a collaborative, data-driven culture. Through each case study, the authors show how a systematic focus on data helps teachers make better instructional decisions and, through lots of teamwork, sharing of information, and collaboration, allows schools to become learning organizations focused on improving achievement for all students. Jonathan P. Raymond, Chief Accountability Officer, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Charlotte, North Carolina"
Drawing on the experiences of educators in a diverse array of schools, "Data Wise in Action" provides a wealth of practical guidance for creating a strong culture of data use. Readers will learn from the challenges and successes documented in each chapter. "Data Wise in Action" is an invaluable resource for schools or districts that want to use evidence to improve the quality of instruction not just raise test scores.
