This book explains how collecting more data should increase student success, not to be "a more research-based, data-driven school." The book focuses on the human elements, such as hopes and fears, prior knowledge, and current needs. It strives to create active engagement with interaction with peers and data with the purpose of building a more collaborative culture and a shared sense of collective responsibility for all students' learning.

"A wonderful style of writing; very approachable and practical. Dr. Holcomb offers great tools, ideas, and strategies on using data." -- Jane Chadsey, Vice President

"Edie Holcomb's materials are thorough and useful. I utilized the previous edition of this book when teaching districts to use data to identify how to improve the academic achievement of students with disabilities."

-- Eva Kubinski, School Administration Consultant
"This book is full of practical supports, resources, and illustrations. It is well grounded in the work of schools and the importance of data to that mission." -- Megan Tschannen-Moran, Professor of Educational Leadership

"Dr. Holcomb provides vignettes and examples that offer insight into the day-to-day realities of school improvement issues. The ideas are presented in a logical manner and questions throughout the book provide opportunity for reflection."

-- Pamela H. Scott, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis
"When Dr. Holcomb published her first edition of "Getting Excited About Data", I was intrigued. She was not only a colleague of mine, but the term "excited" about data held a curiosity for me as data, at that time, had a sterilized, impersonal , and even fearful perception for teachers who truly entered the field as caring, nurturing professionals that fostered student development in a wholistic framework. I came to think otherwise after reading her work. Now, with her third edition and Dr. Holcomb's intent to lead educators to use data as a catalyst to foster their passion for continuous learning, I highly recommend her pragmatic approach in looking at data as a means to stir the hearts and minds of educators for the sake of our future human resources: the students we serve." -- Kathy Larson, Author/Consultant

"Yet again Edie Holcomb has engaged her exemplary skills in creating a significant new edition. This third volume conveys for us rich new ideas, understandings, and insights in providing the culture, content, and processes that will ensure that our data use leads to increased teaching quality and better outcomes for our students."

-- Shirley M. Hord, Scholar Laureate
