How can Teachers Show They are Using Data Effectively? is the latest question-of-the-week at my Education Week Teacher column.

Here’s the full question from Robert Thornton:

“How can teachers demonstrate to their students and administrators that data is informing the decisions they make regarding their instruction?”

By this I mean how does a teacher go beyond a change in mindset and towards becoming a leader in changing the culture of a school by making it clear beyond doubt that data is indeed informing their decisions.
