Your Name and Title: Jenny Grant Rankin, Chief Education and Research Officer
School, Library, or Organization Name: Illuminate Education
Co-Presenter Name(s): N/A
Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Southern California, United States of America
Language in Which You Will Present: English
Target Audience(s): Educator Leaders (administrators, department chairs, etc.) and anyone using data in K-12 School Districts
Short Session Description (one line): Apply research to provide data to staff in ways that assist analysis accuracy.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Most educators analyze student data in isolation and make flawed inferences, despite professional development benefits and the support of staff. This presentation provides insight into why this problem is occurring and sheds light on a source of support often overlooked: the data system, which has long been the “elephant in the room” when educators and researchers search for ways to ensure that data-informed decisions are based on accurate interpretation of the data. Educators around the globe use varied data systems to facilitate their analyses of student data, and research from around the world is shedding growing light on analysis supports that different data systems use (and in other cases, could use) to improve educators’ accuracy when analyzing data, regardless of language or country. The presentation summarizes the international movement in data system research that demands more from systems in the form of analysis guidance, and outlines specific steps educator leaders can take to ensure they and their data systems provide data to staff in ways that assist analysis accuracy and thus further other efforts in data-informed decision-making.
