Data use for educational improvement is studied under many guises (e.g., data use, data-based decision-making, data-driven decision-making, evidence use), all with the same intention: providing districts, schools, and educators with better information that can help educate children.  If offered in a useful form, such data can help teachers, principals and other educational personnel learn more about their students, improve their teaching craft, and ultimately impact a variety of educational outcomes.

This website provides resources to support the effective use of educational data at the K-12 level. In its current form, this site provides access to the published work of Jeffrey C. Wayman at the University of Texas at Austin. Check back often for newly-released work.
