Secretary of Education Arne Duncan gave a speech on the importance of using data to inform education policy.

“There are already districts making exemplary use of data systems to let parents, teachers and administrators know how best to support their students,” he told a group of researchers at a conference sponsored by the Education Department’s Institute of Education Sciences.

How can teachers and principals use test results, attendance and other data to inform what happens in their classrooms?
