Tapping into the Power of Longitudinal Data


"The momentum behind building high-quality data systems to harvest better information about student, school and district performance has never been stronger. To meet the goal of improving student achievement, policymakers and educators need longitudinal data systems capable of providing timely, valid and relevant data. Although collecting better data is essential, knowing how to analyze and apply this information is just as important. With this knowledge and access to longitudinal data:
  • Teachers can tailor instruction to help each student improve;

  • Administrators can manage more effectively and efficiently; and

  • Policymakers can evaluate which policy initiatives show the best evidence of increasing student achievement."
