Samenvatting

Leading Schools in a Data-Rich World 1e editie is een boek uitgegeven bij Sage Publications Inc. ISBN 9781412906463

More versatile than mere number crunching and statistics, data can be an effective tool-even a powerful catalyst-for change within a school. By replacing cynicism with conviction, learning to harness data's power, and becoming good users of data to positively impact student achievement, school leaders can develop three crucial capacities: an inquiry habit of mind, data literacy, and a culture of inquiry. Lorna M. Earl and Steven Katz show educators how to become comfortable with data and provide valuable tools for school improvement teams to use in their work, including: o Vignettes to support group discussion o Activities for practicing the ideas and concepts in the book o Task sheets o Short case studies with actual school data that show how the full process works in a school To improve schools, data can and should be a vital force in the change process. Using this essential resource, school leaders, school teams, study groups, and students of education can all make sense of data to plan and reform for maximum benefit.

Recensie(s)

The book that every school administrator needs. A clear blueprint for establishing a school climate open to an evidence-based approach to programmatic change. -- PsycCRITIQUES, August 2006 Leading Schools in a Data-Rich World is just what the doctor ordered to make data work for the betterment of schools. It is simultaneously deep and practical. It puts data at the center, but also puts it in perspective. It gives data a purpose and a set of conceptual and strategic tools for using knowledge wisely and effectively. -- From the Foreword by Michael Fullan I recommend this book for school leadership teams and study groups delving into the school improvement process. Earl and Katz manage to make leaders feel comfortable with using data to improve student achievement. The authors help reduce the fear of 'number crunching' with vignettes that show how meaningful data analysis through a team approach can truly help direct our efforts to improve academic outcomes. -- Ronald L. Russell, Assessment Consultant
