Evidence and Decision Making in Education Systems


by Christopher Thorn, Robert H. Meyer & Adam Gamoran — 2007

This chapter conceptualizes and reviews educational indicator systems, focusing on how evidence delivered by these systems is (or is not) being used now and how it might be used in the future to support professional learning and decision making at the district, state, and national levels. This topic is particularly salient because under the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) (2002) law, massive amounts of data are being collected, but states and districts frequently lack the capacity to use the data for school improvement.
