DO NOT FOLD, SPINDLE, or MUTILATE: Broadening the Discussion about Educational Data (A Response to Iorio and Adler)


by Philip J. Piety — April 19, 2013

This is a response to a recent commentary that critiqued the use of data in education was leading to an obsession with quantitative reasoning and undermining core educational values. The author agrees with many of the concerns and presents an alternative argument drawing off of a new book titled “Assessing the Educational Data Movement” that frames the use of data in sociotechnical terms. He issues a call for inclusive dialog where the important perspectives of practitioners can be considered systemically alongside other values for educational data.
