Report Intro/Brief:
“When information about students is provided in a timely, useful manner, every adult working with a child is able to support that student’s learning more effectively. This vision can and must become a reality for every student. States have a unique and critical role to play in bringing it to life. In partnership with leaders from across the education field, the Data Quality Campaign has developed Time to Act: Making Data Work for Students—a set of recommendations to help states enact policies that are critical to ensuring that data is used to support student learning.

In partnership with leaders from across the education field, the Data Quality Campaign has developed a set of recommendations to help states enact policies that are critical to ensuring that data is used to support student learning. The Four Policy Priorities to Make Data Work for Students presented in this paper are the following:

  1.  Measure What Matters: Be clear about what students must achieve and have the data to ensure that all students are on track to succeed.
  2. Make Data Use Possible: Provide teachers and leaders the flexibility, training, and support they need to answer their questions and take action.
  3. „„ Be Transparent and Earn Trust: Ensure that every community understands how its schools and students are doing, why data is valuable, and how it is protected and used.
  4. Guarantee Access and Protect Privacy: Provide teachers and parents timely information on their students and make sure it is kept safe.”
