Making Decisions with Data

Welcome! This interactive website provides instruction and resources about how to incorporate data-driven decision making into your daily work, whether you are a classroom teacher, administrator, or hold multiple roles. These modules are designed to help a variety of education professionals understand and use data to make decisions that will improve teaching and learning. This method of using data to drive decision making has already lead to major pedagogical innovations, such as Peer Instruction, developed by Dr. Eric Mazur of Harvard University.

Each module is designed to achieve specific learning objectives for the user and presented in a sequential progression of knowledge and skills. Though we encourage you to engage with all five modules in order, you may also choose to view the learning objectives at the beginning of each module and decide whether the content meets your current needs.
