Translating data into strategy to achieve better student outcomes
Schools across Australia are under immense pressure to improve student outcomes. Implementing data driven, evidence based teaching is critical to enhancing student learning and enabling differentiated teaching. With an enormous amount of data available to schools, the challenge is to identify meaningful data to inform a whole of school strategy, addressing not just academic excellence, but also the holistic wellbeing of students and their preparedness with soft skills. Furthermore, schools must effectively support, equip and engage teachers with data through professional learning to ensure continuous teacher improvement in teaching and learning.
