Strategic Data Project Toolkit for Effective Data Use

The Strategic Data Project (SDP) Toolkit for Effective Data Use is a resource guide for education agency analysts who collect and analyze data on student achievement. Completing the toolkit produces a set of basic, yet essential, human capital and college-going analyses that every education agency should have as a foundation to inform strategic management and policy decisions.

Supporting Rater Accuracy and Consistency in Classroom Observation

The purpose of this webinar series was to provide an opportunity for states to hear from and ask questions of experts who help to design and implement classroom observation systems that support rater accuracy and consistency. The National Center for Teacher Effectiveness invited six organizations that are currently supporting this type of work in states and districts to describe what they do and what they have learned to help implement these systems at scale.
