Transforming Data into Action

12th August, 2021 @ 9:00 am


12/08/2021 - 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


This project supports leadership teams interrogate student achievement data at a deeper level, and to plan for action arising from this interrogation.   

A mentor text (Venables, D., How Teacher Can Turn Data into action, ASCD, 2014) will be used to frame this action research focussed on:  

  • Developing data literacy 
  • Reviewing existing data – asking probing questions 
  • Triangulating data – ‘connect the dots’ between data sets to reveal insights and patterns 
  • Determining gaps and goals – synthesising the data into meaningful information (data story) 
  • Planning for action – designing a prototype data-informed action plan 

The design of the project, which involves a half day data clinic followed by bespoke coaching clinics with individual schools, will provide tailored support for leadership teams in their unique school contexts.


Target audience: School leadership and drive teams  

Delivery mode: Face to face
