Using Data Visualizations in K-12 to Improve Strategic Decision Making
In the Madison Metropolitan School District, the Research & Program Evaluation Office provides rigorous and high-quality research and analysis to support district priorities. By using data dashboards to create accessible, easy-to-understand visualizations of a wide variety of district information, the office has helped administrators understand what's working, what's not working and why, improving strategic decision making.
Attend this webinar to learn how MMSD has used data visualizations to identify changes in student demographics, measure the effectiveness of diversity initiatives, understand the correlations between poverty, disability and achievement, identify infrastructure needs and illuminate proficiency gaps across student groups.
