The data available to states and school districts has exploded, creating new opportunities to develop measures that can be used at the student, educator, school, and system levels. But most states lack the capacity and resources to take full advantage of their data for diagnosis and improvement. Research-to-practice partnerships address this challenge, connecting educators and policymakers with researchers who provide analytic support and help education agencies build capacity to conduct their own analyses. This webinar highlights three partnerships between state and local policymakers and the Regional Educational Laboratory Mid-Atlantic that used existing data to develop new measures:
Chris Boccanfuso, Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education
Jessica Harding and Mariesa Herrman, Mathematica and REL Mid-Atlantic
Dallas Dotter, Mathematica and REL Mid-Atlantic
Tim Kautz and Kathleen Feeney, Mathematica and REL Mid-Atlantic
Discussant: Joy Lesnick, School District of Philadelphia
