"A new vision of assessment is emerging around the concept of national learning “data ecosystems” that push information up from individual learning activities, classrooms, and schools, and merge it at key points with local and national economic, social, and technical data. The goal of this special report is to understand the promise that vision holds, to examine the challenges that must be solved and the systemic gaps that must be bridged, and to offer a set of guidelines and practical, nationally focused recommendations to senior educational leaders and policymakers."

 

Just another reminder how important data is - but even more so, the analytics that provide meaningful insights...all of which hinge on our ability to do a better job of measuring what matters.
