Editorial Reviews

Review

"Goldring and Berends provide practical and strategic counsel on what data should be collected, how data can be productively analyzed, and who should be involved. Their book positions this advice deftly in research on leadership and organizational change. As school leaders confront the challenges of meeting the needs of all students through continuous school improvement, they will find this book an essential resource." (Willis D. Hawley, Professor of Education and Public Policy 2007-12-11)

"Dives headfirst into the murky waters of data and provides the site administrator with a clear, succinct view and practical ideas to obtain the real positive change in student outcomes desired by all.” (Cathy Patterson, Elementary Learning Specialist 2008-04-21)

"Truly a magnificent piece of work! The discussion questions are ideal for study groups and team meetings. This is the new administrator’s bible. Keep it by your bedside, especially when the scores come in." (Roxanne Cardona, Principal 2008-05-12)

"The book covers a complex process, connects it to the requirements of NCLB, and defines many aspects of data analysis so that a lay person can understand it." (Margarete Couture, Principal 2008-05-12)

This book was required for my course work. It was just alright. In the education field we hear so much about data and using it for instruction that this book didn't really have any new information.
