How Can Schools of Education Help to Build Educators’ Capacity to Use Data? A Systemic View of the Issue
The objective of this article is to understand what schools of education are doing to prepare teachers to use data in their practice. The study examined the extent to which schools of education teach stand-alone courses on data-driven decision making or integrate data use concepts into existing courses. It also examined state licensure and certification requirements to determine if and how data use is included in documentation. The analyses yield several key findings. First, schools of education report that they are teaching stand-alone courses on data-driven decision making. The syllabus analyses provide a deeper examination into what actually is being taught in a subset of the courses. The licensure analyses provide a perspective on how education may view data literacy.
