“This book will appeal to practitioners, trainers, and students of school psychology alike.”

NASP Communiqué

“Most schools are data rich and assessment poor. If you work at a school that places reams of data into three-ring binders and leaves them sitting on a shelf, this book is a 'must read.' The book shows how to build a culture of data in a school. It is applicable to most settings and provides an excellent model to analyze data for individual students and entire systems. The emphasis on leadership is unique, refreshing, and important for systems change. The systematic use of data to make better decisions is key to most reform efforts and to improving student learning—this book will make that goal a reality.”

—Matthew K. Burns, PhD, Rose and Irving Fein Endowed Professor of Special Education, University of Florida; Assistant Director, University of Florida Literacy Institute

The Data-Driven School is an exquisite, timely tool to help educators use data confidently and efficiently—and to ensure that 'data-based decision making' is not just a buzz phrase. I recommend this book to any teacher or practitioner who participates on a problem-solving team. The authors provide practical strategies that educators can start using immediately to overcome common teaming challenges and successfully navigate the data inquiry process. I can't wait to share this book with my colleagues and professional network!”

—Jill Battal, PhD, NCSP, Data and Research Coordinator, Comprehensive Behavioral Health Model, Boston Public Schools

“This is a 'go-to' book for any school district trying to improve collective efficacy around data-based decision making. What makes this book different is its comprehensive approach. The authors align systems-level problem solving, data analysis training, technology, and relationships, and present applications at all levels of the school community—district leadership teams, school improvement teams, grade-level teams, and problem-solving teams. Case studies and a summary of key issues in each chapter provide meaningful, job-embedded professional learning opportunities for educators. I highly recommend this book to school psychologists, school leaders, and teacher leaders who want to foster a culture of improvement based on data.”

—Kimberly Gibbons, PhD, Director, Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement, University of Minnesota
