Measurement for Improvement
This 90-minute workshop will guide participants in effectively developing and using measurement and data to improve their systems. Improvement approaches are grounded in the effective use of
data, and yet many educators rely on conventional measures that are not designed to guide
improvement efforts. In this workshop, participants will get an overview of how measurement for
improvement departs from the typical uses of measurement in education, which stem from
accountability or research paradigms. Participants will also learn how to link their theory of
practice improvement to a system of measures that they can track and utilize to understand if
and how their system is improving.
