Using Data Solution's professional development prepares teachers to confidently analyze multiple types of data and use the results to plan changes in instruction. With evidence in hand, teachers develop short-cycle instructional plans focused on incorporating a range of strategies to help every student achieve at higher levels. Using Data PD was one of the first models based on developing teachers ability to collaborate professionally, to engage in deep, thoughtful inquiry – continuously!

Using Data to Make a Positive Impact on Learning
For more than 18 years, Using Data has helped school systems improve their practices and curriculum through utilizing the data sitting right in front of them every day. We strive to help educational organizations understand and utilize classroom as well as other data, so they may better serve their pupils. We provide our services to a variety of organizations and systems, such as:
Schools | School Districts | Schools of Education | Academic Professional Organizations
Focusing on PreK–12 grades, community college and schools of education, our professional development builds the capacity of teachers and leaders to identify needs and make the changes desired to impact the course of achievement at all levels.
Our systemic approach prepares district and school administrators to initiate, support, and sustain a continuous improvement process with data to provide exceptional improvements for students in every subject. From the administration to the teachers, we help entire education networks to improve student learning and performance.
We take great pride in helping schools and systems utilize data effectively by helping teachers gain the knowledge, the skills, the confidence, and the trust to use their data in ways that transform classroom and school practices.
