    1. Improving data analysis, use, and reporting
    The data generated from assessment is only as useful as it is being acted upon. Teachers, administrators, and policymakers have more data than ever before, but it is not always being used to adjust instruction.  Providing “actionable” data to teachers for the improvement of instruction is every state’s goal.  This may involve the use of data dashboards, data coaches, interactive digital displays, and, in addition, the “people actions” that accompany the data tools.  Although the tools being used in schools, districts, and states vary, all are challenged to determine how best to provide their teachers with the data to make a difference. Hear from three states, Delaware, Hawaii and Missouri and learn how they have been perfecting data tools and the accompanying professional development approaches that make assessment data “actionable” and useful in adjusting instruction in classrooms.
