This book will show how to personalize that data or put a face on it so that users can implement specific actions for specific students. It will make data more powerful and strategic for real use by keeping it personal. Educational change can be conceptualized as a three-legged stool with Standards-Assessment-Instruction representing the legs. Instruction is the leg that gets too little attention and will be emphasized in this book. This leg of the stool fits closely with 21st century Skills ideas such as Critical Thinking, Collaboration, and Decision-Making.

"Too often the debate about education sets up a false dichotomy between rigorous use of data on the one hand and teachers' professionalism on the other. This book demonstrates triumphantly that when the two go together, students benefit." -- Sir Michael Barber "This is a very good book and the Canadian educationalists should be congratulated on producing a high quality piece of work. In general terms it is well laid out and well-presented, making it easy for the reader to access." -- Brent Davies, Professor "This book is recommened as a professional development tool for anyone interested in using data to improve school achievement. It would be particularly useful as a study guide for teachers and schools focused on learning how to use data effectively to support their work with children in their own classrooms." -- Melanie Tait "The book sets out to integrate two aspects of school improvement that most think are mutually exclusive: data to improve schools and systems and data to improve the individual child's learning experience. It is a remarkable book as it achieves this challenging task. A great read." -- Brent Davies, Professor Emeritus the University of Hull
