ASCD Express Calls for Content: Doing Data Right 


callforcontentMost educators receive mounds of data that they’re not sure what to do with-—yet they can’t always get the information that they need day-to-day. This issue looks at how educators can extract useful data (both quantitative and qualitative) from the flood of information available, cope efficiently with data they’re required to gather, and generate learning-centered information about their students and schools. We seek articles on such topics as expanding our view of data beyond test scores, setting up a school culture in which teachers examine student data and translate data into meaningful action, using qualitative data-collection techniques like peer observation and home visits, harnessing technology to organize data, and sharing data with school stakeholders to help them mobilize support.

ASCD Express is looking for 600–1,000-word essays or  brief multimedia content on the theme “Doing Data Right.” Guidelines for submissions are here; please send your submissions to by September 1, 2015.
