Utilizing Models of Data-Driven Decision Making to Secure the Success of All Minnesota Students in K–12 and Beyond.

Schools lack the capacity and tools to utilize the volumes of information available to them regarding the progress of students and to translate information into action—particularly to ensure the success of students of color, English-language learners, and students from high-poverty neighborhoods. Michael Rodriguez (Department of Educational Psychology) will partner with the Minnesota Minority Education Partnership to develop a set of tools for schools to use information on multiple student indicators for school change and improved decision making. The districts of St. Paul and Long Prairie will be involved in pilot testing. The project also will bridge the identification of student outcome indicators in K–12 to outcomes in higher education. The project will involve interviews with key stakeholders and will result in two reports of best practices, stakeholder position statements, and user’s guides or tools for translating information regarding multiple student indicators into action steps.
