Data is More Than Just a Hammer! How to Use Data Effectively to Guide Instruction

Data can be so misunderstood. There's even disagreement over the word itself. Singular? Plural? Both? 

It’s unfortunate that data often has a negative connotation on school campuses says Mona Savage, English Language Arts Elementary Coordinator for the McKinney Independent School District in McKinney, Texas.  

 “The biggest misconception about data is that it is the hammer. It’s not the hammer,” she says. “It’s not supposed to point out inefficiencies, weaknesses, and a lack of knowledge. It does just the opposite. It finds areas to grow, areas to improve.” Instead of looking at data as a hammer that crushes things, what if you could position data as a tool that helps build things?
