D​ata Decision Ma​​​​king Process Guide

The purpose of the Data-driven Decision Making Companion Guide is to assist local educational agencies (LEAs) understand the school improvement planning process as the​ driver for continuous improvement. A critical component of the school improvement planning process is writing a school improvement plan (SIP) that is data-driven. A thoughtful and well-written SIP communicates specific, intentional actions to reach a desired outcome. Data-driven decision making refers to a school's ongoing process of collecting and analyzing multiple sources of formative and summative data to guide decisions toward improvement of the educational process. DDDM involves making decisions that are supported by data rather than making decisions that are intuitive or based on observation alone. ​​​
