Abstract

Mapping the learning progress of students through data collection is essential to schools, Professor Geoff Masters writes.

Collecting educational data serves three vital purposes in schools:

  • to establish where students are in their learning
  • to monitor student improvement, and
  • to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.

These uses of data in school education all require an appropriate frame of reference for interpreting data.
