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.
