Collecting and analysing data to monitor and challenge school standards is an increasingly important – and unavoidable – aspect of our education system. But how do we ensure we are generating useful information to support learning and make informed decisions, and not needlessly ramping up workload?

This book will guide you through the different types of data schools can, and should, generate; how to make the best use of it, and what to avoid. From standardised tests and teacher assessment, to managing data and developing a data strategy, this book will equip you with the tools you need to dataproof your school.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
