    Doing What Works

As part of a coherent approach to using data for instructional improvement, teachers can use a cycle of instructional improvement. This cycle begins with collecting and preparing data using results from multiple assessments. Next, teachers can question the data and develop hypotheses. Teachers can then modify instruction to test the hypotheses and subsequently examine new data to decide if the changes have increased student learning.
