Data Readiness Tool
The Data Readiness Tool is divided into three sections. Section 1, Tools for District and School Leaders, is aimed at district and school leaders who are just beginning to think hard about acquiring an electronic data system. Designed to support each person's thinking, this section contains discussion elements along with corresponding questions that prompt dialogue around key issues for readiness. Section 2, Tools for Facilitators, makes it possible to use the guide as a resource for a group process to ascertain readiness—a sort of needs assessment. This section provides additional information on choosing and implementing a data system that will help guide further investigations, as well as worksheets to help facilitate or organize a discussion. Section 3, Resources, presents a variety of resources for data use and data systems.
