Reviews

"Too often the debate about education sets up a false dichotomy between rigorous use of data on the one hand and teachers' professionalism on the other. This book demonstrates triumphantly that when the two go together, students benefit." -- Sir Michael Barber
"This is a very good book and the Canadian educationalists should be congratulated on producing a high quality piece of work. In general terms it is well laid out and well-presented, making it easy for the reader to access." -- Brent Davies, Professor
"This book is recommened as a professional development tool for anyone interested in using data to improve school achievement. It would be particularly useful as a study guide for teachers and schools focused on learning how to use data effectively to support their work with children in their own classrooms." -- Melanie Tait
"The book sets out to integrate two aspects of school improvement that most think are mutually exclusive: data to improve schools and systems and data to improve the individual child's learning experience. It is a remarkable book as it achieves this challenging task. A great read." -- Brent Davies, Professor Emeritus the University of Hull
