Project 'Datateams' University of Twente

Logo datateams

Data-based decision making has become increasingly important within secondary education. The theory behind this line of thought is that all the information available within the school system should not only be used for external accountability but also to improve education. Experience shows that, only far too often, little use is being made of all the information that is available at schools. Data-based decision making seems to be a marvelous concept, but how can one implement this concept in a practical way? The project ‘Datateams’ of the University of Twente aims to do just that: to support schools to implement data-based decision making into their daily practice at school.
