Data Quality Campaign Releases New Tool to Help Answer Policy Questions Using Data

The Data Quality Campaign (DQC) created a new tool, Start with Your Questions, to help stakeholders think about how data can be used to answer education policy questions such as: "Are my students meeting the benchmarks this year that show they're on track to be prepared for college and careers?" The interactive tool allows users to pair a key stakeholder group (families, teachers, taxpayers, etc.) with an action issue such as 'teacher effectiveness' and then view the corresponding questions and resources. There is also an interactive map to view what questions states are currently using data to answer.
