This webinar will provide opportunity for conversation consideration of the findings from a master’s research dissertation that investigated several key issues relating to teacher’s use of data in a secondary setting. It will allow participants to reflect on practices in their own school context that may be supporting or be barriers to effective data use, highlighting opportunities for leading and supporting staff in this process.
