The Data Quality Campaign (DQC) has released the findings of its eighth-annual state analysis, Data for Action 2012. The campaign highlights states' progress in improving student achievement by supporting effective education data use.
The study found that although most states collect quality data and have enacted some policy changes, they do not focus on helping parents, teachers or students effectively use the data.
However, some states - such as Ohio - are making good progress, having shown improvement from last year's analysis.
