Data streams currently used in UK schools to inform accountability exercises

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

At the interface of research and practice in schools is the use of school effectiveness data for school improvement. A large increase in the volume of data being made available to schools in England has left teachers and local authority staff ‘data rich but information poor’. At the same time, the government is putting greater emphasis on measures of pupil and school performance in its inspection / evaluation schemes. This paper compares and contrasts the key data streams currently in use in English schools to inform both internal and external accountability exercises. Initial evidence gleaned from our (ESRC-funded) research into the use of data in schools in one region of England informs a summary of how these data streams are currently used by schools, and attempts to identify effective strategies for the future use of data for school improvement.
