The Linking Study - First Year Results: A Report of the First year Effects of an Experimental Study of the Impact of Feedback to Teachers on Teaching and Learning


"Efforts to increase teacher data use in the United States over the past five years have been largely focused on increasing teachers' access to student test results. We hypothesize that while student test data are useful to teachers, they are a limited form of evidence because they provide no information for teachers about the teaching that produces student test results. In this study we consider an alternative perspective about what data might be useful to teachers by providing teachers with data on their teaching to examine in conjunction with data on the learning of their students...The results indicate that providing feedback to teachers on their teaching in conjunction with data on the learning of their students has more impact on subsequent teaching and student performance than providing data to teachers on student learning alone."
