Gathering data

Four main sources of data should be considered when developing improvement goals.

  1. Student achievement

  2. The perception of stakeholders

  3. Systems & procedures

  4. Demography

 

Perception alone is not enough and needs to be substantiated by hard evidence before taking action. That said, perception is usually a strong indicator of a need to investigate further.
