BECOMING MORE DATA WISE

In the summer of 2014, a group of OCS staff and principals set out to the Data Wise Institute at Harvard University to work together to build a vibrant learning community. The connections we created, and our capacity to learn from one another, began building a foundation to becoming more data wise. This page will continue to be updated with the team's work and recommended materials. 

 

Assess where your organization is with respect to each of the 8 steps of the Data Wise Improvement Process.
