Data in a day

December 23, 2002

Developed by the Northwest Regional Education Lab, Data in a Day (DIAD) is a tool that provides a short, but intensive, opportunity for a school to gather data about issues that both student and staff view as important. A facilitator usually works collaboratively with staff and students to select critical themes to observe at the school and then guides the group to summarize data collected about these themes and present them back to the school. By including students as active participants, the process enables a school to listen to students' voices about their own learning.
