How Educators use Data to Inform Program & Practice

Simply put, data is a collection of information that is used to make informed decisions. In the Early Experiences age groups, educators use both data and teaching strategies like the Abecedarian 3A to ensure the Lifelong Learning program and educator practices are centered on children’s interest and developmental milestones. Although there are many ways data is collected, we will focus on the use of Progress Records.
