Description: Having a data system is one component of data use. A critical piece to fostering data-informed decision-making throughout an organization is building the capacity of users. In this session, Metro Nashville Public Schools, which has empowered approximately 10,000 employees since 2010 to make informed decisions, will share the Data-Informed Decision-making Framework developed from their lessons learned. This session also will describe results from a quantitative study investigating the effects of data guides embedded in the district’s data warehouse designed to support data analysis efforts of MNPS Staff.
