The article offers information on the Data Analysis Framework for Instructional Decision Making. It is a student assessment tool that consists of guiding questions to assist school literacy team members in analyzing data, discussing the patterns and relationships within those data, and constructing interpretations that they can then translate into goals and action steps to improve reading and writing achievement. The three major categories of data that are considered for improving reading and writing instruction are reading performance data, professional development data, and classroom data.
