    DescriptionTest, state, or provincial scores are too far from the local classroom and individual learners to elicit powerful conversations about practice. Many schools limit their collaborative conversations to these high-stakes tests due to external pressure for growth. Got Data? Now What? Creating and Leading Cultures of Inquiry offers useful tools and strategies to help data teams focus their goals and create the collaborative work necessary to successfully interpret and use data in their schools to ensure learning for all. This book explores three challenges that school teams face (1) committee without community, (2) time without tools, and (3) data without deliberation. Group members need to identify as a member of a group, be provided with efficient time use, and be involved in discussions about school data. Authors Laura Lipton and Bruce Wellman offer strategies and tools to confront these challenges and turn struggling committees into powerful communities of learners. Each chapter ends with an applicable data story that expounds on the chapter topic and showcases a team confronting a data dilemma. Using the authors' techniques for successful, collaborative data work, teams will be able to eliminate these hurdles and efficiently use data to enhance learning. Chapter 1 introduces readers to the characteristics of high-performing data cultures and allows readers to assess their teams' and their own work with data. Chapter 2 presents the collaborative learning cycle a three-phase model for productive group work with data. Chapter 3 describes how to identify gaps, successes, and root causes before developing solutions. Chapter 4 introduces data teams to the essential definitions and descriptions of data types and offers methods for gathering data. Chapter 5 explains how to develop high-performing groups. Chapter 6 describes the three modes of discourse in data-based discussions: (1) dialogue, (2) discussion, and (3) decision making. Finally, chapter 7 shows teams how to turn their data-based decisions into goal-oriented, productive action plans. End-of-chapter resources allow readers to exercise and extend their learning of chapter topics.

    Review quote
    "In Got Data? Now What?, Bruce and Laura have created a how-to book that allows teachers to take data off the shelf and put that information back in the classroom to create meaningful changes in practice. The protocols and frames in the book allow teachers to shift through the plethora of data available to them and identify a meaningful course of action. PLC leaders everywhere should be using this book as a guide to improving classroom teaching and learning." -- Ron McDermed "Superintendent, Cedar Springs Public Schools, Cedar Springs, Michigan"
