The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) has released SREB Insights, an interactive data tool to help policymakers compare and understand state trends, policies, and recommended actions for reaching college- and career-readiness standards.
SREB Insights features analysis around the alignment of state standards to college admission requirements, benchmarking of professional learning opportunities to help schools implement state standards and educator evaluation systems designed to help teachers get feedback on instruction so they can continuously improve their practice.
“Data can paint a picture of state trends in numbers, and SREB Insights makes that story more accessible to policymakers and education leaders,” said Joan Lord, SREB vice president of education data, policy research and programs. “We’re pleased to provide a new way to compare indicators of progress among states, quickly identify strengths, and delve deeply into state profiles to understand standards and best practices.”
The result is a user-friendly way for state policymakers, thought leaders and education leaders to navigate complex educational topics and better inform their decisions and practice.
Users can now review findings from three areas:
- High School Graduation and Postsecondary Readiness Policies
- Professional Learning for State College- and Career-Readiness Standards
- Implementation of Teacher Observation, Evaluation and Feedback Strategies
Additional reports will be brought online in the coming months.
