The work of the partners in establishing a research base for best practices in data use in Europe, as well as the data use model that emerged from the research, ensured that the work products of this project are relevant to the particular conditions of education in Poland, Germany, United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Lithuania.
The professional development course and a survey assessment, brought a set of tools that help build capacity to use data to improve teaching and learning of European educators . The survey instrument can be used by any school administrator to assess the extent of data use within his/her school, including areas of strength and areas of weakness. The professional development course can be administered by any professional development provider and may include tools, protocols, and activities that will build capacity within school-based teams to establish a culture of utilizing data to inform decisions about policy, programs, and instructional practice.
Due to the withrawal of the UK partner – Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT), Public Consulting Group (PCG) took over all of the SSAT's responsibilities to guaranteee that the project continues and is finalized effectively and on time. To compensate for the withdrawal and to fully utilize knowledge and expertise gathered and created during the project, PCG undertook intensified commercialization and dissemination efforts and provided added value to the project by second stage adaptation of the Data Use course to increase the target groups outreach and commercialization which will contribute to ensuring durability of the DATAUSE project results.
PCG Polska aimed at increasing the project dissemination reach through focusing mostly on improving teachers' and students' performance by:
