This informative, interesting book addresses those who need to understand educational data and its place in school leadership and decision-making. It provides a set of practical tools for data analysis and decision-making using spreadsheet software and system dynamic models. Examples of the use of the popular Microsoft® Excel, several system dynamic models created by ITHINK6.0, and an introduction to the development of dynamic simulations all contribute to the reader's understanding of the concepts presented. The use of real data ensures that readers receive a realistic “feel” for handling and manipulating information, guaranteeing an understanding of the broad diversity of financial, demographic, and economic situations that occur. Topics include: information sharing in schools, organizing and manipulating data, system linkages, system dynamics, applied systems thinking, and structured improvisation. An excellent resource for all school administrators, especially those who plan budgets and need to report to school boards and their communities.
