A survey of superintendents, supervisors, principals and teachers attending the ASCD Annual Conference in San Francisco, Calif., indicated that most lack the data and instructional tools to deliver effective learning.

The informal survey, conducted by Lexia Learning Systems, Inc.®, polled more than 200 education professionals at the ASCD Conference. Attendees were asked about their school or district’s ability to gather and use data to provide targeted, differentiated learning.

One out of four educators indicated that it is too difficult for teachers to obtain the data they need to affect classroom instruction, while more than a third feel they spend too much time testing. In addition, less than one-third of teachers felt they had the resources to offer targeted instruction, and even fewer (25 percent) believed their students receive enough differentiated instruction.
