Using Data to Alter Instructional Practice: The Mediating Role of Coaches and Professional Learning Communities

by Julie A. Marsh, Melanie Bertrand & Alice Huguet
Drawing on data collected in six middle schools, this article finds that coaches and professional learning communities (PLCs) played an important role in mediating teachers’ responses to data. We find that dialogue and the dynamic relationship between two types of expertise may help explain the ways in which PLCs and coaches facilitated deeper-level changes in pedagogy, and that school leadership and district-level context shaped the possibility for such changes.
