This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

Capstone Roundtable — Developing a Methodological Toolbox for Data Analysts at the Syracuse City School District Limited seats remain
Limited Capacity filling up

The Syracuse City School District is increasingly using data to inform policy. While the data needed is often descriptive in nature, more complex methodologies are occasionally needed for certain policy decisions. These analyses require more time and are more difficult to communicate than standard analyses.
This roundtable discussion will cover our process for developing a set of tools to help our data team complete rigorous analyses and communicate results. This will involve sharing details of our “toolbox,” with a focus on our tool for communicating results. Finally, we will end with a table discussion of what tools, processes, and resources each of our organizations uses for research projects.
