My chair is called "Data-informed decision making for learning and development". My research focuses on (professional development in) data-informed decision making. I am a Fulbright scholarship recipient, which Iused to study data use in Louisiana. I am the past president of ICSEI (International Congress on School Effectiveness and Improvement). I am the Chair of the zone “Facilitating professional development and support for lecturers” of the Dutch National Acceleration Plan for Educational Innovation with IC. I am the global editor of the Journal of Professional Capital and Community and associate editor for Studies in Educational Evaluation. Ideveloped the data team® procedure, which has been used in different countries (e.g., The Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, USA), and has received the European Association for Practitioner Research on Improving Learning (EAPRIL) best research-practice award. I have published widely on the use of (assessment) data. I have received grants from NWO/NRO, the EU (Erasmus plus, Comenius), The Spencer Foundation, The Ministry of Education, STW (Sience and Technology fund, the Netherlands), and several school boards. I also have several international collaborations (e.g., with the University of Auckland, Antwerp University, and The University of California San Diego).

Research

My research focusses on the use of different types of data in organizations such as schools. I have studied the use of formative assessment (data-based decision making, assessment for learning, and diagnostic testing), the use of research in schools, and big data in education. How can we support schools in the use of data to improve education is one of my central questions. I am the initiator and project leader of the data team® procedure project. After a small scale pilot, the data team® procedure is currently being used by many schools in the Netherlands, England, Belgium, Sweden, and the USA. I have been involved in several studies regarding the use of data in different countries. One of these projects, for example, was an EU funded project into the use of data in the Netherlands, England, Germany, Lithuania and Poland.
