Practical Recommendations for Equity Analysis in Education


Alexander, K., Mulcahy-Dunn, A., & Cummiskey, C. (2017). Practical Recommendations for Equity Analysis in Education. Education Equity Research Initiative.


The Measurement and Metrics working group built off their landscape review to produce practical recommendations of best practice standards for measuring key equity dimensions. These recommendations are put forward as a means to consolidate current best practices in data collection in education and to chart a way forward together. They serve as a sounding board for future data collection and analysis as well as a starting point for honing our practice in areas not yet well measured. As these recommendations are integrated, we will make further refinements based on experience and will revisit our progress together annually. Our hope is that through more consistent metrics and analysis we can further both evidence and dialogue in pursuit of educational equity.
