TSDL: Teacher Student Data Link Project
Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and conducted by the Center for Educational
Leadership and Technology (CELT) with guidance and dissemination support from the Data Quality Campaign (DQC)

Use and Purpose of Teacher-Student Data Link

The teacher-student data link has both near- and long-term uses and works to leverage emerging teaching practices and technologies. The figure shows many of the purposes a robust TSDL can have; for example, educators can use it to identify best practices and support accountability growth models based on longitudinal data that link student outcomes to multiple teachers, programs, and schools over time.
