|Title:||The Forum Guide to Data Ethics|
|Description:||Each and every day, educators collect and use data about students, staff, and schools.
Some of these data originate in individual student and staff records that are confidential
or otherwise sensitive. And even those data that are a matter of public record, such as
aggregate school enrollment, need to be accessed, presented, and used in an ethically
responsible manner. While laws set the legal parameters that govern data use, ethics
establish fundamental principles of "right and wrong" that are critical to the appropriate
management and use of education data in the technology age. This guide reflects the
experience and judgment of experienced data managers; while there is no mandate to
follow these principles, the authors hope that the contents will prove a useful reference
to others in their work.
