What is Data Literacy?



Looking at a piece or set of digital data is meaningless if there is no understanding of how it is displayed. This Special Report not only discusses how digital displays are generally created to convey data, but also covers a more basic ability, Education Data Literacy.

Training in schools often does not include this basic definition of data literacy, nor the break-down of the logic basics that go into evaluation of any data. What you need to be literate about is a function of instructional policy, but how you’re literate about it has to do with being able to see errors and positives in the data points themselves.
