Abstract: Despite the growing ubiquity of educational technologies in K-12 classrooms, many scholars have pointed out that impact of these technologies for all students has been uneven (Gomez et al., 2010). Some attribute this to a lack of cumulativity in educational research, in general. In this paper, we present design rationale as a mechanism to support designers building upon others' designs and assumptions of designs. Reporting on design-based research study to support teachers' data-informed instruction, we highlight our own process connecting our decisions and outcomes to both the conditions on the ground as well as the current research literature.
Keywords: data-informed instruction; practice-based design; educational technology; school data systems; design-based research.
