Abstract: This brief paper is based on the pilot study that examined PreK-12 educators’ perceived data literacy skills and how their program of study, particularly their technology courses prepared them to use data. A survey was employed to collect both quantitative and qualitative data from a purposeful sample of teachers. Preliminary findings indicate that while most teachers reported they possess the basic data literacy requirements, and use different types of technology to collect and organize data, there is still need for teachers to develop advanced data literacy skills through professional development and practice
