This study aimed  at examining  innovative  approaches to data  management in teacher  education  to enhance  student  learning outcomes  where a survey design was employed,  and self-structured questionnaires  were used for data collection.  The  questionnaire  was  duly  validated  by  three  experts.  The sample   size  consisted   of  87   lecturers  from  four  tertiary  institutions  in Anambra  state.  The study  addressed  four research  questions  and  two null hypotheses  related  to the current practices, challenges,  and  implementation levels  of  various  data  management  strategies.  Findings  revealed  varying levels  of  implementation  for  approaches  such  as  utilizing  student   data, ongoing   training   for  teachers,   involving   parents   and   the   community, providing   targeted   assistance,   and   recognizing  student   diversity.  These findings provide  valuable  insights for educators  and  institutions to enhance pedagogical practices through effective data management. The study highlighted   the   importance   of  leveraging   data   to   inform   instructional decisions,   personalized  learning  experiences,   and   fostering  an   inclusive learning  environment.   Future  researches   should  focus  on  the  long-term impact of these approaches on student outcomes  and explore ways to refine and expand  their implementation.
