Developed and presented by the Greater Boston District and School Assistance Center, this workshop is designed to support your continuous efforts to effectively use data to improve student learning and achievement. The workshop will provide a basic overview, in presentation format, of the following data tools offered by DESE:
School & District Profiles and Quick Statewide Reports – The profiles provide a wealth of information, publicly available, and easy to download into Excel.
District Analysis and Review Tool - The DART offers a snapshot of district and school performance, allowing users to easily track select data elements over time, and make sound, meaningful comparisons to the state or to "comparable" organizations.
Education Data Warehouse 3.0 – DESE released a new version of the EDW in summer 2011 that is more user-friendly and much faster. Presenters will review the basic interface and any changes that have been made.
Early Warning Indicator Index - The Early Warning Indicator Index (EWII) assigns students who were enrolled in eighth grade one of five risk levels (Very High Risk, High Risk, Borderline, At Risk, or Low Risk) based on a variety of data. This information is made available to districts to assist local staff in identifying and supporting students in grade 9 who may be at risk of not graduating on time from high school.
District Data Team Toolkit – The District Data Team Toolkit (DDTT) is a set of tools and resources available to districts as they support effective data and inquiry practice.
Cost: NO COST. Provided by the Greater Boston District and School Assistance Center.
