Multiple Sources: Assessments are stored on different sites (State, College Board, Map, iReady, Star) with varying score interpretation guidelines.
Searching for Trends: Identifying correlations and trends when looking at separate data table assessments can be challenging.
Constantly Changing: Program statuses change over time (such as Special Ed and ELL). It can become difficult to keep up with the most recent information.
Manual Processes: Teachers must walk down to the office to pull a student’s file to see their assessment history.
Time and Effort: Extra manpower and time needed to extract and compile the necessary information from different sources - deciding which data fields to keep and which to exclude.
Quickly Outdated: Timely distribution of finalized compiled data to school staff is difficult for IT/Data Managers to keep up with.
Unique Needs: The Superintendent, Principal, Curriculum Director, Interventionist, and Teachers may want the same data presented in different ways.
