Teacher. Classroom facilitator. Database analyst? This new role for educators is a direct outcome of the data-driven classroom and the quest for accountability. While teachers may understand the need to collect the information, they resent inputting the same data over and over again in every learning management system, educational application, and state and federal accountability report. More important, the data entry can seem pointless when the outcomes aren’t applicable to the students. In an edWebinar for edWeb, Dr. Tracy Weeks, executive director for SETDA, and her co-presenters discussed how implementing data interoperability standards can turn data from a daily chore into a productive tool that can provide educators with a more complete picture of the student, class, school, or district.
In this edWebinar, learn how state leaders are tackling data interoperability in their states with the emergence of data standards for student information, assessment, digital content, and other educational applications.
