The Arkansas studentGPS Dashboards were designed with the help of teachers, campus, district, and regional leaders, and educational cooperatives across Arkansas. The Arkansas studentGPS Dashboards will allow educators to utilize education data in practical and powerful ways and enable data-driven decision making. The goal of the system is to develop academic dashboards with early warning systems that will help teachers and administrators ensure every student reaches his/her potential.
The dashboards will aggregate data from existing sources to show a comprehensive view of each student (including items such as student demographic information, schedule, attendance, assessment data, grades, and discipline) as well as roll-up views of the data for classrooms, schools and districts. The dashboards will serve as a valuable instructional tool at the classroom, building, and district levels and there is no cost to the district to take advantage of the dashboards.
The Arkansas studentGPS Dashboards will be available to school districts that will be using the eSchoolPlus student management system during the 2013-2014 school year (Phase 1-3 Districts). All remaining districts will have access to the dashboards in the 2014-2015 school year.
