i4see (Initiative for School Empowerment and Excellence)

The Initiative for School Empowerment and Excellence (i4see) is a student level data collection that will eliminate many of the aggregate school and district reports. i4see will reduce the burden on districts, improve the quality of data and enable important analysis such as gains based analysis of assessments and the ability to help reduce the drop-out rate.

The Initiative for School Empowerment and Excellence (i4see) has changed the way the department collects and leverages student and school data. Central to the effort is an overarching principle that we should not only collect data for reporting needs, but that we should add value to the data being collected and provide information back to schools to empower teachers, administrators, policy makers, and parents to increase student achievement - enabling schools to follow every child and to analyze groups of students over time.

Administrators and teachers with have easy access to valuable data, helping improve the education for every child. The assignment of a state assigned student identifier (SASID) is the first deliverable of this initiative.

All student-level data collections must be submitted electronically, paper submissions will not be accepted. All submissions should be comma separated data files. It is important that your file does NOT contain header records.
