i4see (Initiative for School Empowerment and Excellence)

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

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 have easy access to valuable data, helping improve the education for every child. The assignment of a state assigned student identifier (SASID) was 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.
