Using student data for district, school, and classroom improvement planning can be very helpful when it is used correctly and with the necessary security and privacy practices in place. Although data can be used to facilitate change and improvement, there is a need to balance the usefulness of this data with the privacy of the students who the data is about.

The Data Quality Dashboard is an interactive tool designed to provide feedback to districts on the accuracy of their submitted data. While use of the Data Quality Dashboard is optional, it can be an extremely helpful tool to ease data collections. The goal of the Dashboard is to empower districts to take the quality of their data into their own hands by checking submitted data against a series of audits. The Dashboard will provide pathways for districts to correct any and all potential errors without needing to call ISBE.
