What is My Data Dashboard?

ISBE has launched a new tool called My Data Dashboard, accessible via MyIRC, that replaces Ed360. ISBE conducted a survey and focus groups to gather feedback about Ed360. My Data Dashboard provides the same features with faster loading times and a better user experience. Stay tuned for more changes to make your academic, educator, and financial data more useful for continuous improvement.

My Data Dashboard is an optional service provided by ISBE. My Data Dashboard replaces Ed360, which has been available since 2018.

The goal of My Data Dashboard is to provide administrators and teachers -- detailed data related to critical performance metrics to allow for data driven decision making and a deeper understanding of how data can be used within the State, districts, schools and classrooms.​

For example, District Superintendent positions in EIS are automatically assigned a default My Data Dashboard role of District Administrator.

Examples of My Data Dashboard Default Role Assignments:

EIS Position Default My Data Dashboard Level
Assistant/Associate District Superintendent District Administrator (districtwide access)
Principal School Administrator (schoolwide access)
Assistant Principal School Administrator (schoolwide access)

 My Data Dashboard Data Flow & Security

Throughout the year, Illinois school districts submit data to many ISBE data collections. The collections relevant to My Data Dashboard are EIS, ELIS, SIS, EPS, I-Star, 5 Essentials, AFR, EBF, eGMS, FRIS, and District Budgets. The ISBE data warehouse is updated nightly with any new data submissions. The My Data Dashboard is built from the information available in the ISBE data warehouse. Role based secure access to My Data Dashboard protects privacy while ensuring access to operational data for administrators and educators. 

Other opt-in services like NWEA Map and Renaissance Star require district permission before they can be viewed on the My Data Dashboard. 

Important things to know about My Data Dashboard security:

  • My Data Dashboard data is encrypted "at-rest" (while sitting in the ISBE data warehouse) and while "in-transit" (when sent over the internet).
  • Penetration testing is performed by the Illinois Department of Information Technology (DoIT). ISBE reviews the findings and applies security measures to mitigate security risks.
  • MyIRC and My Data Dashboard uses your district managed G-Suite or Office 365 credentials to sign-in.
  • Educators are responsible for safeguarding their G-Suite or Office 365 credentials.
  • The ISBE Legal Team has reviewed My Data Dashboard for FERPA compliance. Educators must have an academic need to see student data in My Data Dashboard.

 My Data Dashboard History & Resources

  • In early 2021, ISBE conducted a series of focus groups with a diverse group of stakeholders to evaluate the use of Ed360. These efforts, and ongoing consultation with the field, will help the new My Data Dashboard develop into a tool that is of maximum usefulness for administrators and teachers. Ed360 started in 2016 with the desire to create a tool that allowed users more real-time, user-friendly access to the data collected by the State. The history of Ed360 informs the future of My Data Dashboard.

  • Interim Assessments:
    • NWEA MAP & documents:PDF Document​ A district must complete and submit the NWEA MAP Permission to Release Data before MAP data flows into My Data Dashboard. The Post Opt In Instructions document outlines the current auto upload process to display MAP data in My Data Dashboard.
    • Renaissance Star Instructions:PDF Document After a District Administrator opts in to both My Data Dashboard and the Renaissance Star opt in service, these Post Opt In Instructions offer further guidance to ensure Star data flows into My Data Dashboard.​​
