Reading Between the Lines - What Real Data Can Tell Us About Student Achievement

White Paper

Rhode Island and Race to the Top

Rhode Island was also one of 40 states that applied for and 1 of 12 that received federal Race to the Top funds. In doing so, the state had to reshape how they collect data about teacher evaluation and student achievement. Some of those changes have been for good, and others have proven challenging.

In this white paper, you'll see how West Warwick School District in Rhode Island utilized Aspen Student Information System (SIS) and Aspen Instructional Management System (IMS) in order to store, collect, and manage complicated data in one easy to use system. Aspen helped West Warwick tell the true story of their school and demonstrate measurable student growth based on Race to the Top funds.
