Using Aspen SIS to Successfully Navigate New Educational Waters

White Paper

Can School Districts Use Their Own Data to Manage Effectiveness?

With the advent of the Obama Administration’s Race to the Top grant, district administrators and educators across the country have witnessed a dramatic change in how educators are evaluated. Policy, legislation, and public sentiment have placed tremendous pressures on local districts to determine teacher effectiveness ratings, including measures such as observable practice, value added measures (VAM), and student achievement levels.

With help from Follett and Aspen Student Information System (SIS) schools and districts are able to make the necessary connections between Common Core-aligned curriculum, student schedules, and student performance on distract-created assessments in order to conquer the data challenge. In this whitepaper, you'll learn how Aspen allowed a diverse array of educational organizations to have a single, comprehensive resource for accessing and managing data.
