Data, data everywhere and none of it to drink

The lament in the rhyme of the Ancient Mariner has become the reality of K-12 leaders.

The number of data sources schools manage in isolation seriously limits the usefulness of the data contained within. Building a whole-of-student view, is the opportunity.

The list below shows only some common data sources found across many K-12 schools.

All sources collect various important data points about students, most have a specific format and all have various data dimensions.

Literatu Learning Ledger knows about these data sources and the important data granularity within.

Imagine having a unified view of achievement for any student or cohort across any of these data sources.

*Stand Alone means the data is not intentionally compatible with other data but rather unique in it’s own context.
