Use the state’s new testing dashboard for public schools

By September 6, 2022 News

At last week’s State Board of Education (SBE) meeting, Superintendent Catherine Truitt referenced a new dashboard that disaggregates test data. It’s a great resource for educators and researchers, and features all sorts of ways to search for, and filter, proficiency data.

Find that tool from the Department of Public Instruction here.

The dashboard offers multiple ways to filter data

For instance, users can search by individual school (public charter or district public school), county, region, or school district. In addition, the dashboard displays composite data as well as data for individual subjects and grades–as well as student sub-groups. Users can also filter proficiency data by two standards: the more rigorous CCR (College and Career Readiness) standard as well as the GLP (Grade Level Proficiency) standard.

The dashboard features data from 2016-17 through the 2021-22 results released at last week’s SBE meeting. Data from the 2019-20 school year are not included, because of the pandemic’s impact on testing that year.
