Usage is up in third year of EdInsight Dashboard

Written on: September 8th, 2014 in Metrics

EdInsight Dashboard usage is up at the beginning of its third school year statistics show. For the last three weeks users have logged into EdInsight Dashboard over 2,220 unique times. Perhaps it is the new Reports option that allows teachers to run seven ad-hoc reports for the very first time. Or it might be the usefulness of prior year metrics which gives insight to a teacher on how a student ended the school year last year, regardless of building. Or it might be the availability to view how many students have 504 plans or an IEP. Or it might be how easy it is to view student data in a user-friendly format. No matter what the reason, one thing is for sure, word is catching on that EdInsight is a useful tool and provides valuable and actionable data to Delaware public and charter school end-users.
