This contract is still in process and the date of
operation is still to be known. Home Base will have
single-sign on in the Summer of 2013. Additionally,
when the Identity and Access Management contract is
signed, it will be easier to integrate a single sign-on
with outside 3rd party solutions.

Use Case

HomeBase Use Case #1
HB- 1
Title
Instruction and Assessment Data Dashboards
Description
Ability for teachers and other education professionals to use classroom, benchmark and state summative assessment data to inform individualized student
instruction decisions and other Key Performance Indicators. Data should be accessible through an integrated portal and presented in Dashboard format that allows
for deeper analysis through active hotspots and provide recommended resources to improve student instruction..
Narrative
Districts currently use instructional and assessment systems that are not integrated and cannot be viewed through a single portal.
An educator who wants to review a student’s performance and assign recommended instructional resources will access the HomeBase (IIS)
dashboard and view classroom and LEA assessment results as well as NC state testing results. The ability to drill down to the item level for further
analysis will enable the teacher to analyze the type of questions on which the student performed well and those on which (s)he struggled, enabling
the teacher to focus on test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills in addition to content.
Significant dependencies include the ability to pull the assessment data from multiple data sources into the IIS at the item and standard level for
analysis and to link the data with student demographic data in the Student Information System (SIS), and accountability data, discipline data to help
personalize instruction.

Content Owned by LEAs/Charter Schools or Teachers
Description LEAs/Charter Schools/Teachers will be able to load content in the resource bank and or share their resources (e.g.,
through the Home Base Resource Consortium). Curriculum/Instruction and Assessment Resources will be available
through one single login and the alignment tags will help to link the resources.
Narrative
Districts/Charter Schools/Teachers are creating their own content for use in the classroom. Some content is housed in a
content management system while others are housed in LMSs, on websites, in paper form, etc. In some cases the
resources may not be tagged in a consistent manner and may not be easily searchable. Curriculum/instruction and
assessment resources may not be in the same system. Gaining access to the resources may require one or more
passwords.

Title
Importing Licensed Content into Home Base
Description
The ability for LEAs/Charters to import licensed content into Home Base is a feature that allows districts to make
local decisions about content offerings and integrate that content into Home Base.
Narrative
Many districts have content that they will want to continue to use and/or will want to adopt new content to
enhance existing content in Home Base. Districts will be trained on how to import content that they own into the
resource bank of Home Base. However, for content that is licensed like Discovery Education, it may be more
efficient to contract directly with Pearson on getting the content in the Districts Resource Bank. Only teachers
in the district will be able to access the district licensed content.
Criteria
Description
Actor

Actions
1. Sign on Home Base
2. Search for Resources in the District Bank
3. Find licensed content as well as other

HB- 4
Learning Management System (LMS) Course Migration from Moodle, Blackboard, or Angel
Description Educators will be able to import courses from their existing Moodle, Blackboard, or Angel into Home Base.
Narrative
OpenClass offers many functionalities. For example, a user will be able to: single sign on from Home Base which will bring
in roster and provisioning information (available in October 2013); integrate with Google Apps for Education; post blogs,
share videos, images and links; create group work spaces for class projects and study groups; connect through chat or
Skype with students and teacher; and upload a variety of file types into courses, including HTML, PDF, Word, audio and
videos from YouTube.
Note: OpenClass is a free LMS and can be used immediately. However, it may be most prudent to wait until October 2013
to migrate course information, train select staff and then begin using in select schools in Spring 2013 and phase in
additional schools in at the start of the 2014-15 school year. Additional customizations of OpenClass will occur during the
2014-15 school year to enhance the collaboration tools and integration with the other instructional components of Home
Base.

Learning Management System (LMS) Course accessibility through Home Base
Some educators may choose to continue to use their existing LMS but want to connect to that LMS through Home

Narrative
Districts and charters who wish to connect their existing LMSs to Home Base can contact Pearson and
potentially contract for that service. They may also contact the Friday Institute for assistance with Single SignOn (SSO) connections between systems once the Identity Access Management (IAM) service is available
(anticipated in 2014).

Proprietary Reporting
HomeBase incorporates native functionality that allows for greater, easier and more accurate data analysis. From the data
dashboard, KPIs can be viewed that will allow for district/school comparison on academics/assessments, attendance,
discipline, etc. From the KPI dashboards subgroup, grade level, and teacher analysis can be completed and edited from the
same set of screens. In addition to the KPI reporting, HomeBase includes a number of out of the box reporting and a report
generator that can be used to create reports on a nearly infinite quantity.
Districts have been using a variety of proprietary programs and 3rd party applications to integrate with the old SIS
(NCWISE) to fill in functional gaps, generate external reporting, populate data dashboards, and analyze data. The
overhead to maintain and administer these tools vary from district to district but can be a substantial drain on resources.
With the migration to PowerSchool/HomeBase districts will now have customizable data dashboards that integrate
demographic as well as performance data that is reportable, and exportable to a built in Parent Portal.
