Texas Skyward User Group Conference TSDS studentGPS Dashboards Debbie Largent/Sandra Kratz TSDS StudentGPS Overview • • The Texas Student Data System is a project by TEA designed to provide educators with actionable, timely data to improve student performance while easing the burden of data collection on districts. The dashboards are built to help you to access real‐time data on your students—without requiring you to entire new data! The project has three goals: 1. Enhance performance management capabilities through the creation of academic dashboards and early warning systems that will, for example, help determine which students are at risk of dropping out and recommend intervention strategies; 2. Alleviate the data collection burden on school districts and improve data quality; and 3. Integrate key data into the Texas Education Agency (TEA) P–20 data warehouse, the Texas P–16 Public Education Information Resource (TPEIR), to better understand students’ preparedness to contribute to the 21st‐century workforce.

(Reference the slide for specific examples of data included in the dashboards.) • Student data will roll up into classroom, campus, and district data, which may be viewed based on your role. • You will only be able to see data for the students for whom you have academic responsibility. As teachers, this will include students in your class. Campus administrators will be able to see data for all students and teachers.
