Proficiency Analysis - School Data Direct
There are online resources that can assist in proficiency
analysis. For example, School Data Direct (an online service of the State Education Data Center) is a
free website that provides many resources. Here's an
introduction to the site:
The State Education Data Center (SEDC) is a new service of the Council of Chief State School Officers, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as part of the Council's National Education Data Partnership. The SEDC will position itself as a leading voice on public education data and will focus on two work strands: (1) serving as a national advocacy leader for quality education data collection, standards, and use; and (2) serving as the nation's provider of a free, easy-to-use website featuring state education data and analytic tools.
