An education ecosystem with data interoperability at its foundation is well-positioned to tackle both today’s challenges and the unknown challenges of tomorrow. Data interoperability seamlessly connects and integrates data sources and provides a complete view of all data. Without it, educators would be ill-equipped to offer the solutions our school district partners urgently require.
Educational data is only valuable insofar as it produces meaningful insights. Unfortunately, scattered, dis-integrated data is a significant problem for education agencies across the country. When a district’s data is drawn together in a Hoonuit-powered interoperable ecosystem, educators can run descriptive and predictive analyses across their entire data library. Now they are positioned to view the results as visualizations and make better decisions and drive better student outcomes.
Data interoperability also opens doors toward greater student equity. Without question, education is the cornerstone to ending systemic inequities and data interoperability is a key part of that work. Data tells a story. With the analysis of data, equity and achievement gaps can be identified. In order to make informed decisions and drive effective action plans, you need information.
Data interoperability enables both comprehensive longitudinal reporting critical to the examination of data to identify equity and achievement gaps, as well as predictive analytics which allows educators to react faster and apply intervention or other strategies for improvement. When educators are given the tools to analyze data on student performance and behavior, inequities come into sharper focus and can be addressed head on.
