MI School Data

  • Flexible & SimpleFlexible & Simple

    MI School Data is flexible and simple to use. It offers handy dashboards with key education metrics, or you can build your own reports to answer questions like:

    • How do my school's 3rd grade reading scores compare to overall state scores?
    • Are our high school graduates prepared for college?
    • Which educational programs and policies make a difference in student success?
    • Is my school on sound financial footing?
    • Do our community college students do well after transferring to a 4-year college?
  • Safe + SecureSafe & SecureData are collected using unique identification coding that enables more useful analysis than aggregate counts, while protecting student privacy. The site uses security protocols and cell suppression, meaning that if report settings result in very small or large numbers that could identify an individual, the data are not displayed. Schools and colleges can grant secure rights to those in their employ who need access to more reports and more detailed reports in order to tailor instruction and/or evaluate programs. (For more details, see How CEPI Protects Education Data).
  • Longitudinal DataLongitudinal DataMI School Data is a product of Michigan's Statewide Longitudinal Data System (MSLDS). This system lets us connect data in powerful ways: grade to grade, school to school, level to level. It lets us connect seemingly disparate data like school finance, test scores, teacher preparation, gender and race, courses and grades, graduation rates, college enrollment, school lunch eligibility, career and tech programs, special education and gifted programs. These connections span from early childhood into the workforce and help ensure we're meeting the needs of all Michigan students. And they tell us which policies and programs work.
  • Accountability & TransparencyAccountability & TransparencyMI School Data supports Michigan's government standards of accountability - the citizen's right to know if and how our schools are meeting the educational needs of our children, and transparency - information that is easy to access and easy to understand. Most importantly, by helping us understand where to focus our efforts, MI School Data supports our shared goal of every Michigan student being college or career ready.
