State education officials are unveiling a new tool to help teachers keep track of student performance.
The Education Insight system, funded with part of the state’s $119 million federal Race to the Top grant, is to be unveiled next Wednesday, Aug. 29. The statewide launch is Sept. 4.
The system includes the development of web-based “dashboards” that provide educators access to information on students to help manage academic performance.
Among other things, the system can help teachers review information on their incoming classes and identify students at risk and plan interventions.
The system is provided free of charge to all school districts and charter schools.
