VPS has been far more focused on integrating data systems since becoming part of the Digital Promise Assessment Data Interoperability Challenge Collaborative (ADICC). We have met bi-weekly in our district to move this project forward. Regular check-ins with colleagues from other ADICC districts have kept us motivated and have given us thought partners. Without that network, this work could not have advanced from a vague hope to concrete actions.
Our biggest achievement since beginning this challenge was getting our ODS up and mapping into it integrations for three data providers. This step was huge for us, but we still have a lot of work ahead to integrate all the different tools in use. Our weLearn 1:1 initiative has ensured that all students have access to the tools they need to own the time, pace, path and place of their learning. A side effect of that initiative, however, has been an enormous influx of data. Eventually, we hope to map as many of those tools into our ODS as practical.
