SSID - Ohio will expand upon the existing Statewide Student Identifier (SSID) system to include higher-education students, enabling Ohio’s SLDS to meet all America COMPETES Act elements and meaningfully increase the breadth of data available though the system. This work will provide tremendous benefits to primary and secondary education as well as higher education. Analyses will be performed that identify course-taking patterns that support college readiness. Higher education will be better able to identify criteria that lead to college success – thereby allowing more effective outreach and enrollment strategies to reach more students. These strategies will contribute to Ohio's goal to increase higher education enrollment by 230,000 by 2017.
Data Tools - The existing data tools the state provides, including the Ohio Success website and D3A2, will be analyzed to determine where redundant functionality exists. Consolidation will follow, where applicable, to reduce confusion and improve user experience.
Web Portals - To increase the usability of Ohio’s available data tools, the State will simplify data access by developing a series of web portals, with single sign-on capabilities, designed for specific constituent groups.
IIS – the Instructional Improvement System (IIS) - The various data tools and system functionality along with access to the SLDS will be for access through web portals. Major components of an IIS include:
• Online access to electronic curriculum, resources and tools aligned to the revised standards
• Curriculum customization for differentiated instruction
• Online formative assessments
• Data-analysis capabilities including early-warning indicators for teachers, administrators, parents, and students
Teacher Student Data Link (TSDL) - Develop ODE Enhanced Teacher-Student Linkage System to be used for tracking student-teacher linkages.
