Arkansas StudentGPS Dashboards - Opened to All Districts!
The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is pleased to announce all school districts will have access to the Arkansas StudentGPS Dashboards beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. StudentGPS was available to all eSchoolPlus districts in the 2013-2014 school year, and the majority of districts eligible to use the dashboards opted to take advantage of this no-cost tool for teachers and administrators. As a prerequisite, districts must use the eSchoolPlus student management system in order to use the dashboards. The dashboards require no additional data beyond what is already entered into eSchoolPlus.
Reviews from educators have been positive and focused on the ease-of-use and the breadth of daily-updated student data. The dashboards enforce FERPA privacy protections (student data is restricted to those with a legitimate educational interest) and operate under Single Sign On.
Examples of data in the dashboards include:
