Performance Indicator Analytics - Frequently Asked Questions

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) aligns agency goals with research-based performance indicators that lead to student success. Data and analytics have been prepared to help school districts identify opportunities to improve equity between student groups and learn from each other.

WHAT: Most performance indicator analytics use the district’s Comprehensive Education Data and Research System (CEDARS) submissions except for the following:

WHERE: The analytics can be accessed on the OSPI Data and Analytics web page*. Additional data and reports that support or complement the Performance Indicator Analytics are:

  • Raw data: To download raw data from which the Tableau analytics are built, follow these instructions.
  • Student level data: To access a student level data file for your district and schools that roll up into the Tableau analytics, follow these instructions for download from the EDS Washington Assessment Management System (WAMS).
  • Other data to support further analysis are also available in the OSPI State Report Card and Data Download files.

WHY: The data and visualizations in the analytics…

  • help districts understand their equity position within the state and comparison to other districts
  • allow for comparisons across student groups to identify disproportionality
  • provide a view to easily study performance over time
  • help identify district peers to learn from

HOW and WHO: If you have questions about the data or the analytics, here are some suggestions.

  • Each performance indicator analytic has an “Overview” tab. Check the notes, definition, and rules to better understand the data and how they were prepared.
  • Check with your district CEDARS administrator to confirm the data submitted for your district.
