A new year’s worth of North Dakota school performance and accountability information has been integrated into the state’s “education dashboard” website.
The dashboard allows North Dakotans to look up an assortment of information by school and district, as well as at the state level. For example, ND State Assessment results in mathematics, science and English are available, as are results for the ACT college entrance exam, which is taken in high school.
The dashboard has information about school enrollment, demographics, graduation rates and absenteeism; improvements in student assessment results; and the results of engagement surveys, which measure levels of student enthusiasm about their education.
ND Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler said the information is gathered, reviewed and later vetted again by the school districts themselves before it becomes part of the dashboard. The new information is from the 2018-19 school year.
