Over the past 12 months, we have witnessed a shift in the education industry’s use of data as a driver of improvement, not just a measure of results.
White Plains, NY, and Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
eScholar®, a leader in the application of data to personalize education, announced its involvement at the 26th Annual Management Information Systems (MIS) Conference in Washington, D.C. eScholar representatives will participate in presentations with eScholar clients and partners. Its suite of education data offerings will be subject matter for many discussions. The conference will be held February 13 – 15 at the historic Mayflower Renaissance Hotel.
The MIS Conference is sponsored by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the federal agency responsible for collecting and analyzing education data. The conference brings together hundreds of officials from both local and state education agencies. Throughout the course of three days, over 100 presentations and workshops will be given, covering data topics such as instructional use, privacy, and more. The conference takes place immediately after the two-day meeting for members of the National Forum on Education Statistics.
This year’s conference theme, Launching Data Initiatives, reflects eScholar’s mission of going beyond the standards of managing education data by putting data to action. As district and state education agencies look to technology and data applications to personalize education, eScholar’s suite of products, including the eScholar Complete Data Warehouse® and eScholar myTrack®, have been at the forefront. As a vendor for numerous district and state education agencies, eScholar will be supporting several of its clients and partners in conference sessions, including:
