Smithville R-II will use Matrix to help with data analysis and dashboards

7-24-2012
SMITHVILLE, Mo. -- The Smithville R-II School District has chosen to use Matrix as its data warehouse and analysis system because of the flexibility and scale-ability the system offers. Matrix allows for districts to view and analyze various amounts of student data in one common dashboard, and allows the district access to thousands of customizable reports at the click of a button.

With Matrix, Smithville will not only be able to analyze district-wide and grade levels assessments, including MAP and EOC's, Explore, Plan, AIMSweb, Tests of Cognitive Skill and Performance Theories, it will also allow teachers to enter grades into a custom 6+1 Traits gradebook for writing assessments and immediately run analysis after grades are entered into the system.

AllofE will work with the Smithville School District to clean up, organize and import test data as the district receives it. Then District-level and building-level administrators and staff will be able to see the appropriate assessment analyses for that audience.

Smithville is focused on becoming a leader in data analysis and using data to improve student performance on key assessments, which is why it chose to switch to Matrix from its previous data system. In partnership wtih AllofE, Smithville will get complete control over the data available to the district. 

Smithville is an extremely high-performing district in Missouri and it will focus on increasing that success through the use of Matrix. The implementation will launch in time for the 2012-2013 school year to start.
