This Web site has been created to help schools analyze their state assessment data and guide them in making data-based instructional decisions that would support improved performance for all students. Talented educators across the state have contributed to the resources of this site. The site development was originally funded as part of a research grant from the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI). When the OERI monies were expended, the Maryland State Department of Education provided funding for maintenance and further development.
While this site is under development, we appreciate your input on what would add value to the site. Please send your suggestions to project director Lani Hall Seikaly (Bio).
