• Smarter Analytics

    Smarter data

    Smarter Analytics allows teachers and administrators access to deeper level Smarter score information. Using the system, teachers have the ability to determine each student’s understanding of the Smarter claims and targets and how they align to the Delaware standards.

    Smarter Analytics is accessible to Delaware educators through the state’s IMS system. Teachers can sort the assessment data provided based on their own needs. Smarter Analytics offers prepared reports but also gives teachers the ability to create their own. Users can then save and share reports for use in PLCs, school-level planning, grade-level planning and more.

    The system can be accessed 24/7 and allows reports to be exported in Excel and as PDFs. Scores for multiple other standards-based assessments are available in this system as well, providing a more-comprehensive look at student assessment scores and demonstrating the importance of an entire assessment system over any one test to help guide instruction. Additionally, Smarter Analytics also links with eSchoolPLUS and the EdInsight Dashboard for seamless communication of information across different data platforms.
