As our technology gets more precise, our need to be precise increases twofold. In education, there are so many variables that 90% of a group isn’t good enough when the ability to be 97% exists.
In fact, a rule of technology is, if a more advanced program exists and you aren’t using it, then your system is outdated.
Education is one of the most important, if not the most important industry we have, because it represents the future. Data-driven decisions are made using student assessment data, along with other relevant data to plan out education strategies.

Currently being used is the SLDS, which stands for Statewide Longitudinal Data System. This software is used to help teachers, schools and districts plan out the best learning strategies for said student.
The SLDS can help close the educational achievement gap, helping identify a student’s academic strengths and weaknesses, as well as any attendance issues.
Linkage to all vital records is imperative; currently Data Ladder’s involvement at the state level using DataMatch has exceeded the national level. The national level using SLDS only is 90%. The state level using DataMatch along with SLDS is over 97%! Learn more in our education case study.
This can be extremely help for minorities who remain educationally underrepresented.
The importance of data matching cannot be overlooked. Please tune in to our upcoming free webinar! It is education at your fingertips and brought to you virtually by Data Ladder.
