How bad data affects education?


Cross-jurisdictional matching remains a challenge

87 percent of educators think that their colleges and universities will not be able to stay competitive without integrating their data across departments in the next five years.

Inaccurate matches

States and educational institutions miss a significant number of matches during record linkage projects.

Departmental silos

Data residing across disparate sources reduces inter-departmental visibility across the entire organization.

Obsolete IT infrastructure

Lack of systems that can aggregate and prepare data in the required shape without compromising student privacy.

Inefficient stakeholder reporting

Data silos and absence of data standards can affect proper communication to private and public stakeholders.

Wasted resources

Inaccurate data leads to miscalculation of fill rates in various educational sections, resulting in wasted resources.

Poor program evaluation

Incomplete, missing, and duplicate records prevents educators from evaluating the effectiveness of assessments and education programs.
