Release of EVAAS District & School Reports
The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has contracted with SAS to provide value-added reports for your district and schools. District and school reporting was released on November 8 th and provides measures of students’ academic growth over time. This offering includes student projections as well as diagnostic information to help educators improve instruction.
 
Early next year, SAS EVAAS will also provide individual teacher value-added reports for districts that complete the opt-in process with MiDataHub and meet minimum criteria for sufficient data to run teacher-level reports. If your district would like to receive valuable teacher reporting for the 2019 release in addition to the standard reports, your district will need to provide 2018-19 student-teacher linkages prior to the December 6th deadline . For more information on submitting teacher linkages, follow the link below, https://www.midatahub.org/Core/Stories/Permalink/sas-evaas-for-k-12/
 
EVAAS account holders with access to school and district reports will receive an email once the reports are available. Additional information about EVAAS is available on the EVAAS login page for Michigan ( https://mi.sas.com/)
