Website Updates
Over the last few weeks there has been a focus from the MiDataHub team and its partners reviewing and updating the MiDataHub website,

Major updates have been made throughout the entire site in areas including:
  • support,
  • documentation,
  • and the Product Catalog 

Some of the major updates in the Product Catalog were based on feedback from the field and our partnering vendors. Supporting materials, contact information, and information on configuring integrations have been overhauled. If you review the Product Catalog pages and see any needed updates, please let us know by sending an email to support@midatahub.org . Some upcoming additions to our Product Catalog will be pages for state services such as the UIC services API, and the portable student record service, known as the “Snack-Pack”.

Please keep an eye on the announcement of these pages in the upcoming weekly newsletter.
EVAAS
The team at SAS EVAAS asked us to share the message on their upcoming, on-site trainings throughout the state:

Did you know that EVAAS growth reports are free to schools across Michigan?
It’s true, and we’re here to help you make the most of them with in-person training opportunities.
 
The Michigan Department of Education contracted EVAAS to provide districts and public school academies with reports to supplement other reporting tools provided by the state. 
 
Because K-12 educators are some of the busiest people around, we’ve planned a series of training events across the state that can fit into nearly anyone’s schedule. 

Review this document ( https://mi.sas.com/support/Michigan-Regional-Training-Description-Choose-Adventure.pdf ) to see more information about these exciting training opportunities to help educators use data behind the impact of instruction on student outcomes. 
 
Please pass this invitation along to your school administrators and instructional leaders because many EVAAS reports inform their efforts in school improvement, teacher development, and student support.
