Upcoming Webinar
MiDataHub Webinar - Return to Learn, MICIP Readiness, and more!
One of the requirements of the Return to Learn legislation approved this summer is for certain benchmark assessments to be delivered to students, reported through MiDataHub, aggregated, and then provided to CEPI and MDE for reporting to the governor and legislature. All districts will need to report on their benchmark assessments, and most will need to do so via MiDataHub. In this webinar, we will be walking through the requirements, which assessments must be reported via MiDataHub, and how the reporting and aggregation process will work. We will briefly address which scenarios will not be reported via MiDataHub, and more information will be coming directly from CEPI and MDE with details of that process. In addition to the benchmark assessment piece, we will also be touching on the MICIP Readiness check process and other MiDataHub functionality.  

When: The webinar will be Wednesday, January 13th from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

SSO Self Service Federation Functionality
There is new functionality recently deployed in the MiDataHub cockpit that will streamline the process of completing the SSO Federation with MIDataHub. Essentially we wanted to create a system where the request for a federation is made directly in the MiDataHub cockpit. The new functionality is located on the main screen when logging into the MiDataHub Cockpit under a tab called “Manage SSO”.
NOTE: Only a user authorized as a technical contact will have access to this section.
After clicking the Manage SSO button, you will be presented with the SSO Management request screen, where you will enter key pieces of information regarding your district, the district name to display for the federation, Directory Type (ADFS, Google, O365), metadata URL, and contact information. Upon completing the submission of the requested data on this page an admin on the MiDataHub team will approve your request.

Our intent with this functionality is to expedite the request time for your SSO Federation request.

MICIP Platform January 4th Launch
On January 4th the MICIP Platform is scheduled to go live statewide. It is important to know this is the day the system goes online but that not all districts will have access that day. On the morning of the 4th, MDE will begin the creation of district accounts and will notify the district MICIP System admin when their account is created. It will likely take a few days for all of the account setups to be completed. 

Please watch for a notification from MDE that your MICIP System Administrator can access the system that week. The System Admin can then start configuring MICIP for the district and adding local users. Only districts who have signed the MICIP Agreement in the MiDataHub Cockpit will get access.
Vendor Corner
The Vendor Corner will appear most weeks to highlight additions and changes to applications integrated with MiDataHub.
