Has your ISD and/or local district signed up for the Michigan Data Hub (MiDataHub)? The MiDataHub is the result of five years of ISD leadership, collaboration, and effort supported by Kalamazoo RESA and the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators (MAISA). MiDataHub provides a platform that standardizes data for districts and allows us to tackle the common data issues that we all struggle with.

One of data challenges that we are currently working with MiDataHub to solve is the use of
roster and M-STEP assessment data to provide student growth percentages (SGPs)
for teacher evaluation. The other challenge is the development of
a common system to provide individual reading intervention plans (IRIPs)
to address the third grade reading law. In order to facilitate these needs,
it is extremely important for your district to establish a baseline year of data in MiDataHub for 2017-18 and to work to ensure that the flow of data is operating properly.
a year of historical roster information will allow for better calculation of SGP information. Additionally, historical roster information will be important in integrating with the Value Added Measure (VAM) tool (SAS-EVAAS) that the legislature funded for teacher evaluation.
In addition to these initiatives, MiDataHub has a wealth of other capabilities in use and in development. The integrations being developed will save your ISD and local districts time in managing the connections to the various systems you use. MiDataHub has developed extensions to support state reporting, can provide error checking of your data against CEPI’s validation rules, and help you improve your overall data quality. Integrations with state systems will allow for better access to assessment data, and will soon streamline the assignment of the all-important UIC for new students.
The use of MiDataHub is provided
of charge and with
full local control
of all data usage. Due to the many benefits available and the collaborative solutions that we can develop because of the standardized platform, we highly recommend that you sign up now. If the districts you serve are not listed on
