What is WISEdash?
WISEdash is a data portal that uses "dashboards," or visual collections of graphs and tables, to provide multi-year education data about Wisconsin schools.  As a public reporting tool, WISEdash is used by districts, schools, parents, researchers, media, and other community members to view data published by DPI. See the WISEdash Public Portal press release here.
What's in WISEdash?
Each year, all Wisconsin school districts collect information about their students, staff, and courses based on federal and state requirements. These data sets are submitted to the Department of Public Instruction where they're stored and linked in a data warehouse. WISEdash gives you an interactive way to select and filter Wisconsin school data from the 2005-06 school year forward. Data are required to be published by the Department of Public Instruction, and are redacted to protect student privacy. Additional historical datasets from 1995 can be downloaded.

Where is WINSS?

Since fall 2000, the Data Analysis section of Wisconsin Information Network for Successful Schools (WINSS) has been an important data resource used by education stakeholders to help all students meet and exceed expectations. A wide variety of data about academic performance, attendance and behavior, staff and other school resources, and student demographics has been provided through WINSS Data Analysis tools.

In Fall 2013, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) implemented a new and updated public data analysis portal called the WISEdash Public Portal, or Wisconsin Information System for Education Data Data Dashboard. At that time, WISEdash began to phase out WINSS Data Analysis (red box) with the migration of more recent years of data about WSAS, ACT, Advanced Placement Program ® Exams, Attendance, and Demographics from WINSS Data Analysis to WISEdash. The plan is to migrate all WINSS data topics to WISEdash over time.

Over time, the topics on WINSS will be migrated into the new WISEdash Public Portal. A topic will be migrated only after school district staff have worked with the data on their side and give suggestions for the best way to show it on public dashboards.
