P20W Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS)
The P20W SLDS will construct a system and a set of practices that will provide learner information to the State of Wyoming in the most sustainable, cost-effective way that still addresses the enterprise and complex nature of the problems and questions being raised by the stakeholders. The P20W SLDS will establish data cohesion and integration across multiple agency systems. It must collect and store high-quality data and provide accurate information on how individual students, or aggregates of students, are doing over time, from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and into postsecondary education and the workforce. These data, known as longitudinal data, can give policymakers and educators the type of information they need to assess the effects of their reform policies and program efforts, and adjust policies and practices to improve student achievement.
