The Education Data Partnership announced Thursday that its new interactive site now allows users to compare districts or schools based on demographic, performance and financial data.
Ed-Data is the only website where users can easily manipulate California Department of Education data to make such comparisons. Users can select which data elements they see and export those results to Excel.
The comparisons function has more features than the comparisons on the old Ed-Data site. It allows users to:
- Select a specific year for comparisons and toggle between years as desired;
- Select the data elements to be included in the comparison results from a list of all fields or by data category, such as student demographic, performance and finance data;
