Kindergarten through workforce integration and reporting framework
Pass the test
State education departments are finding that evaluating programs for the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) program and other stakeholders—from parents to state legislators—requires extensive data collection and reporting, which existing IT applications often can't handle. In addition, they must integrate this student information, from kindergarten through to the workforce, with other state entities. The kindergarten through workforce integration and reporting framework from IBM is a proven solution designed to help you meet this challenge.
Use data to show and tell
As states recognise the importance of tracking students across the educational continuum, their departments of education, working with peer higher education and state agencies, must collect student data from all education service provider entities for a comprehensive view of services. The kindergarten through workforce integration and reporting framework is designed to integrate your IT systems with data repositories and systems, so you can gain a 360-degree view of your programs and student performance from kindergarten through to the workforce. Armed with this information, you can monitor progress, design and assess programs, justify budgets, demonstrate compliance and evaluate student preparedness for the workforce.
Keep the record straight
Built on a service oriented architecture (SOA) that turns data management into services that meet specific end-user needs, the kindergarten through workforce integration and reporting framework helps you:
