RIDE is building its capacity to collect and manage large quantities of information about schools and districts, and to match individual student records over time and across databases. eRIDE provides a secure portal for each district and school to submit or upload data through a single pipeline.
An adequate statewide student data-collection system makes it easier to meet legal reporting requirements. It also makes possible the analyses necessary to help educators evaluate programs and policies, identify and study best practices, and continuously improve schools.
eRIDE streamlines the data collection process and improves the accuracy, timeliness, and utility of information collected to be used to inform management, budget, and policy decisions.
