What is WISEdash?
WISEdash: Wisconsin Information System for Education Data Dashboard
WISEdash is a data portal that uses "dashboards," or visual collections of graphs and tables, to provide multi-year education data about Wisconsin schools. Data on the portal are redacted and available by school, district, or State. Current and Certified data can be displayed for multiple years and it can be grouped and filtered by a variety of demographics including grade level, gender, race/ethnicity, economic status, disability, English proficiency, and migrant status. Data download files are also available. As a public reporting tool, WISEdash is used by districts, schools, parents, researchers, media, and other community members to view data published by DPI.

What's in WISEdash?
Each year, all Wisconsin public 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 public 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. Private school data is not included in WISEdash. Links to other educational datasets and key reports are available in WISEdash. WISEdash will provide a streamlined delivery of consistent data and dashboards
