Local Assessment Data Use Information
Starting with the 2021-22 school year, districts wishing to use their PALS or MAP local assessment data with secure WISEdash for Districts can complete a single, unified data sharing agreement in WISEadmin Portal. By acknowledging this new single data sharing agreement, the agency agrees to have local assessment data transmitted to DPI by the local assessment vendor. This new data sharing agreement is perpetual and does not require your agency to reacknowledge it every school year.
Agency users and district administrators can acknowledge this data sharing agreement through the WISEadmin Portal application.
