What is 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. This data includes:

  • Achievement Test Results (grades 3,4,8 and 10)
  • ACT, AP® Exam, Retention
  • Attendance, Dropouts, Truancy
  • High School Completion, Post-graduation Plans
  • Program Offerings and Participation
  • Staffing, Finance
  • Suspensions and Expulsions
