What is WISE? Wisconsin State Reporting Made Easy

October 12, 2023 at 8:18 AM

The Wisconsin Information System for Education (WISE) comprises various tools that aid in ID generation and data collection, ensuring compliance with district, school state, and federal reporting mandates. This, in turn, facilitates education research and data analysis through dashboards and reporting tools, ultimately enhancing our understanding and improvement of educational outcomes for Wisconsin students. These systems prioritize robust data quality and security policies to safeguard data privacy.

That's where Level Data comes in!
