DART System: Data Analysis and Reporting Tool System

Bering Strait School District launched its Data Analysis and Reporting Toolkit Project Information in August of 2006. The original version included unique, standards-based tracking features, and linked both individual and group learning needs to educational resources here. DART is an Open Source software tool for the tracking and analysis of student progress on any set of standards.

The current version fully replaces the district's use fo the proprietary PowerSchool system, and is a complete student information system (SIS). Among the new features are attendance and discipline tracking, a dashboard area, testing data, special programs information tracking, and preset exports for state and federal reporting, a school improvement planning module (SIP), Success For All (SFA) management module, transcript printing and conversion.

The district is just finishing its first quarter of beta testing, and new code will soon be posted to:

DART is unlike other gradebook or student information systems since it is completely learner-centered, not tied to staff or school schedules, and provides a intuitive interface for tracking standards. It also shows how those standards relate to other data collected by our organization.

Because DART links relative student weaknesses directly to instructional resources and Open Content curriclum on this wiki, it closes the loop between standards monitoring and instructional planning. Students, teachers and administrators can all view their individual, group or building status on standards progress, and plan for meaningful instruction.

The DART System was jointly developed by BSSD's Curriculum and Instruction, and Educational Technology Departments.

DART is an Open Source software package that will run on any Linux-based server running the Linux / Apache / MySQL / PHP configuration for web services. DART is free like a puppy! There is no charge for the software, but support is provided by the user community, not BSSD.
