The Colorado Department of Higher Education (DHE) has a K-12 Data Alignment
Analyst to be a liaison of information between postsecondary and secondary
education for the state of Colorado.
The K12 Data Alignment Analyst will:
- Gather and analyze research related to the CCSS and higher education expectations, alignment of assessments, impacts of developmental education programs, and other student level data.
- Coordinate with CDE, bolstered by the ability to share student-level data
through the state’s Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) project, to help districts better understand individual student performance as they progress through the P12 and postsecondary education systems.
- Prepare postsecondary performance reports for each high school, including enrollment, concurrent enrollment, remedial placement (including score ranges), student performance, retention, and grades. The data will be disaggregated by ethnicity, gender, and admission index ranges.
- Provide summaries from the state’s new educator evaluation system that will gauge educator’s effectiveness based on student growth and achievement data and that data will, in turn, link back to the educator preparation programs that prepared the educators. Thus, the educator preparation programs will get feedback on the effectiveness of their graduates in helping P12 students meet the new standards and can use that data for program self-improvement.
