eScholar is at the forefront of enabling State Education Agencies (SEAs) and Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to collect and use education data to improve education outcomes. With the largest number of SEA implementations, eScholar understands the importance of selecting the right technology and solutions partner to create a successful data-driven environment. For many education agencies across the country, eScholar has become their trusted partner for the construction and adoption of data management systems.
Enabling education professionals, as well as parents and students to more effectively manage and use data is our only business. For the last decade, we have exclusively focused on delivering solutions which enable education agencies to integrate, manage and present key education-related data. We are continually working with our customers and other industry leaders to explore new uses of data, new ways to deliver data and new ways to ensure the quality, security and integrity of data.
Experience and Expertise
We have built an organization of experienced education data management and software professionals on staff, as well as a network of industry leading systems integrators and partners who understand the challenges and issues associated with the collection, integration and management of education data. Regarded as the de facto standard, eScholar's suite of data management solutions work within all types of data environments. Whether it is helping you to plan your data warehouse project, create and implement specialized data processes, develop custom reports or interfaces to third-party products, our team has the experience and expertise to get the job done and make you successful.
Dedicated to Customer Success
From your first interaction with us you will find that we have one focus – making your organization successful in using data to improve education. Our talented team of professionals will work directly with you or in partnership with one of our systems integration partners to deliver a solution to meet your goals. Once an eScholar solution is put into production, our account managers will continue to work closely with you to ensure on-going success and to assist you with any additional training, support, or reporting needs that may arise. Our support and maintenance programs provide complete and comprehensive support for all our products, including software upgrades, as well as other Web-based resources, including online documentation and video-casts.
Proven Software Products
In today’s world, taking a chance on custom solutions or unproven products is not something that educators can afford – our commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions are supporting over 18 million students in states and districts across the country. The eScholar Complete Data Warehouse® and the eScholar Uniq-ID® products have become the gold standards for SEAs and LEAs looking for complete education data management solutions. Our products have been designed and developed by software professionals who have worked closely with our customers and partners to ensure that our product functionality continues to both lead the market but also meet today's real-world requirements. Our products not only can help you to meet your requirements today but more importantly will give you the opportunity to expand the value you and your constituents gain from data in the future.
Supporting Key Education Standards, Assessments and Data Sources
Agencies are faced with a myriad of data sources that are essential to a successful education data warehouse or Longitudinal Data System. As outlined in the Partner section of the website, our solutions support the use of hundreds of different education related data sources, including leading Student Information Systems, and commercial assessments. Additionally, our products were designed to work with other key technologies and applications, including reporting and analysis tools using industry standard interfaces.
Our value goes far beyond the technology we offer. Our user community has grown over the years to include large and small Local Education Agencies, State Education Agencies, and even the U. S. Department of Education. Users regularly meet at eScholar-sponsored events or in conjunction with other national events such as the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics) conferences. These various get-togethers provide you with an opportunity to take advantage of experience and expertise of other customers, the eScholar staff, as well as other data management and education professionals.
"This is obviously an extraordinary, once in a lifetime, historic opportunity to make things dramatically better. You need great data systems, you need to be able to track student achievement year after year, track students against teachers, and track teachers back to student education to see which teachers are making a difference in student lives.”
Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, March 2009
