Education Data

Data is critical to Hawai‘i P-20’s mission of supporting the state’s education goal of having 55 percent of Hawai‘i’s working age adults with a two- or four-year college degree by 2025. Under Hawai‘i P-20’s leadership, an education to workforce statewide longitudinal data system (SLDS) was created as a resource that provides the critical information needed to strengthen the education pipeline and evaluate the effectiveness of policies, programs, and strategies to reduce achievement gaps throughout the pre-kindergarten to postsecondary.

Hawa’i P-20 manages the Data eXchange Partnership (DXP) a partnership of five state agencies that have agreed that sharing data is necessary in order to close achievement gaps for the state’s most vulnerable student populations.

The five state agencies include — University of Hawai‘i, Hawai‘i State Department of Education, Department of Labor and Industrial Relations, Hawai‘i State Department of Health and Department of Human Services. These agencies collectively represent the education-to-workforce pipeline and their data, linked together, create the statewide longitudinal data system.

The DXP has given Hawai‘i P-20 the responsibility for: 1) maintaining and administering data governance; 2) managing the development of the SLDS; 3) fulfilling requests for data from core partners and researchers; 4) ensuring the security and privacy of confidential data; and 5) disseminating information on student achievement through reports, issue briefs, presentations, and interactive web dashboards. The SLDS is codified in state statute (see Hawai‘i Revised Statutes § 27-7) with development beginning in 2009.

Hawai‘i P-20 data team is responsible to analyzing and disseminating information through various reports,  issue briefs, presentations and interactive web dashboards that inform stakeholders with valuable information that helps prepare students for college and career success as well as engage Hawai‘i’s education and workforce communities to implement strategies that impact and close student achievement gaps.


CCRI Reports

The College and Career Readiness Indicators Report (CCRI) have been developed through Hawai‘i P-20 in partnership with the Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) and the University of Hawai‘i System. The reports present information on how well Hawai‘i’s graduates are prepared to meet the HIDOE’s Vision of a High School Graduate.

Data Dashboards

Interactive dashboards created by the data team allow users to visualize and filter data, and to review trends in college preparedness and other measures. Currently, dashboards are available with information on middle- to high school transitions and college to workforce, as well as high school outcomes, assessments, and college enrollment and persistence.

Issue Briefs

These reports are developed by Hawai‘i P-20’s data team to share best practices using data collected and analyzed on various college and career readiness initiatives.
