Jeff Averick, Certica Solutions
Certify™ software allows local education agencies (LEAs) to validate and monitor student, school
and teacher data on a daily basis, at any time during the year to give districts a high level of
confidence in their ability to report complete and accurate data to their state education agencies (SEAs);
be automatically notified when data violates state standards; provide a detailed inventory of data issues
that need to be addressed in district administrative systems; and reduce the time that district and school
personnel spend reviewing, reconciling, and correcting data issues.

Using Real-Time Web-Enabled Applications and Dashboards for Timely Analysis and Reporting—in support of the government’s
increasing efforts to provide transparency and results to the public, the U.S. Department of Education has adopted an education
data dashboard. Building off of this premise, this demonstration provides two examples of real-time applications with performance
dashboards that provide efficient and timely analysis of results. One dashboard shows the monitoring of a hypothetical grant
program and highlights how the dashboard identifies grantee compliance and performance trends and gaps. A second dashboard and
corresponding application were developed to maximize effectiveness and efficiency in conducting systematic reviews for
meta-analysis. The application facilitates the coding of literature and reporting of results, reducing burden and bias, and
enforcing a coding scheme. The dashboard provides visualization of literature search results, improved quality assurance,
status or progress updates, and trends and gaps identification. Together the tools aim to foster collaboration between researchers
by allowing more systematic comparisons across vast volumes of research.
