Data and Technology Services (DATS)

The Office of Data and Technology Services collects, processes, manages and reports data on a local, state and national level. 

Data plays an important role in improved outcomes for students, starting with the data itself through data gathering, collection and storage, then providing information through data integration, access and retrieval, then into knowledge through data analysis and use, resulting in improved student outcomes

Federal & State Reporting

The Rhode Island Department of Education annually collects a wide range of information from schools and districts. The Department uses a web-based system, eRIDE. Authorized district and school staff are now able to login to eRIDE and submit state and federally mandated data and reports throughout the year.

RIDE uses eRIDE to manage the State Assigned Student IDs (SASID), the state Data Dictionary, publish School and District Report Cards, Statistical Reports, Frequently Requested Education Data (FRED) and other public education data.

RICAS Assessments

2018 was the first year of the new Rhode Island Comprehensive Assessment System (RICAS) in grade 3-8 in English Language Arts and mathematics.

The RICAS assessments are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS); our standards have not changed. Instruction in our classrooms should continue to be aligned to these standards in English language arts and mathematics for all students.

Discipline Data Reporting

  • Includes in-school suspensions, out-of-school-suspensions, and alternate program placements.
  • This critical data is used for determining compliance with federal special education law by identifying districts with discrepancies in the rates of short and long-term suspensions for students with disabilities, and for decisions regarding a district’s use of funds.
  • Based upon this data, districts may be required to review and revise policies, procedures, and practices, reserve 15% of IDEA funds for coordinated early intervening services, and report on the revision of policies, procedures, and practices.
