When multiple data sets are brought together into one space, multiple perspectives can be brought to life. Now, administrators can triangulate data to easily identify areas of focus. PRISM does just that and even provides multiple granularity levels to aggregate or disaggregate the data to create solutions for specific problem areas such as strategic planning, building goals, interventions, attendance trends, and behavior data.
Take a look at the infographic below which provides just one example of how PRISM might be used. Each granularity level represents a piece of the puzzle which makes up a school district. This puzzle, however, creates whatever picture a district is looking for, thus providing context to different student stories!
