Edwin Analytics is a powerful reporting and data analysis tool that gives authorized districts and state level users access to new information, reports and perspectives on education and programs that specifically support improvements in teaching and learning. Edwin Analytics is unique because it integrates longitudinal data from pre-kindergarten through public post-secondary education. The available tools and reports for this data will help educators make informed decisions about how and where they can improve upon their teaching practices to provide an exceptional learning experience for their students. As part of the Department's continued commitment to improve the quality of education in Massachusetts, we highly recommend and encourage the use of these new Edwin Analytics tools.

School and district personnel should contact their district's Edwin Analytics contact for additional information. A contact list is available on School/District Profiles by selecting 'Edwin Analytics Contact' in the function field. All users should read the documents below before being granted access to Edwin Analytics.
