The Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) is designed to help districts, schools, and teachers make informed, data-driven decisions to improve student learning. SLDS is a free application that is accessed
via a link in the district’s Student Information System (SIS). It provides districts, schools, and teachers with access to historical data, including Assessments, Attendance, Enrollment, Courses, and Grades beginning with the 2006-2007 school year.
Using Georgia's SLDS helps educators:
Make more informed (data-driven) decisions designed to improve student learning.
Identify students' academic strengths and weaknesses.
Increase student achievement and close achievement gaps.
Identify and address potential recurring impediments to student learning, e.g., problems with attendance or difficulty in mastering prerequisite knowledge or skills, before they negatively affect student success.
Quickly create targeted differentiation groups and cohorts.
