eScholar announced today eScholar Interstate™ ID eXchange. Used at the State Education Agency level, eScholar Interstate ID eXchange allows staff to find and correctly identify students that travel between participating states, provides unduplicated identification and maintains aliases of participating states.
eScholar Interstate ID eXchange includes the ability to search for students, review potential match results from other participating states, make match verification decisions and review previously verified identifiers. The application utilizes elements of the Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) and valid values during data transmission, making interstate data communication and integration between states more seamless. Additional features include:
- Expands the student search and identification process from within the state to across state lines
- Enables the ability to accurately locate mobile students including potential false dropouts across state lines
- Enables more accurate reporting of drop-out rates, ensuring that rates are not falsely inflated when students move out of state.
