(August 4, 2015) MI School Data usage has continued to grow since it was first launched just a few years ago. It’s become an indispensable tool for educators, policy makers, media, researchers—the list keeps growing. As our user base grows, so do questions about CEPI and the data sources.
For example, we’re often asked if CEPI is part of the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). CEPI is not part of MDE, but a division under the State Budget Office. Learn more by going to our About CEPI page on the CEPI website.
We are often asked how to cite the data we provide. We strongly encourage you to cite CEPI when using the data. For guidance, whether you’re using MI School Data’s dynamic report settings or downloading a data file, see Citing CEPI Data.
Users of our data also want to know about the data collections and sources. That information can be found by clicking on About This Report at the top of each MI School Data report screen.
Remember, we want to hear from you if you have questions or suggestions. Contact our Customer Support team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 517-241-1123.
