What is TIE?

The purpose of the TIE Assessment is to help schools understand the impact technology has on academics, operations, and data security as well as provide member schools with a dashboard report indicating their strength in these areas relative to the ATLIS member school norms.


What value does it have for my school? 

Individual school reports will include areas of strength as well as targeted improvement based on predictive analytics.  These suggested areas are selected from those that will have the greatest effect on improving the impact technology has on the school program.  View a sample report here


How do I get started?

Beginning in the fall, collection for the benchmark will begin and your results will be available prior to the ATLIS conference. The collection window for the 2021 benchmark closes on March 1st. Start planning now so you can start collecting data from staff and students no later than the March 1st. TIE data was called out in the NAIS trendbook. Make sure your school participates in this important nationwide collection.
