Data Warehouse and Reporting System The CEDARS Data Warehouse and Reporting System is the centralized data repository containing statewide longitudinal data and the reporting and analysis tools for accessing the data repository. The reporting system allows for the analysis of relationships between various educational factors and student performance over time. CEDARS supports the data sharing and reporting needs of DPI staff, school principals, and local administrators, state and federal policy and decision makers, researchers, and other consumers of educational data. It will also improve the state's ability to share and exchange data with external entities, including institutes of higher education, and other state agencies. The user will interface with the reporting and analysis tools through Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE). The OBIEE tools include reports, dashboards, query options, and graphic displays of reports and data analysis.
