Decision Dupport System


Definition: An information system that provides data to decision makers in a timely and usable manner.

What This Means: Data-driven decision making (D3M) in education must be supported by an information system that collects, stores, analyzes, and provides (reports) the data at the time a decision must be informed. Decision support systems take many forms from simple reporting systems to sophisticated query and analytical applications. So this is a general term that applies to one or more applications that an education agency uses to provide data for decision makers.
