MIDAS (Massively Integrated Data Analytics System) manages most of the software systems schools and districts use, especially as they relate to teaching and learning and academic accountability.

MIDAS combines the utility of an SIS, LMS, CMS, SPED compliance, graduation planning, transportation, scheduling, teacher mentoring and professional development, data analytics, state reporting, as well as the ability to build and curate curriculum and assessments to truly personalize teaching and learning.

What grade and age range?  

K–20

Is this core/supplemental/special needs/extra-curricular/professional development or what?

All of the above.

What subject, topic, what standards is it mapped to?

MIDAS is standards-agnostic. Our customers have the ability to load any common or custom set of standards.

What lesson time does it use?  

MIDAS is a comprehensive solution that can be used as often as needed or all the time.

What is the pricing model?

$15 per student includes all of the systems listed above and is all-encompassing, so no surprises.

Are there services around it?

MIDAS provides professional development in every area based on a thorough needs assessment and implementation plan conducted in collaboration with district leadership and other stakeholders.

What makes it unique? 

MIDAS is a comprehensive, cloud-based system designed to replace most, if not all, of the current educational software systems used by districts today. By having all of the data in one database and setting up strict permission protocols, stakeholders get real-time information when, how, and on whatever device they need—in a secure, safe environment.

A description of the characteristics—how is it designed for user interface, user experience?  What instructional design principles are at work here?

MIDAS is designed with one easy user interface for all modules, so training is simplified.

Because it is an API-driven solution built on a single Amazon Web Services database, MIDAS can scale quickly and easily in any environment, large or small.

 

A Director of Instructional Technology’s Review:

“When our district adopted MIDAS, our goals were to track every student and every standard and to create transparency for our parents. MIDAS’s flexible platform allows us to do that, and it also serves as our SIS, LMS, intervention, and Web site platform—saving our district a significant amount of money. With the click of a button (and only one log-in) we’re able to pull endless reports pinpointing patterns in our own strengths and weaknesses in teaching and learning. Through the implementation and customization process, we’ve gained a symbiotic relationship and partnership with the MIDAS team that we’ve never experienced from any other company we’ve ever worked with.”

—James Kapptie, Director of Instructional Technology, Park County School District #6, Cody, Wyoming
