ODE had troves of online report cards in PDF format comparing dozens of data points. The intention was to give the public access to much-needed information so that they could make decisions regarding schooling across the state. However, the data was being presented in stagnant documents. Now, the Open Books site is a point of pride and offers great value to the Oregon public.
We built a more interactive version of the original PDF documents and made the data comparison into an experience. We created click-through comparison charts, drop down tools, and a variety of other clickable tools. Squishymedia designed the interface and built the backend for managing the data that the state of Oregon collects. The projects is ongoing and intended to be updated yearly with new data. Very well used, good value, they are very proud.
