PeerPower got started at the NOVA EDU Startup Weekend - June 2012.
Welcome to the PeerPower website, the only place you can convert an SOL, PARCC, or MCAS score into a percentile ranking in your child's school, school district, and state.
We are dedicated to empowering students with how they compare to their peers.
We are the exclusive providers of these percentile rankings. You can trust our results because we have the most up-to-date (anonymous) data provided directly from the Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts Departments of Education. We also participated in the in the Virginia Longitudinal Data System (VLDS) Apps4VA competition, a program sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education and the Center for Innovation and Technology (CIT) where we received feedback from many different audiences, including DOE administrators, advisors, students, educators, and parents.
PeerPower recently presented at the VLDS Insights Conference - you can see our powerpoint in this document on the CIT website:
