The ecosystem of K-12 education is very dynamic and the number of cloud based services that support education is expanding rapidly. This results in more and more student data being created at many different locations. In order to make maximum use of existing data while respecting privacy and creating end user transparency in who is using what, the UMA specification offers the tools for implementing such an environment. Kennisnet is the public educational organization which supports and inspires Dutch primary, secondary and vocational institutions in the effective use of ict  a.o. by offering public online services and platforms. Kennisnet investigates the user-centric approach of data management for education using UMA.  Kennisnet created a mock-up of an UMA based dashboard for end users.
