DATA ANALYTICS

The Path to Success

By integrating data analytics into your program management day-to-day classroom practice, we can work with you on ways to use your program data to improve decision-making and inform classroom instruction. As educators and administrators, you collect thousands of pieces of data on students ranging from assessments, enrollment and attendance, and student and teacher classroom performance. By instituting a system for reviewing your program data you can pinpoint the strengths and challenges into the myriad of activities taking place in your school and community-based programs. Partner with us to develop questions aimed at assessing program effectiveness, enrollment and attendance, and for understanding where your students are in their learning. The value of data analytics is essential to the work you do, no matter the size of your district or local program setting. By doing so, we can support you how to get the most out of your data for improving decision-making and program quality, such as:

  • Customizing training for your local school board and governing body 

  • Conducting an assessment of data from classroom observations

  • Designing a professional development strategy, i.e., practice-based coaching for teachers

  • Creating training to build data-use skills
