Data analytics is the process of analyzing raw data to find trends and answer questions. This simple definition does not capture the complexity of the work involved in doing this, especially for our district and school level leaders in today’s high stakes and accountable environment. The key to effective use of raw data is not only understanding the data but creating a culture and providing the tools that empower school system stakeholders to use data effectively to inform decisions.
Whether you are a district administrator, school leader, counselor, teacher, or serve a special population of students, there is an opportunity to learn from data trends and identify opportunities for real improvement with measurable results. With Videri, student data is updated daily and opportunities are surfaced in near real-time to identify trends, measure progress, and celebrate student successes.
Stay tuned for new features being added this Summer that support advanced Assessment Analytics.
