Data Analytics for K-12 Education
The mission of every school district is to put students in the best position to succeed. By engaging all relevant parties – from parents and teachers to the principals and the overall school administration – in a student focused dialogue is vital to that mission. Being able to access and act on success factor data is essential in shaping the dialogue for positive outcomes. Most school districts evaluate student success using data, from reading levels and standardized test scores to graduation rates. It is well known and documented that attendance is a key factor for these scores – if students miss even just 1-2 days a month on average, they are much more likely to see lower performance across every aspect of their education.
With The Copley Consulting Group and Qlik Analytics, K-12 districts can leverage business analytics and visualizations to make better decisions and provide improved educational outcomes for their students, while managing finances, facilities, and staff. School administrators must prioritize their focus on increasing educational outcomes, tightening budgets, providing secure schools, and managing complex staff requirements. By accessing numerous data sources, Qlik business analytics gives K-12 education decision-makers all the relevant data needed to explore issues thoroughly to find the right path for the student and the district.
Raise K-12 Education Student Success Rates with Business Analytics
Elevate student performance by knowing which areas to improve and how to improve them. Use Qlik’s associative capabilities to analyze student achievement levels in context with numerous factors ─ teacher qualifications, curriculum effectiveness, program budgets, and more. The results close achievement gaps and improve student performance. Beginning at the District level, school systems can drill all the way down to an individual classroom to understand which students are not performing as well as their peers, all with the click of a button. Educators can now see and analyze specific test questions on standardized tests and determine why the majority of one classroom answered Question 1 correctly, but another classroom did not. Business analytics for K-12 education can provide a complete view of a struggling student and quickly identify potential causes such as a high number of absences or any disciplinary problems. When utilizing Qlik’s advanced mapping technology, you can proactively identify registered tutors around an underperforming student’s home for any subject. Match any student to a tutor for more personalized education outside the classroom to extend the opportunities for students to be in the best position to succeed.
