Trying to gather and make sense of
all the data in your district?
Education Incites can help bring together data from disparate systems and sources and present it in a way that enables you to use data to make instructional decisions.
In this age of “Big Data”, school districts are implementing new software and hardware to increase the amount of data they collect and store. However, in doing so they are making it harder to find useful and actionable information in the rapidly growing stores of data.
That’s where Education Incites comes in…
We can help you differentiate signals from noise. Our advanced analytics tools present data in a clean and easy to understand format, enabling educators to identify student segments and performance trends that were previously unrecognizable.
Data Warehousing is the process by which information from different systems is collected and organized for efficient enterprise analysis. Information that is stored and managed by a typical software application is organized for the efficient processing within that software application. The information is not always stored in a fashion that is most efficient for data mining, or deeper decision analytics. Education Incites utilizes Data Warehousing to enable a common data model, which provides a single enterprise version of the truth. We can help you bring together and analyze real-time data from multiple sources.
Once we employ innovative data warehousing processes to organize your data in a format that returns answers to questions in an expedient manner, Education Incites utilizes Advanced Decision Analytics methodologies to ask questions of the data. These questions can be simple queries involving basic counts or tallies, or can range to complex quantitative mathematical expressions requiring adherence to very explicit statistical techniques and methodologies. Our team has extensive experience utilizing Advanced Decision Analytics to help mine meaningful and actionable information out of overwhelming stores of data.
Dashboards & Reporting
Now that your data has been collected and organized for efficient querying, it’s time to think about how to display the results. Education Incites specializes in building dashboards that consolidate and arrange numbers, metrics and performance data on a single, informative screen. Dashboards can be tailored for a specific role and display metrics targeted for a single point of view, or designed to support a broader department, school, or district perspective. We utilize a variety of charts and graphs (bar charts, line charts, column graphs, stacked column charts, pie charts, gauge charts, tables, area charts, heat maps, etc.) to customize dashboards that visualize data in the best way to tell its story.
In order to help educators monitor progress and identify opportunities for intervention, we also offer robust reporting capabilities. We provide standard reports that are commonly used by educators and can be run with the click of a button. We can also create custom reports based on the specific needs of a district. We also provide self-service tools that enable educators to perform queries and data analysis in a self-sufficient manner.
