When we designed our school model in 2013, we knew that data would play an integral role in our schools. The problem we faced is a common problem for many other schools; school and student data is often stuck inside traditional proprietary systems that do not talk to each other. Sure, that data can be exported, but schools don’t often have the capacity to constantly run reports and analyze data each time they want to answer a question about student progress. Also, our data looks very different from traditional academic progress data, as it is the result of student progress in a personalized competency-based model. Our challenge was to create dashboards that made this unique data transparent, actionable, and user-friendly for students, families, teachers, and leaders.
