K-12 Education: Building a Data Driven Culture Through Analytics

A key component of building a data driven culture is ensuring that all teachers and administrators can access and interact with all student data from a variety of sources in one easy-to-access location, providing an accurate, real-time picture of student, teacher, and school performance.

Attend this web seminar to learn how administrators at Uplift Education—an award-winning charter school network in the Dallas-Fort Worth area—launched a self-service analytics platform to serve as their central Data Portal, enabling simultaneous data analysis by some 800 teachers and administrators, helping to gauge achievement more accurately and ensuring that students in need of intervention are identified much more quickly.
