Saving Teachers Time
If there's anyone who needs more time, it's teachers. At Aspire Public Schools, which takes a metrics-heavy approach to evaluating student performance, this is especially true. So Aspire used Tableau to cut the time teachers spent on data grunt work and give them time back, time they can spend understanding the data and teaching.
"What we've done with Tableau is support that process for both the short term cycles and the quarterly cycles, allowing teachers to interact with the data in ways that they couldn't before. It helps them spend more time thinking, gaining insights on what they should be doing when they walk in the classroom the next day, as opposed to spending time getting the data," says Lynzi Ziegenhagen, Director of Technology Solutions at Aspire.
