Education Analytics

From early education to institutional enrollment and scholarships, the sources of education data are vast. Managing analysis and reporting requirements across departments or campuses can seem challenging, but education analytics with Tableau can solve these problems.

Tableau eases this burden by allowing anyone to perform sophisticated education analytics and share their findings. See how lesson plans correlate to student performance, find ways to keep at-risk kids engaged, discover ways to make enrollment more efficient. Tableau can also be a powerful tool within the classroom, empowering students and educators alike to see and understand their data.

In a world where data analytics are becoming more and more valuable, it is vital for all facets of the education system to become comfortable with data. This is why Tableau is committed to making world-class analytics tools accessible and affordable within Education. Students can enjoy free access to Tableau, educators get access to a wealth of resources, and administrators may qualify for special discounts.
