Instead of making assumptions, administrators, interventionists, and teachers now use data to know where to focus their attention.
“Tableau really made it possible for us to conceptualize where to take this advanced analytics project, because it makes data accessible. Tableau allowed for those conversations around data accuracy, making sure that we're truly looking at the right population for the right reasons,” shared Kimberly.
"As a data analyst, I can dive into the student data, whether it's attendance, behavior, or achievement to identify students that are at risk, need intervention, or need additional assistance. This really helps overall student outcomes."
In Tableau, the team elevates the dropout prevention model with visual analytics, making the data relevant, understandable, and actionable. In the future, the team plans to add yearly data to the model, allowing the district to monitor trends over time even more effectively.
“Today, we can have conversations with the administration. With Tableau, we can show them our model and they can understand how factors are affecting our demographic, our population, the type of students that we serve, and we can continually go back to it to extend our analysis,” explains Kimberly.
Assessment dashboards allow teachers to dig deeper into student achievement data in real time. Teachers can drill down into topics within each subject to customize their intervention.
