School Data Analytics and Visualization

Creating Data-Driven Insights to Improve Decision Making

LiveBook is a comparative analytics technology that helps educators associate content, visualize data, and explore relationships.

This integrated data analytics platform automatically merges the data from AdminPlus with schoolwide assessments uploaded from external sources to create comprehensive tables and charts. Visual formats are added to help interpret the data which empowers school staff to quickly pinpoint patterns, differences, and trends which leads to better decision making for evidenced-based solutions.

LiveBook analytics are used to flag students based on poor attendance, behavior, or performance. The powerful built-in Cohort Manager allows users to narrow the scope to focus on a specific school, grade level, or group of students.

The Charting Presentation feature allows users to create presentations charting various fields within the data that can be shared with other LiveBook users or presented in a slide show for Board, department, or parent meetings.

AdminPlus Chapters enable users to analyze integrated core data elements common to all AdminPlus schools – demographics, enrollment data, attendance, department/course/section/ D and F counts, report card grades, and more. Each AdminPlus Chapter comes with a prepared Data Study that allows the user to visualize the data and drill down or query the data to explore further.

Single Sign-On for Teachers ensures that teachers have access to the latest assessment data, key demographics, and statistics for their current roster of students. Easy access to the Student Snapshot allows them to dig deeper into assessments, historical data and comments posted by other educators on challenges and interventions.

Assessment Data
LiveBook processes data from assessments such as:

NWEA MAP

College Board PSAT 8/9

College Board PSAT NMSQT

MCAS

iReady

...And More!

The Problem:

Multiple Sources: Assessments are stored on different sites (i.e., State DOE, College Board, NWEA) with varying score interpretation guidelines.

Unique Needs: Administrators, school counselors, specialists, and classroom teachers need the same data on distinct groups of students.

Searching for Trends: Identifying correlations and trends when looking at separate data table assessments can be challenging.

Constantly Changing: Program statuses change over time (such as Special Ed and ELL). It can become difficult to keep up with the latest information.

Manual Processes: Teachers must walk down to the office to pull a student’s file to see their assessment history.

Time and Effort: Extra labor and time needed to extract and compile the necessary information from various sources - deciding which data fields to keep and which to exclude.

Quickly Outdated: Timely distribution of finalized compiled data to school staff is difficult for IT/Data Managers to keep up with.

The Solution: LiveBook

One Source: All assessment data is already uploaded and stored in one place - the LiveBook site.

Cohort Management: Cohorts can be created and saved by users so they can narrow the scope of data to fit their needs.

Spot Trends: Multiple data visualizations can be displayed at once to see correlations and trends that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.

Current Info: Integration with our AdminPlus SIS means all information is up to date (such as Special Ed and ELL statuses).

Easy Access: Drill down to the Student Snapshot to see more detail on student performance.

Easy Look-Up: All assessment data is keyed to a student's unique ID and presented in color-coded table views, making it easy to understand.

Single Sign-On: LiveBook Single Sign-On from our TeacherPlus Gradebook means teachers always have access to the data they need for students in their current section rosters.
