UNIS Hanoi has now been a member of the LAC for two years and in that time, it has enabled us to significantly enhance our meaningful use of data to impact student learning. Through the efforts and good thinking of our faculty led by our ES Principal, Ms. Megan Brazil, we have made use of the wonderful services provided by the LAC in visualizing the data in such a way so as to make it user friendly for faculty, parents and students. I encourage all schools to consider joining the LAC.

Having our school’s academic and learning data was only step one. Where the LAC excels and continues to shine is through consolidating all our data and then comparing and visualizing it to establish the narrative of “why” things happened. We’re now looking forward to taking the “why” and with the LAC, developing testable strategies to further enhance learning.

ASL's participation in the Learning Analytics Collaborative makes it possible for us to rethink how, where, and why we use student data. It allows us to significantly improve access to numerous data points and provides us with powerful visualization tools to generate data-driven questions and discussions. Our relationship with the LAC team has been one of real partnership and excellent support, they are responsive, easy to reach, and very open to our feedback.

Schools are busy places, so we really appreciate the support from the Learning Analytics Collaborative team. It is like having your own data scientist, programmer, and data interpreter on your staff just when you need them. We are most helped when we interact with people in similar roles at other schools.

ASIJ chose to partner with the Learning Analytics Collaborative so that our teachers could better understand the learners they serve. Our faculty had a desire to respond more thoughtfully and productively to each child and now they can do just that. Just one year after implementation, our faculty are more empowered and informed. LAC visualizes student learning data in a way that makes sense to teachers. Instead of having our data scattered amongst different programs and sites, we now have an integrated and responsive way to analyze student learning data - thank you LAC!

Zurich International School has been a member of the Learning Analytics Collaborative for several years. The services provided by Consilience have expanded each year and the network that we have joined has been very beneficial. Our membership has been invaluable extending access to researchers and data scientists while building understanding and expertise within our organization. We entered the collaborative with the specific aim of wanting to measure the impact of technology investments on teaching and learning. We are now applying our growing expertise to rethink how we design assessment and reporting across our school.
Through our membership:
we were able to improve survey design, how we collect data and how we store data in our Student Information System
receive an annual report of findings relative to other international schools in the collaborative
access to coaching on how to interpret and analyze the results
access to and voice in the design of diagnostic visual tools to interpret the data
