All participating schools can access their data and results through traditional reports or through our web-based data visualization tools. Traditional research reports annually examine teacher and student survey results across school levels, subject areas, and other pertinent variables.
The web-based data visualization tools provide a dynamic and easy-to-use platform for educators and school leaders to explore their results. Through these tools, schools can view and manipulate quantitative and qualitative data. Although lacking the user- control, these example screenshots (below) provide a short introduction to the range of visual representation provided for each partner school.
Visual map of of students frequency of technology practices across six schools and five subject areas (n=5127):
This example displays the relative frequency of different student practices across six schools (S1-S6), as well as how frequently they used technology in their different classes (n=5127 students). Users can navigate the data such that they can see the patterns of relationships across partner schools, subject areas, and specific student practices.
Frequency of students technology use in Math classes across schools, and grade levels (n=5127)
With the dynamic data presentation, users can access and select from numerous variables to explore the relationship between students and teacher practices and other factors.
In Figure 2, students’ frequency of technology use in Math is displayed across their schools and grade level (n=5127 students). Drop down menus in each window allow exploration of different subject areas, different schools, and other student characteristics (such as gender, home language, Facebook status, etc.).
Frequency of students technology use in Math classes across schools, for grade 7 students only (n=638)
In Figure 3, only 7th grade student math use is displayed (n=638 students) across 6 schools). Note the different pattern of use for 7th grade student than for students across all grade levels (Fig. 2)
Frequency of students technology use in Math classes for one school’s grade 7 students (n=199)
In Figure 4, 7th grade student math use is displayed only for a single school (n=199 students). Here schools can easily explore how their student results compare to other settings, across a wide variety of variables and factors.
