WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Schoolytics, provider of student engagement analytics, today announced the launch of their platform to inform data-driven actions in the classroom. Through a collaboration with Google for Education that includes integrations with Google Classroom, Schoolytics delivers educators the power to track and assess student engagement and performance in a new era of digital learning. The Schoolytics platform enables schools to optimize and streamline how school administrators collect, aggregate and interact with student data.
“Schools are data rich and information poor,” said Aaron Wertman, Founder and CEO of Schoolytics. “Historically, a significant burden has been placed on educators to stitch together and make sense of complex student data when they often lack the time or resources to do so. Our mission is to make these extensive data sets digestible for both the educators and school administrators to provide a holistic picture of student engagement and a clear path to increase student success.”
Access to ‘clean data’ is critical in today’s environment where a large percentage of students across the United States have started the school year online. Schoolytics supports educators in defining and understanding the characteristics of an engaged student by providing easy access to visualizations showing student habits and activity at the course, teacher, grade and school level. Additionally, the platform’s automated analytics can serve as an early warning system for students who could be considered at-risk for falling behind in their coursework.
“As schools explore how to track attendance and engagement with virtual and hybrid learning models, one of our key recommendations is to encourage teachers to post daily questions that students can respond to in Google Classroom,” said John Putnam, Head of School Success at Schoolytics and former educational consultant. “By combining student engagement data with course content in Schoolytics, educational institutions are provided with insight into the effectiveness of current curriculums and programs.”
“Schoolytics has provided our district with exceptional visibility into Google Classroom and G Suite activity, ultimately allowing us to obtain valuable analytics that we would otherwise not have," said the IT Director of the Shasta Union High School District in California. "Schoolytics empowers our administrators and educators to effectively leverage technology and measure engagement in this time of distance learning so we can focus on delivering the best instruction possible to our students."
Schoolytics serves over 250 K-12 schools across 10 states in analyzing student engagement data. The Schoolytics’ platform integrates into Google applications, such as Google Classroom, Google Meet, Google Sign-On and more. Once connected to an institutions’ G Suite account, the platform will begin aggregating data and generating actionable insights.
