Student Analytics Lab

Capitalize on the rich insights contained within your student data — regardless of where that data resides — to improve student outcomes. Student Analytics Lab (formerly 5Lab) makes it easy to combine all of your data and present it visually so you can easily measure student performance, assess next grade/college- and career-readiness, close learning gaps, advance equity, and improve student outcomes.

  • Monitor student performance and progress across learning environments.
  • Identify, at the student level, those falling behind for intervention planning.
  • Identify “blind spots” to ensure equity and access.

Location Analytics

Districts increasingly need to answer questions related to “where.” Location Analytics (formerly 5Maps) enables you to instantly gain location-based insights by adding a critical geographic dimension to your student and community data.

With Location Analytics, you can combine disparate data sources into an interactive map to quickly see patterns and trends related to capacity, equity, access, enrollment, boundaries, resource placement, and more. It's easy to create a district-wide view, and then drill-down to a neighborhood or student-specific view in just a few clicks. And unlike with other complex mapping tools, you won’t need a technical expert to use it.

  • Evaluate boundaries and attendance zones to determine optimal resource placement
  • Prepare for referendums, tax levy elections, tax elections, bond elections, and other voter approved decisions.
  • Use FCC data to understand student internet access and close the digital divide
  • Assess open enrollment and choice trends, so that you can better predict funding
  • Outline program offerings by building, enhance school board presentations, and support public forums and staff meetings with district personnel.
