Tool allows schools to look beyond just test scores; schools select which metrics to track, all in one view

analytics-dashboardPanorama Education, which partners with K-12 schools to collect and analyze feedback from teachers, parents and students, has launched a new Leadership Dashboard designed to provide principals and superintendents with a comprehensive view into the metrics that matter in their school or district.

This new data analytics tool is the first of its kind in the market, and is Panorama’s first big move beyond surveys. The Leadership Dashboard has been beta tested in more than 300 K-12 schools, and will be rolled out to thousands more this spring, including 5 of the 50 largest school districts in the U.S.

Christopher Rau, vice principal at Windsor High School in Windsor, Conn., is one of the school administrators using Panorama’s Leadership Dashboard and school-level reports.

“It lets us easily spot the trends across the board or broken down by department or category. It instantly brought my eyes to where we were exceptionally strong or areas where we need improvement,” said Rau.
