What is ELDA?
Schools and districts are awash in data, from more traditional data sources such as test scores, grades, attendance, discipline reports and surveys, to more recent innovations such as intelligent tutoring computer systems, computer interaction logfile data, and multimodal instrumented instructional spaces. Education Leadership Data Analytics (ELDA) helps school leaders make sense of the data that are collected on students and schools on a daily basis through applying current big data, data mining, and data science analytic techniques to educational issues that are important to teachers, principals, superintendents, parents, and most importantly, students.
