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. By identifying and visualizing the previously unknown patterns in the data, Education Leadership Data Analytics helps school leaders use more rich and contextualized data to inform evidence-based improvement cycles with their teachers and students as they make decisions on how to leverage the limited resources of schools to address specific student needs.
