Data analysis reveals keys to student success

The Hechinger Report

Trilogy’s certainty has been nearly 3 million data points in the making. Early on, this survey was longer and Trilogy collected data on more than a dozen different metrics, but over the last few years it has become clear what matters most. At Trilogy, Chou sees data being used to inform the curriculum and student support as he never saw in the K-12 world. Many schools and districts collect even more data than Trilogy has.

Analysis: hundreds of colleges and universities show financial warning signs

The Hechinger Report

A total of 2,662 schools were included in the analysis, and 2,264 had enough data to be evaluated in every category. All data predates the pandemic. Our analysis of the stress test results found: Nationwide, more than 500 colleges and universities show warning signs in two or more metrics. And for public two-year colleges, the analysis checked enrollment, state and local funding and the ratio of tuition revenue to instructional costs.

Using DataBasic for Simple Data Analysis

ProfHacker

I love teaching with visualized data: something as simple as running a text through Wordle (a word cloud tool) can reveal all sorts of fun things about what’s going on in a text through making patterns more visible. However, a lot of the tools for next-level data analysis aren’t particularly easy to use and can be overkill for simple lessons. It takes every column and turns it into a representation: bar charts for numerical data, and word clouds for text fields.
