Interactive Information Analysis
The District Pulse
provides extensive support for real-time end user data analysis.
To perform this function, raw data from various application systems
used by a school district, such as student, assessment, finance,
transportation and other systems is accumulated, merged and then
transformed into management information specifically for analysis
purposes. The preparation of data specifically for interactive
analysis greatly reduces the complexity and time required for highly
In the example at the
right of this page, The District Pulse has generated an analysis
model that incorporates extensive
summary information for all of the students in a school district.
This information has been consolidated from numerous sources that
System - Demographics Module
System - Attendance Module
System - Discipline Module
In addition, several new
fields have been calculated by Pulse so the analysis process is
greatly simplified. In this example, the total discipline
events and total absences for each students have been calculated and
stored as discrete fields to make end user access far more simple.
responsibility of the user is simply to select the desired data for
viewing. In this example, the user has taken two actions.
The first is to select two specific student assessment scores, the
total absences for students and the total disciplinary events for
all students. Initially displayed are graphs of the average
scores, absences and discipline events for all students in the
school district. The second action was to drag and drop "Grade
Level" and "Gender" from the Pulse generated Dimensions box to the
left of the display. The result is a new display graphically
showing average assessment scores, average absences and average
disciplinary events for all students by grade and gender.
The user may
quickly determine the relationship between test results, student
attendance and student behavior. Thousands of other
evaluations and comparatives are supported just within the simple
model generated for this example.
The District Pulse provides all data
preparation and processing functions as
integrated components of The District Pulse.
