In March 2021, OnCourse released a new feature called Multiple Measures, which gives schools a new way to explore the various factors affecting student achievement.
Multiple Measures: How it Works
OnCourse generates hundreds of data points every day. OnCourse Multiple Measures lets school staff quickly drag different data points onto a single dashboard, giving a holistic view of student growth.
In a few seconds, users can create an easy-to-read continuum of summative and formative test scores, class grades, attendance, demographics, or any other data point tracked in OnCourse.
The show-stopper, however, is a feature called Plots. This feature lets districts plot a desired outcome, then quickly examine the intersecting factors that influence that outcome. This is a school leader’s crystal ball, capable of peering across variables to answer questions like:
- How effective is remote vs in-person learning?
- Are our chosen benchmark assessments correlated to performance on the summative?
- Do students’ grades correlate with their test performance? If not, why?
- Is a professional development or curriculum decision having the effect we hoped?
- Which teachers produce better results and can this learning be leveraged out to other teachers?
- What teachers are creating the best outcomes for ELL students?
