  • Using Data to Improve the Management and Operations of an Online School Joe Cozart
  • Background • Supplemental program est. 2005, grades 6-12 • $250 tuition per student course enrollment • ~20,000 course enrollments in the last year focused in AP and world languages • Typical student is at a public school taking an online course with us for the first time because their local school does not offer the course
  • Overview • Learning analytics • Course survey analysis • Budget analysis • Course enrollment forecasting
  • Learning Analytics • Use D2L for LMS and analytics • This year teachers are required to reflect monthly on data in their e-portfolios, mirrors statewide focus with SLDS and bonus points on CCRPI • It has let us see student tool access, grade patterns, link between tool usage and grades
  • Course Surveys • Course development adjustments • Better comparison data on teachers than measures like pass rate and class averages.
  • Budget Analysis • Overspending on new teacher training in terms of cost per person, low completion rate of new hires • https://www.openteachertraining.org
  • Course enrollment forecasting • 300+ course offerings, 150+ adjunct and FT staff, students from 500+ schools statewide • Needed better enrollment predictions than blanket growth rate to keep courses staffed and open to new enrollments • Use time series analysis with SPSS to forecast enrollments and get confidence intervals.
