Pearson PowerSchool Adds LearnSprout Data Dashboard
Pearson has partnered with LearnSprout to make the startup's analytics dashboard available in the PowerSchool student information system (SIS) through the PowerSchool independent software vendor (ISV) partner program.
PowerSchool administrators can now use the dashboard to see chronically absent students and high school counselors can use the dashboard's college-readiness tracking tools to "make it simple to monitor an entire school's progress toward college entrance requirements at a glance and identify students who need a nudge in the right direction," according to a news release.
"Modern-day student information systems, such as PowerSchool, have evolved to collect and store massive amounts of grade, attendance and discipline information efficiently," said Frank Chien, chief executive officer for LearnSprout, in a prepared statement. "But few districts have the tools or skills required to take advantage of such large data sets. With LearnSprout, we've made it really easy for non-technical users to get important and timely insights from school data."
"LearnSprout's unique value proposition has caught the attention of PowerSchool users," said Oliver Wreford, vice president of product and marketing for Pearson's School Systems group,in a news release. "The LearnSprout Dashboard makes the data managed in PowerSchool very visible and actionable to our users. We're excited to have LearnSprout on board as a member of our ISV program."
