Really excited to launch my new website – DATA-COPE, a place for education data analysts to share ideas, learn about the latest tools and policies affecting their work, and to keep the pulse on education analytics and the role they play in improving education outcomes. The group is a loosely organized affiliation of state and local education analysts in the United States as well as external researchers at research organizations which provides support to such agencies. The group’s aim is to better learn from one another, share resources, and keep the pulse on any policy or technology related developments that may significantly impact our shared work.
My first major post on the website covers selecting an analytics platform and software suite to best meet the needs of your agency. Spoiler alert, I’m a big fan of R!
