EdTech Startup: Panorama’s platform allows schools and districts to track and support the holistic progress of groups and individual students in real time
Panorama Education, a leading provider of social-emotional learning and student, family, and teacher feedback surveys, today announced the release of a new platform, Panorama Student Success, to help educators bring together academic and non-academic data and act in targeted, timely ways to support students. Panorama Student Success brings academic, attendance, and behavior data together with school climate surveys and social-emotional learning data to paint a full picture of every student’s progress.
Developed in partnership with school and district administrators, Panorama Student Success provides tools to monitor groups and individual students, tracking who is thriving, which students are on track for graduation and college/career readiness, and those who may be at risk. By organizing data from multiple sources into an easy-to-use interface, the tool equips educators with the insights they need to spend less time sorting through spreadsheets and more time with students.
With daily syncs to schools’ data systems and automatic notifications for important changes, such as when a student is newly struggling, Panorama Student Success enables proactive, timely student support and interventions. With Panorama Education currently serving 5 million students and more than 7,000 schools, Panorama Student Success is in use in several districts across the country.
“We are thrilled to see school teams using Panorama Student Success on a daily basis,” said Aaron Feuer, CEO of Panorama Education. “The educators I have spoken with talk about how powerful it is to see trends in students’ grades and attendance information alongside non-academic measures, like behavior data and social-emotional learning assessments. To us, this wider lens is key to fully understanding and supporting students’ long-term strengths and growth as people.”
Panorama Student Success is designed to meet the changing needs of school systems. For instance, the National Center for Education Statistics reports rising numbers of English language learners (ELLs) nationwide, and many districts are seeing significant local growth in the number of ELLs they serve. School teams can use Panorama Student Success to monitor the progress of ELLs with lower attendance and SEL indicators or keep track of intervention groups across each indicator. On the platform, students are automatically added or removed from these “smart groups” as the data updates on a daily basis.
Panorama Student Success is in use in several school districts across the country, including Waltham Public Schools in Waltham, Massachusetts. Liz Homan, Ph.D, administrator of educational technology, coordinated the launch of Student Success in Waltham’s schools. Reflecting on bringing Panorama Student Success into her district, Dr. Homan said, “When our principals look at data, I don’t actually want them grappling with raw data. I want them to have a dashboard that lets them quickly glance and take action. So I’ve been really excited about the way our experience with Panorama Student Success has unfolded. With this platform, the data is actually capable of representing a full picture of success or struggle for our students. It’s really a different thing when a company helps you put all these things together to see a holistic view of a student.”
