Beyond the Hype of Big Data in Education

Blog Post created by Zac Bacco on Oct 9, 2018

Last week, our Learning Science and Insights team released a whitepaper, "Beyond the Hype of Big Data in Education". In it, our team of learning designer researchers and data scientists outline how data can be used responsibly to more effectively impact big data. The data mining and learning analytics processes outlined in the whitepaper demonstrate the type of deep analysis, consideration and empathy that Benchworks has been recognized for more than 20 years. With partnerships with more than 1,500 institutions of higher education, as well as with key program accrediting bodies for the departments that our assessments service, we remain committed to providing programs with nationally-normed assessments and benchmarking that help better understand what's working on their campuses and how to best facilitate improvements with innovative programs. One of the key takeaways from the whitepaper is that there is a difference between data and insights. Benchworks will continue to endeavor to provide robust, but accessible program insights - not overwhelm you with data. If you would like to learn more about how Benchworks program assessments can support your institutional and department initiatives, please reach out to your local Assessment Specialists.skyfactor - blog post
