Challenge: A client, with over 25 campuses and 20,000 students, received a multi-year grant to introduce quantitative evaluation of teachers based on student performance and other metrics.
Solution: Created a growth measure algorithm to set achievement targets for each individual student based upon past assessment performance and at-risk indicators.
Challenge: An alternative high school needed a lottery system for its unique population of students. The lottery required the matching of both parents and students, taking into consideration location and literacy levels.
Solution: Created a lottery system using a bespoke database system with a user-friendly Excel-like front-end tool to ensure client comfortability.
Challenge: A start-up network of schools needed a way to capture student skill mastery in a way a traditional grading system falls short.
Solution: Created a proof of concept analytics engine to visually display student mastery of skills based on assessments, student evaluations, and professor evaluations.
Flexible Finance Model
Challenge: A national non-profit wanted a dynamic budget model that could be manipulated to organize and view expenses by expense type, organizational team, program, and city.
Solution: Created a simplified budget model based off the client's system, pooled the information into a database, and created tools to filter, sort, and organize the financial data into columns and rows, at macro and micro levels, with simple mouse clicks.
