Data Driven Discussions – Data Analytics Tools for Schools: Using Data to Improve Education

In this episode I interview Maya Hope, the VP of Product and Data at eSpark, which provides educational software tools to schools. In recent years, data has become a big part of how schools are run and has started to change the way teachers approach education. Maya is an expert in both data and education and tells us about how data is used to make decisions for students, teachers, and schools.


In this discussion we’ll learn a lot about education, including:

  • How does data permeate the education industry? (1:42)
  • What metrics are utilized in the education industry? (3:44)
  • How do we evaluate the efficacy of an investment in education? (8:52)
  • Were you ever misled by the data? (13:34)
  • How do you utilize data without numbers? (15:58)
