Center for Learning Analytics

As a society, we assess what we value. Within education, we use metrics and grades to give students, parents, teachers, administrators and communities a sense of what "good" looks like and how progress and achievement is defined. Through the intersection of the fields of Education, Statistics and Improvement Science, the Center for Learning Analytics (CLA) provides an evidence based framework for assessing locally defined educational priorities within San Mateo County to foster countywide progress and achievement. The CLA uses an interdisciplinary focus that recognizes computational, pedagogical, institutional, policy and social domains must be brought into dialogue with each other to ensure assessment and evaluation of organizational systems serve the needs of all stakeholders.
