SchooLens Dashboard

Introducing SchooLens — A Solution to Your Data Analytics and Reporting Needs

 

NJCSA is pleased to present SchooLens — a robust and functional data dashboard about New Jersey’s charter schools, designed to enhance a school’s ability to perform quick, powerful, in-depth analysis of its state performance and demographic data. The only interactive data dashboard of its kind in New Jersey, SchooLens allows schools to:

  • measure standardized test scores against the Charter School Performance Framework (the basis for charter school renewals);
  • compare itself with any other public school (traditional or charter), as well as with districts or customized collections of schools;
  • report performance and demographic school data in an easy-to-read infographic; and,
  • easily output charts and reports as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets available for download.

Developed especially for charter school administrators to report on their school’s performance to multiple stakeholders, SchooLens:

  • quickly and accurately answers key questions from members of the media;
  • explains data concisely to board trustees without pages and pages of spreadsheets;
  • provides relevant data to potential and current parents in an understandable manner; and,
  • compiles data that may be required by lenders or grantors.

SchooLens can calculate your school’s performance data in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take for personnel or consultants to synthesize the data publicly available through NJDOE. NJCSA members receive a discounted annual subscription for SchooLens.
