How can we improve student achievement through data analytics?

The aim is to develop and deploy a prototype data analytics solution to improve student achievement in the Dubysa Upper School in Šiauliai region. The prototype will allow collecting and analysing information about students’ progress without wasting direct teacher and administrative time. The solution will help teachers to assess students’ progress, identify problem areas and tailor appropriate interventions and personalised support based on the recommendations for improving students’ achievements proposed by the prototype.


  • The school’s vision is to build a strong and innovative learning community that adapts to societal changes, stimulates students’ potential and prepares them to succeed in a global world. The school implements pre-school, pre-primary, primary and basic education programmes, enabling children to meet their cognitive and self-expression needs on a continuous basis, providing educational support and ensuring the harmonious development of the child’s natural abilities, fostering his/her spiritual culture and citizenship, and developing the competences necessary for the successful resolution of personal and social issues that arise in life.
  • The problem to be solved concerns teachers’ knowledge of pupils and their individual needs, and is directly related to the school’s functions, which, in order to be successful, require a good knowledge of pupils. However, teachers do not have enough information about pupils’ academic achievement, behaviour, cultural backgrounds and social environment, which can make it more difficult for them to take into account pupils’ individual needs and develop effective teaching strategies.
  • Teachers and administrators find it difficult to collect, organise and interpret information on students from different data sources. In addition, some data, such as data on pupils’ behaviour or cultural experiences, which can only be obtained from parents or other sources, are not known to the school administration in advance, but are crucial for the construction of educational content.


  • The solution will allow you to collect and analyse information about your students’ progress without wasting direct teacher and administrative time. This will help teachers to assess students’ progress, identify problem areas and tailor appropriate interventions and personalised support based on the recommendations for improving student achievement proposed by the prototype. It is hoped that the use of the digital solution will help teachers to better understand the individual needs and learning styles of their students and to apply effective teaching strategies.
  • The nature of the student work scenarios developed by the prototype will depend on the individual student’s performance: if the student’s performance is declining, the prototype will offer teachers student work scenarios based on the national recommendations.
  • The solution must include the possibility of automatic integration of data about the pupil held by the school, institutions or systems. The data on the pupil and his/her environmental factors must be categorised into different categories, e.g. learning achievements, social, economic, cultural family factors, specificities of the educational environment, etc. (the categories are not definitive and are only given here as an example; the kps will be agreed with the supplier).
  • The solution must be able to receive automated prototype notifications (to the administration, teachers, students and their parents/guardians) about student’s teaching/learning characteristics that do not meet/do not meet the School’s curriculum indicators for the current school year or other criteria set by the School (e.g., third consecutive month of declining average grades in a subject, etc.)A detailed description of the functional and non-functional requirements of the solution is given in the annex “Technical Specification” to the contract.
