Measuring Student Engagement During a Pandemic with LAUSD - DMV

Providing learning and support for students has been a challenge for school districts during the COVID-19 pandemic. Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) was in need of new ways to measure attendance, student engagement, and learning success.

LAUSD uses a variety of applications for the student learning workflow, including Schoology, SeeSaw, NearPod, Edulastic, Eureka Math, Discovery Science, Great Minds, Benchmark, Renaissance, Amplify and others. Each of these applications has basic reporting capabilities, but LAUSD wanted to measure all student engagement with a single pane of glass.

During this session, we’ll describe how Red Pill Analytics and LAUSD used Snowflake’s Data Cloud to measure the engagement of over 450,000 students. You’ll have the opportunity to learn and ask about…

  • Why Snowflake was selected for this initiative vs. their legacy on-prem data stack
  • LAUSD’s modern data stack, including Fivetran for data ingestion, Data Build Tool (dbt) for data pipelines, and Tableau for the analytics experience
