              This is a feature of our platform, but comes at an additional cost. With the admin view, you get access to more advanced reporting, and you have it in real time. With the standard membership, you get monthly reports.

              How have other schools leveraged reporting?
              • One of our partners, College of Southern Nevada, used StudentLingo to measure learning outcomes. in a study, one class had access to StudentLingo and the other cohort did not. 92% of the cohort with access to StudentLingo earned a whole letter grade higher than the cohort without StudentLingo.
              • A lot of our partners use the data to justify funding for grants, operating dollars, or for new program development.
              • The evaluation data is particularly useful in identifying what type of learning students prefer and the qualitative takeaways from viewing the workshop.
              • Some of our partners use the data to connect with their student information system, like Banner or Peoplesoft. 
              • I think a great way to get started on how you want to use the data is to ask yourself some questions:
                1. How will I know if StudentLingo was successful?
                2. What do I hope students will gain from access to StudentLingo?
                3. What data is important for me to know in order to show that StudentLingo is a worthwhile purchase?
