Abstract
This project team is developing a prototype of a web-based data dashboard, the Virtual Research Assistant, for teachers to track student progress and success. The product will allow teachers to quickly and easily see if students are falling behind or are in need of interventions, and will include student reports and class-level data through threshold analyses, data mining and predictive analyses. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, and if teachers are engaged and able to integrate it within the classroom environment.
