NAPLAN service analysis database eliminating spreadsheets
Best Performance is a Perth-based company that provides educational consultancy services to schools & teachers. One of their most popular services is a NAPLAN analysis service — school results are aggregated, compared, reformatted, and visualised to clearly show the school where it needs to improve.
Best Performance’s existing analysis process was based on copying and pasting raw data between spreadsheets, making it both time-consuming and error-prone. We suggested the data be imported directly into a relational database, and then aggregated/extracted/reported from there. The solution we built included the database, a software utility to import and correlate the result data, some predefined reports, and spreadsheet templates that automatically imported data from the database for further analysis.
The finished system reduced the time taken to process a school’s results from 4-6 hours down to about 20 minutes. This dramatically removed scalability constraints and enabled Best Performance to pursue an aggressive growth strategy, including looking at expanding the business interstate.
