Based in Boston, MA, Panorama Education is a data analytics company focused on K-12 education. They help school districts, charter networks, and state governments conduct surveys of students, parents, teachers, and staff. Their classroom surveys collect feedback that teachers use to grow, and their school surveys help educators improve school as a whole. They believe that stakeholder feedback is a powerful tool for improving schools. Panorama supports school systems through the entire survey process, from survey design to administration to reporting and analysis to follow-through. At the heart of their work is the Panorama Platform, a flexible, reliable, highly-secure, easy-to-use, and low-cost technology platform they built for conducting surveys in the school environment. With Panorama, schools can administer surveys online and on paper. The platform analyzes this data and presents teachers and administrators with clear and constructive feedback that they can use to improve their teaching and their schools. Clients can select questions from Panorama’s item bank or state-provided item banks, or clients can use their own questions.
Panorama currently runs large-scale survey and analysis programs in 4.000 schools across 26 states, with clients including Los Angeles Unified, the State of Connecticut, the State of Colorado, Teach for America, and Aspire Public Schools. In addition to its technology platform, Panorama provides implementation consultation, technical assistance, and training to its clients.
