Student Data Analytics
Inquire. Analyse. Act

No more slow, frustrating, manual, reporting with limited capability. Time can be spent improving educational practice, not wrestling with data! EdPotential is web-based software that enables schools to inquire into assessment data, analyse it to identify strengths, gaps and opportunities for growth; and then act to target solutions that improve learner outcomes.

6 Top Tips for Faculty Leaders

Getting your department off to the best start possible when rolling out EP is key to achieving great outcomes. A consistent and strategic approach to embedding the platform into daily practice will have the best impact on staff workloads and ensure continuity of learning for students in these challenging times.

Welcome to EP for Senior.

Specifically targeted, curriculum-aligned senior lessons, practice exam papers, and rich data analytics across all core senior subjects! Each lesson is fully customisable and our platform is unique in its ability to integrate custom content and create a truly bespoke online learning experience in-class or as homework.

“My students love EP. Since we have started using it, they have been engaged with the self-paced activities and even love extending themselves by browsing more content and looking at other subjects. The data I get back is great for differentiating with extra support and offering extension work. I also love the ability to give feedback on the students’ learning as they progress.”

– Vincent Kruger from Beaudesert State High School
