Context around lowest scoring areas is used with OpenAI to suggest a set of actions that the school/district administration could take to improve their scores. Administrators can review these suggestions and decide which actions to take based on their own unique context and circumstances.

Benefits of the new feature

The new feature provides several benefits to school/districts leaders and staff, such as:

Actionable Insights

The actionable insights generated by Ideas for Improvement can help administrators make more informed decisions about how to allocate resources and prioritise initiatives that will have the biggest impact on their schools.

Stimulate discussion

By providing concrete suggestions for improving areas of the school/district that received low scores, our feature can stimulate productive discussion and collaboration among school staff, leading to more effective and targeted action plans.

Data-driven progress

Our feature offers a way forward for schools looking to make meaningful progress in areas that need improvement. By surfacing the areas of need and leveraging the power of OpenAI to generate suggested actions, schools can take a data-driven approach to identifying and addressing issues, leading to measurable improvements over time.

Risks, Limitations and Inherent Biases

While this feature can be extremely helpful for schools, there are also risks and inherent biases associated with using OpenAI to generate suggestions. Here are a few important things to keep in mind:

Biases in OpenAI's models

OpenAI's models are trained on large amounts of data, which can include biases from the data source. These biases can include racial, gender, and other forms of discrimination, which may be reflected in the suggested responses. It's important to be aware of this and to consider the limitations of the data when reviewing the suggestions, just as you would if you were researching a new topic yourself on the internet

Impact of Suggested Actions

While suggested actions can be helpful we cannot guarantee that taking these actions will directly lead to improved scores in the relevant areas. Suggestions generated by OpenAI should be considered alongside other sources of information and the unique knowledge and context of the school/district administration.

Data Privacy and Security

When using OpenAI in this feature we share contextual information such as the pillar name and areas of need for that pillar. We do not pass any information that could be used to identify your school/district or any of your users

If you have any questions or concerns about the new feature, please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
