ReContext has developed a data analysis tool (Polarys) for school administrators that demystifies the process of using student assessment and demographic factors to compare school performance within context. That's been a missing piece for far too long, which is why we're so enthusiastic about Polarys and the difference it can make for educators who need to develop context-specific school improvement solutions.

David Adler and Mary Westervelt are the creators of Polarys. I recently had the opportunity to interview them to learn more about the inspiration for designing such a powerful data analytics tool for educators.



Having worked in ed tech for over 25 years, I've never seen a data analytics tool like Polarys. It provides a remarkable pathway to compare context-aligned schools to determine where success is being achieved and fosters collaboration among educational leaders. That just makes sense!
