EdAnalysis works by measuring the extent
to which HSC course has contributed positively or negatively
to a student’s overall UAI result.
We start by integrating the Board of Studies scaling on
each subject for every student: this is the Student
Analysis. From these results we are then able to measure
the effectiveness of each subject for each individual student
on a zero sum paradigm. Thus for every subject that is beneficial
one mark to a students’ final UAI, there is also a
subject that has been correspondingly detrimental one mark
to that students’ final UAI result. This analysis
produces adjusted, post-scaled marks for each subject in
the column marked “Barr Index.” We are thus
able to accurately see the performance of each student in
each subject on a common scale - that being the statistical
contribution of each subject to the final UAI result.
Moving from the individual student analysis to the Subject
Analysis, we collate the results of each individual
student in each subject into subject reports. We are then
able to see the overall strengths and weaknesses of each
subject for that particular year on Subject Scatter Graphs.
Schools often find the subject analysis the most useful
section of our report as it allows the full picture of the
results to be observed and future plans to be developed
