An update to a story InsideSources reported in September.

The Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) has just announced the winners of a competition designed to improve data visualization for school performance reporting.

While every state is required by federal law to produce a report card for its schools, research has shown these reports are difficult to interpret. Improving data visualization is an important step for parents, teachers, school administrators, elected officials, researchers, philanthropists, and many others who will benefit from clear, easy-to-understand data.

Patricia Levesque, CEO of ExcelinEd said, “Designers and innovators from around the nation stepped up to the challenge to transform the way accountability information is communicated about our nation’s schools. Using the power of design, we can help states convey school performance data to parents simply, clearly and effectively.”

The Grand Prize of $15,000 went to Collaborative Communications + Social Driver, and the Runner Up Prize of $10,000 went to Rennzer.
