Data Analytics at GIIS

GIIS chain of schools in Singapore has a unique methodology to check the academic and non-academic progress of our students. We have devised methods and installed platforms which give us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.

Data Analytics in academics at GIIS is called the 7S method, in which teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development. This includes school, segment, section, subject, subject-teacher, student and summary. 

Data Analytics in Sports is called SPEDAS, where devices on playgrounds and on the student’s person, capture on-field movement which is converted to data.

Both data are then studied by the teacher to determine progress of the student in all areas of development, and an assessment is done which helps students understand their strengths and weaknesses

What's it like to be part of GIIS family

The schools emphasis on fair competition and recognising talent has instilled confidence in my son to excel.

“When I joined GIIS in 2018, I didn’t expect to make any friends and was really scared of not being able to catch up with the classes. But to my surprise, everyone here is really supportive of me and helps me to learn basic concepts again. I was really happy to have teachers who I can rely on when I feel really low and unmotivated with my studies. Even now, in my last final year of the IBDP, GIIS offers me so many great opportunities and gives guidance to those who don’t know what to do later on. I have truly enjoyed my time in GIIS. Even after I graduate, I will come back to say thank you to my teachers who helped me so much along the way.”
