Abre vs. eduCLIMBER

Do both platforms offer data-as-a-service? How do they take work off my team’s plate?

K-12 Data-as-a-Service (Daas) solutions allow you and your staff to breathe a sigh of relief. They don’t just provide dashboards, they set you on a path to success when it comes to understanding what’s working and what’s not within your district.

eduCLIMBER does not offer DaaS, so you will likely get stuck at frequent moments in your data journey. You’ll spend more time wrestling with the data and trying to make it fit within platform needs providing you less time taking actionable steps that support student success.

Abre invented DaaS for K-12. As your partner, Abre guides you through developing a solid foundation for your K-12 data and building upon each step to take it to the next level—in a manageable, sustainable way. Abre does the heavy lifting of consolidating your data and making it usable. No matter how messy or raw the data file is, we create formats and data visualizations that are easy to share and understand. You’ll have more capacity to focus on what matters most: your students.

Who is responsible for importing the data?

eduCLIMBER puts much of the responsibility of data management and manipulation on the district while Abre takes it off your plate through data-as-a-service.

With Abre, just hit export and send. The DaaS team does the rest.

Can student data be easily understood and accessed by all stakeholders on both platforms?

Both eduCLIMBER and Abre provide easily understandable dashboards accessible to administrators, staff, families, and students. However, community partners are not provided secure personalized access to EduCLIMBER.

Additionally, Abre users utilize a single sign on link for login while EduClimber users have separate links potentially leading to confusion.

What type of data does each solution allow? Do they collect data natively?

Both platforms allow you to import data from other sources and use their platform for native data collection. However, eduCLIMBER only accepts data in specific formats with limited data point types.

Abre is a completely open system platform, meaning we can accept data in any form and you can input as many data point types you need.

Which platform is easier to use?

Due to eduCLIMBER’s lack of interoperability, the product is harder to use and there are more chances for delayed synchronization and self-managed data manipulation.

Abre was designed to be an extension of Google for Education, and you’ll find the user experience to be intuitive like Google. With one product for the entire process, getting to actionable data becomes a seamless experience.

Does each stakeholder group get dedicated dashboards?

eduCLIMBER does not provide dedicated dashboards for different stakeholders, such as administrators. Administrators must navigate the dashboards alone to find the data points they need, instead of having it served to them.

Abre provides tailored dashboards to each stakeholder group with views like District360, Building360, Class360, and Student360.

Can you personalize the visualizations for my district?

While eduCLIMBER has nice visual dashboards, they are stock dashboards—meaning, you’ll get standard dashboards like everyone else that are not tailored or personalized to your school.

Rather than providing you a menu of stock dashboards and data visualizations, our Data-as-a-Service model means Abre partners with you to understand your needs and create dashboards with the exact type of visualizations that you need. Plus, our strategic consultants are experts and former educators. We’ll help you through the entire process and leverage our experience with hundreds of schools across the country.

Can you layer data points on top of one another to identify causation and correlation?

eduCLIMBER and Abre both offer triangulation of data, or dimensional dashboards, meaning that you can combine two or more data points to identify causation and correlation.

However, eduCLIMBER has limits to the data points you can bring together. Because eduCLIMBER is made of various products that aggregate into the eduCLIMBER dashboards, you can only bring specific data points together to create new visualizations.

With Abre, any data points can be put together to identify causation and correlation. You can add additional filters (layers) to your data to test hypotheses.
