Education Key Figures

Every student deserves contemporary, safe and personal education. That is why Kennisnet supports schools with ICT. Kennisnet provides a national ICT basic infrastructure, advises the sector councils and shares knowledge with primary, secondary and secondary vocational education (MBO).

Each Dutch Educational Instituut (MBO-school) is required to give insight on several parameters (Key Figures). These figures tells new students and their parents all about the quality of the school, the offered education, or the percentage of students that graduated. But, the figures were to complex for a layman to understand.

In this pilot ‘MBO Transparant’ — an initiative of the Dutch Ministry for Education — Design Effects created a concept (as part of a scrum team) to present the Key Figures in an accesible and visual way. The concept was expended with more funcionality; comparing one school with another, or to the national average. The first ‘information layer’ presented to the user contains the overal figure and a short explanation. This layer will mainly be consulted by students/parents. For schoolmanagers and Ministry staff indepth content is provided in collapsible elements.
