ProLearning focuses on the use of evidence to improve student learning
The problem ProLearning solves
Many diverse factors influence student learning. Effective teaching and learning processes need to be informed by the full range of causal influences. ProLearning captures data and analyses it to understand the diverse factors that influence the learning of students, to inform improved learning and teaching — across schools and within schools — at the class, lesson, and individual student level.
Improving student learning and school performance
With ProLearning, the relationships between teacher grades, high-stakes exams, other assessments, attendance, behaviour, student engagement, aspirations, and attitudes, can all be incorporated into the analysis of learning across each student’s school journey.

The ProLearning business case and pledge
ProLearning will save your school time and money and create value by:
- Eliminating repetitive data extraction and processing that someone at your school currently undertakes multiple times every year, year-on-year.
- Ensuring school decision-making is not undermined by inaccurate or incomplete data.
- Providing a quantum leap in the quality of information that is targeted to staff across all roles in you school.
- Improving teaching and student outcomes.
ProLearning enables your school to analyse a wide range of factors that influence learning about individual students, as well as analyse the effectiveness of current programs and improvement strategies within the school. This will lead to the development of more effective teaching programs, which will benefit all students.
We pledge to offer our service in the subsequent year at no charge to any school that earnestly implements ProLearning, but has not saved at least twice the cost of the subscription they previously spent undertaking the same work using manual (non-automated) approaches.

What about privacy?
ProLearning is an integrated cloud application that ensures all data that could be used to identify individuals is fully protected. We are committed to meeting the highest standards of data security and privacy for all schools that use ProLearning. We ensure that best practice methods are used to address privacy and security requirements for the use of school data.
ProLearning contracts TELSTRA's Security Unit to monitor the security of both the ProLearning platform and all practices and policies required for maintaining all data in a secure state.
ProLearning data is stored in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. All aspects of the application that are not undertaken within the school use key data in a fully encrypted state within the Microsoft Azure Cloud. The Microsoft Azure Cloud has been Certified as meeting international security standards including Australian government standards, and is listed on the Australian Government Certified Cloud Services List (CCSL). The certification indicates that the Microsoft Azure Cloud is accredited against the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP), based on the standards specified in the Information Security Manual (ISM), and therefore meets government security requirements for data that is not classified as secret.
What about ProLearning pricing?

ProLearning and AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a computer system that performs tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as, visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, advanced analytics, and translation between languages.
ProLearning implements a range of AI strategies to:
- Translate your ordinary language questions into analytical questions.
- Make educational and analytical decisions about the best approach to analysing your data to answer the questions you ask.
- Learn from the data available across all schools to provide information about how to improve programs and learning for individual students in your school.
- Determine whether changes in your data represent ‘real’ educational changes or whether they are irrelevant 'noise' in the data
- Interpret the analytical output to provide you with answers in the everyday language of schools.
