An Administrator Dashboard


The purpose of this project is to implement a District Admin Dashboard feature in an assessment platform. This feature is to serve as an intermediary between the District, Schools, Teachers, Students, and their Parents, providing a centralized platform for managing and monitoring educational activities at the district level.

Product overview

The assessment platform aims to streamline communication and collaboration among district administrators, schools, teachers, students, and parents. The District Admin Dashboard feature will empower district administrators with comprehensive tools and insights to effectively oversee and manage educational processes. Key functionalities of the District Admin Dashboard include:

Centralized Data Management: The dashboard will provide a centralized repository for storing and accessing data related to schools, teachers, students, and parents within the district.

Performance Monitoring: District administrators will be able to monitor and analyze the performance of schools, teachers, and students through various metrics, including assessment results, attendance, and participation.

Reporting and Analytics: The dashboard will generate comprehensive reports and analytics on various aspects of the education system, such as student performance, teacher effectiveness, and overall district achievements.

User Research

A research was conducted to inform the design and development process by understanding user requirements and ensuring that the feature met their expectations.


  1. Identify the key user tasks and responsibilities within the administration.

  2. Understand the current challenges and pain points faced by district & school administrators in managing educational processes and communication across various stakeholders.

  3. Gather user expectations and requirements for the District Admin Dashboard feature, including desired functionalities, information display, and usability.

  4. Explore user preferences for communication methods, data visualization, and reporting formats.

I am not showcasing user interview data in this project to protect the privacy rights of the individuals involved. Revealing sensitive information obtained from user interviews could breach their confidentiality.
