About Athena Analytics
Through working on our academic tracking software, the Athena Tracker, we have built a model to help estimate what a student would most likely have gotten in the Leaving Certificate in a normal school year, based on their previous results. This model is based on the results of 130,000 previous students, and all of their previous results.
These estimated results can be used as an unbiased, evidence-based estimate for schools, based on well researched and tested statistical methods. It will incorporate patterns specific to subjects and levels and will recognise outliers in students' previous results - ensuring no student is penalised for one bad result. More information available here.
Our usual State Examination Reports can also be used in assisting schools with understanding past results of this set of students at Junior Certificate level and past recent results of the school at Leaving Certificate. More information available here.
