Measuring and tracking data
& trends for schools around the world.
THE ENROLMENT SNAPSHOT | 2023
The Enrolment Snapshot is a tool that helps school leaders and their teams understand how their enrolment compares to wider regional and global trends.
With so many surveys taking up so much time to complete, we have designed this tool to be as simple as possible. In fact, we are only looking for one data point - the opening enrolment number. We believe that this one metric is key when it comes to understanding how well we are doing compared to other schools around the world.
How do we define “opening enrolment”?
It can be frustrating to find that one school counts opening enrolment differently to the next. This can lead to unreliable data that doesn’t reflect the reality of what is actually happening. We have therefore defined opening enrolment as the actual number of students attending school on 15 September. In other words, it isn’t the number of students attending plus students who are going to join later in the year. Neither is it the number of students you wish you had!
So what data will I be asked to provide?
To participate in The Enrolment Snapshot 2023, you are required to submit contact details, the name of your school, and the Opening Enrolment for 2023.
There will also be the option to add the Opening Enrolment for both 2022 and 2021, if you have these details to hand. Adding this additional information will allow us to analyse trends. We will also ask your permission to publish this information for others to see.
How will we share the data?
The Enrolment Snapshot 2023 deadline has been extended to 29 October, 2023 and we will publish a Report for all participating schools in early November.
The Report will:
list all schools and the data that they have provided by region
Draw some summary conclusions and trend analysis, as far as this information is available.
The Report will remain a resource that will be updated annually.
Note that schools that do not participate will only be able to access general information and trends.

We are delighted to announce a new partnership between [YELLOW CAR] and the Learning Analytics Collaborative by Consilience™. By working together, we will be able to ensure state-of-the-art visualisation of results.
In practice, this means that each school will be able to log into a secure platform and see the evolution of their enrolment compared to what is happening in their region and on a global scale. At the same time, schools will not be able to see the current enrolment of their individual competitors.
