Decision Mechanics, in partnership with Prism Decision Systems, have just completed a benchmarking mobile web-app for the New York Center for Rural Schools. The app, SchoolBenchmarker, allows school leaders to benchmark their schools against similar, but higher performing, schools.
SchoolBenchmarker is an HTML5/CSS3/jQuery Mobile application that draws data from a RESTful ASP.NET MVC 3 web-service.
Comments from users include:
SchoolBenchmarker is great! I love that it is so simple to use. In seconds my administrators can get the benchmarking information they’ve been asking for—information that would take an experienced database expert days or more to prepare.

SchoolBenchmarker is an awesome tool! Within minutes, I found two phenomenal benchmarks. I believe we will be able to learn a lot from these schools and will be contacting them very soon.
Terry Dougherty, Superintendent, Hancock Central School District
SchoolBenchmarker is fantastic! In a few minutes, I can get the benchmarking information it took my district a month to get last year working on our own!
