Add Value to your Process!
Process Qualitative Data More Efficiently, and with Greater Insight
Online course evaluations, student assessments, and employee engagement surveys can produce an overwhelming amount of open-ended response data.
Analyzing this kind of qualitative data can be a menial and inefficient process, especially when data analysis software is complicated and expensive.
At Kai Analytics we tackle huge qualitative text mining projects using statistical methods that save your organization time and resources.
The insights from our analysis add value to institutions and have been used for everything from curricular redesign, to sensitive issues around campus climate.
At Kai Analytics we don't seek to replace your team, rather we are here to support you and enhance your process, giving you the tools to excel for years to come.
Understand Student Intent
Prepare for Fall Enrollment
Campuses across the world have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. With more and more institutions preparing to return to campus in the fall, many are concerned about what this could look like for faculty and students.
We can help you understand exactly what those concerns are; identifying issues around campus safety and COVID readiness, options for on-campus vaccination policy, what mental health and support resources your students need, and what tools international students will need to succeed. We will provide recommendations based on student and faculty feedback so you can guide your institution.
Lets See an Example
Back in April we wrote a report on Prioritizing Student Concerns and Managing Institutional Change during COVID-19. We think we did a good job, and want to share it as an example of what the work we do for you might look like.
Every good Data Scientist knows that processing data is only half the battle. The real challenge is telling the story. Kai Analytics can do more than just develop and analyze surveys. We can summarize our findings in a visually appealing report that makes sense to non-experts.

How it Works in 3 Simple Steps
PRESENT YOUR DATA
Choose any format to present your qualitative data to our team.
ANALYZE THE TEXT
Once the data is gathered, our team processes the text for errors and redundancies. This makes sure that everything that was submitted is processed.
Our team will develop a clear, detailed summary of the results of your qualitative data analysis. In addition, we will provide recommendations for moving forward.
Whether your data is stored in online surveys, feedback forms, recorded interviews, Excel, Word, or another format, our data-agnostic method means that we can put your data to work.
Unlike other text analysis organizations, we don’t require clients to subscribe to a software service, train your staff, or add programming to your servers.
This means that you get the results faster, cheaper, and without burdening your team.
