Qualitative Analytics for Higher Education

Discover How We Can Help Your Institution

Kai Analytics helps educational institutions understand the demands of their students, the concerns of their faculty, and the climate of their campus using custom text mining. 

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.

Quick, effective communication, left no stone unturned… Kai Analytics was able to analyze the raw comments from our respondents quickly to identify the biggest areas of focus. The report he produced was clear and provided us with the resources to draft an effective communique back to our community and implement the necessary changes.
