The Assessment and Analytics team utilizes various tools and techniques to create models that can be used for analytics, visualizations, and decision-making (e.g. resource allocation).  Many of these models are created for specific purposes and/or to provide senior leaders with the ability to make evidence-based decisions.  Examples of our work in this area is described below.
