    Abstract

    Repertory grid tools systematically collect data that consists of a topic,
    its elements, constructs and element ratings. Gaining meaningful insights
    from repertory grids data is a challenge because data analysis is timeconsuming
    and a significant mental effort is needed. Visualizations aim at facilitating
    data analysis through a visual and interactive approach, which allows users
    to understand their data, reflect, and make better decisions. This paper presents
    an interactive visualization tool for teachers and students. The tool visualizes
    repertory grid data using two dashboards, where teachers and students can
    investigate constructs and rating elements of students at the individual or group
    level. Visualizing the repertory grid data is an initial attempt towards teaching
    analytics. Future work will focus on evaluating the tool in a real setting with
    teachers and students, and collecting suggestions for improvement.
