How do I save or back-up student data?
There is two options to save data for students:
1. Print all of the individual reports (but it does not include the parent report-those will have to be printed individually).
2. Export data into a csv file.
Printing a complete file of individual student reports can be accomplished by logging into your account, clicking on the Reports tab, then the Individuals tab. Next, scroll down the page past the list of student names to the “View All Individual Reports” link. When you click on this link the reports will be available to print as one continuous report. It won’t be as nice a results as printing the reports individually, but it will give you a single document to print.
You can print either a hard copy or choose to print the document, and then choose the option in the printing option to save as a pdf.
If you login to your account and click on the Reports tab, then the Individual’s tab, you will be directed to a page with a list of your students and the assessments they have taken.
If you click on a student name, there in the upper right hand corner of the page will be a selection option that includes This Year, Last Year, and All Data. If you select the This Year option, you will only be able to view the assessments the students has taken for the current academic year.
To export data, login to your account, go to the “Reports” section. There is an option under the “Groups” and “Individuals” tab to export all of your test scores into a CSV file (this option also exists for Benchmarks tests). Select the “All Students” then select the “Export CSV” option. A CSV formatted Excel file will appear on your desktop. A .csv format (Excel), means a document has no formatting associated with it.
Now, in the Excel file, go under File (in Excel) and select “Save As” and save a copy of the document in the regular xls format. Here you will be able to add formulas and manipulate the student data.
With this document format, you can calculate things like average scores for your class, and compare those to the score associated with the 50th percentile (‘on-grade performance’). If you are unsure how to calculate these or which formulas to use in Excel, please do a Google search for instructions.
