Illuminate’s Business Intelligence (BI) Tool gives you the power to visualize your data and create advanced custom reports with complex logic and powerful calculations. The BI Tool is an advanced reporting tool that requires strong technical skills; some of the more advanced functionality (e.g., custom input controls) require SQL, but the vast majority of reports created with the BI Tool are created without any SQL. Learning the BI Tool will open up almost limitless possibilities for reporting in Illuminate, with the ability to create custom pre-built reports that end-users can generate and filter with the click of a button. By the end of the session, attendees will use the Illuminate BI Tool to create and share visually rich reports with district users directly in Illuminate using live data.

Prerequisites for the BI Tool

  • Must have district-wide access to your Illuminate Site
  • Must have experience creating custom reports in Illuminate (i.e., how to use grouping, filters, calculations, etc. in Illuminate custom reporting)
  • Must be comfortable writing formulas in Excel (or any other spreadsheet/database software)
  • Must be willing and able to dedicate time to learning the tool and building reports
  • Must complete the small tasks that will be emailed to registrants the week before the session

Illuminators that are responsible for basic reporting in Illuminate. If you are a savvy administrator or instructional coach responsible for reporting data, this session is for you! If you are interested in generating some deliverables, this session is for you!

This session is designed to take you from 0-60 when it comes to custom reporting. Whether you are a new client or one that really wants to “pop the hood” on how Illuminate is arranged, this session is for you. We will give you tools that will allow you to find the data you need, create templates for later use, and generate some cool deliverables based on the information you are trying to communicate.

NOTE: If you would like to create summary assessments of data that you do not currently house in the Illuminate system, you will need a spreadsheet with the data tied to a student ID in order to import.

You need to have a stable nightly data import and a good idea of which data sets live in your system. Examples include: MSTEP, MAP, DIBELS, F&P

Data can be imported into Illuminate one of the following ways:

  1. State/Known Data Imports (e.g., PSAT/SAT, MSTEP, NWEA)
  2. Automation (e.g., attendance, transcripts, programs)
  3. Spreadsheet data containing either state or local student IDs (e.g., Summary Assessment)
