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.

Doesn’t this sound great? Come to this session to learn how to do this and more, including finding or filtering for groups of students who need intervention from existing pre-built reports, and then building custom reports (e.g., spreadsheet-formatted reports) from other data sets currently in your system. We will also be featuring the creation of report templates, performance bands, simple filtering, calculations, report sharing, and devote time to discover where data resides in your Illuminate instance and to build your own reports with assistance. (Note: this session will not include advanced filters, advanced calculations, windows, or translations.)

  • Your district needs to have a stable nightly data import into Illuminate. This session is designed for those who know assessment data resides in Illuminate from state and local sources, but want to know how to pull it together into actionable form
  • Access to site-wide student roster would be advantageous

NOTE: If you have access to assessment data not currently residing in Illuminate (such as NWEA, F&P, BPST, iReady, etc.) and can bring it with you in .CSV format, we will describe the import process through Summary Assessment. Make sure all data sets include the student ID.
