The Overall Results Metrics Cart chart provides an overall view of students based on a metric definition.
Where To Start
To view the chart, open the Metric Analysis Menu and choose Overall Results.
Step 1 – Choose the Metric
Metric (required) Defines the levels for the Metrics Analysis charts. Users can choose from our preset metrics or build their own. Instructions for building a metric are here.
The first metrics dropdown filters the choices of metrics by type. The options are All Metrics, My Metrics, Assessments, Attendance, Graduation, EWIF and Favorites.
The metric is chosen from the second metric dropdown. Typing in a few characters in the menu will limit the metrics listed.
The screenshot below shows a choice of the Daily Attendance Metric.
Step 2 – Choose a Filter (optional)
Filter - Limits data in chart to a subset of students, i.e. ELL students [in my school or class]. Click Filter at the upper left to see the filter menu. If a filter was used in defining a metric, it will be automatically used for this chart.
Click Execute Chart to view the results.
The pie chart displays the number of students in each metric level. If multiple data points are used to define the metric, each student will be placed at the lowest level s/he has met in the metric. For example, if a student has 3 data points in the Outstanding category and 1 in the Almost On Track Category, s/he will be displayed in the Almost On Track Category.
The chart can be printed by clicking the print icon at the upper right of the chart. The data aggregates can be downloaded into excel by clicking Aggregates, also at the upper right.
Clicking on a piece of the pie chart will display a student list with all of the students in that level. The list will contain the student name and ID number, the metric level and other demographic information.
The menu located at the upper right of the student list allows you to Search the list, Download the list, Show/hide the columns in the list and add the students in the list to a group. Clicking the clicking the column header sorts the list by those column values. Click on the student name to view the Student Profile page.
Students can be added to an existing group (choose from the dropdown) or placed in a new group (click the plus sign to create). Click Add when done.
Step 3 – Save the Chart (optional)
Charts can be saved for later use. To save, click Save. If the chart is new, you will be prompted to click Save As.
You will be prompted to name the chart, choose if you want to share it with others or add it to your Dashboard. The ability to share charts is based on the account permission level. School administrators can share charts with users in their schools, district administrators can share charts with schools in their districts.
Once saved, choose Load chart to see the chart at any time. Choose the chart from the dropdown and click Load.
