4 A Trainer Should NOT be Expected to… Fix login or access issues – instead direct users to appropriate support Resolve data anomalies Answer questions about specifics of future product development Generate your own materials
5 Review Training Materials End User Training Agenda Dashboard Overview and Video Demo Key Objectives Guided Exercises Independent Time Wrap-up Discussion
6 Guided Exercises Partner Practice Trainers will lead the following Guided Exercises: Customize View by adding and removing data Create a Watch List of students for intervention Navigate to student view and find detail using the More Menu Guided Exercise Practice: Pair up with the person next to you Demonstrate the steps to complete first exercise Use the handout as a reference Then assist partner in completing the exercise Switch to the next exercise
7 Logging in to the Dashboard o Turn your PC or laptop on o Open Internet Explorer or Firefox browser o Go to https://tn-demo.cloudapp.nethttps://tn-demo.cloudapp.net o Select Your District o Log In Demo Teacher: Password: computer
8 Trainer Tips for Guided Exercises Based on time available and understanding of the audience, do 2-3 exercises together, including Customize View, Create a Watch List, and Navigate to Student View and find More details. Trainer should walk users through the steps using the anonymized site on the screen while users complete the same task on their own data Break users into pairs to complete the remaining exercises or encourage them to complete them on their own Ensure there is enough time at the end of training for the pairs to share their ideas for implementation with the rest of the users
9 Campus Debrief Questions What do you think the teachers favorite dashboard features will be? How can using the dashboards impact instruction and collaboration on your campus? How often will you log in to the dashboards and review student data? How often will you edit watch lists? What feedback do you have about the dashboards?
10 Applications for the EWDS Dashboard Individual Student Cross section of data Across students Across campus Put issues in context– new grading period, counselor/principal visits Student goal setting – set individual goals for benchmark performance Parent / teacher conference – print and share student dashboards Individual Education Plan meetings – preparation and presentation Targeted student interventions – supports thorough analysis PLC/departmental meetings – review benchmark and grading trends RTI committee meetings – identification and monitoring Intervention planning – TCAP prep, post-benchmark pull-out/push-in Truancy warning – identity and track students with attendance issues Campus tracking for at-risk students – create custom watch lists Student scheduling – credit accumulation, AP potential, course history Resource allocation – link budget decisions to greatest student need Campus improvement planning– identify and track areas of need
11 Training Delivery Debrief What do you need to prepare to lead dashboard training? What potential challenges do you see on training users on the dashboard? What best practices from other trainings apply to dashboard training? What type of follow up training will teachers need in the fall?
12 Organizing a Successful Training Best Practices Train in small groups – people maximum per trainer Keep sessions role specific to the extent possible – administrators, teachers, counselors Ensure everyone has access to a PC or tablet with good internet connectivity (e.g., computer lab, laptops) for hands-on exercises. Send an to training participants asking them to test their log-in in advance Who will have the responsibility for training logistics for your campus?

15 Dashboard Support Overview Level 2 (DLP): System errors New features and metrics Build support (data not refreshed) Level 1 (District): User access troubleshooting User questions and requests Verification of source data Support Plan Tiered support system Level 1: Data Stewards Level 2: Double Line Partners (DLP) Support linked through the dashboards to Data Steward from dashboard support button Follow up and resolve within the district if possible Data steward creates a JIRA ticket for issues that cant be resolved internally to share with DLP Training support Campus trainers have ability to help with potential user errors Tiered Support Issues
16 Examples of Data Issues in the Dashboards Student Student incorrectly is tagged as participating in program (e.g., SPED) Student is missing courses from transcript page Student data does not match expected results Campus/District Percentages of program participation do not seem accurate Students are excluded from a metric calculation Attendance, discipline, or grades are missing from the dashboards System Data has not been refreshed recently System is down Features are not working correctly (search, sort, add/remove columns, create watchlist) These are examples of data issues that may be seen in the dashboards. Data should match what is in Star Student as of the night before.
