Data Management Features Overview

Observation Data Access

This feature - only available in the School Admin and District Admin roles - allows administrators to create and save custom reports that can be run and exported at any time to enable a deep dive into observation results and instructional performance.

Account administrators have the ability to use several sets of filters and parameters to create a custom list of observations. Once a custom set is generated, administrators can run reports to export full data sets (.CSV files) for all observations included in the filtered list.

Data exports include teacher, observer, date, subject, formal/informal status, overall aggregated score, and submitted scores for each framework item.

What is the impact to each user type?



Individual Data Displays

All users have access to data visualizations – or the raw data behind them – straight from their dashboard, allowing everyone to take control of their professional growth.

Users are given a snapshot of relevant data points based on their user role. Every user role has two to three interactive displays, and the ability to export a .CSV file containing the full data set directly from their dashboard.

Evaluation Data Management

A feature that is configurable at the District Admin level, with some management capability at the School Admin level, the Evaluation Data Management features allow administrators to configure and manage summative evaluation systems – or any professional growth data – from setup to reports, in one easy-to-use system.

The four-stage workflow makes configurable summative data system easier to manage than ever. Bring in any externally generated data, and pull observation data directly from the ADVANCEfeedback® tool.


Configure Systems

In this step, the account administrator can setup the components of an evaluation system, including weighted sub-components or data points under each category. The result is a clear map for how each data point will be weighted as part of the evaluation system, and who is responsible for providing that data point.

Group Users 

This tool allows administrators to quickly and easily filter users into groups that can be aligned to evaluation systems. This ensures that the correct evaluation system is applied to specific individuals as needed, including those other than teachers (school administrators, coaches, specialists, etc.).

Manage Data

Data points can be provided via batch upload through a CSV template, and/or managed manually at the individual level. Data points can be assigned during configuration for management by the School Administrator, or pulled in from ADVANCEfeedback® automatically. Custom database integration is available as an extension of scope during implementation.

Generate Reports 

Reports can be generated in PDF format displaying aggregated data or in full, raw datasets via CSV. These reports can be generated at the account, subgroup, school, specialty, or individual level by the account administrator and the School Admin role.
