Setting Metric Visibility and Names (Metric Settings)

Metric Settings give you control over what is displayed on your dashboards for each metric. Using Metric Settings, you can:

  • Choose whether a metric should display on your dashboards (hiding products you don't use, for example), and you can limit specific metrics to particular schools.
  • Set district-wide and school-specific goals for each metric. The goal determines the color of the overall results and categories in the bar graph view (green for meeting the goal, red for not meeting the goal).
  • Describe each metric using terms that your leaders and teachers are familiar with. Specifically, you can edit metric names and definitions.
  • Add one link for each metric to go to another tool or resource.¬†

How to Navigate to Metric Settings

  • Click the gear icon on a tile to go to the settings for a specific metric.

How to Use Metric Settings

Visibility Settings

If you are viewing the list of all metrics, you can toggle the visibility on or off for each metric.

You can also use the check boxes to choose whether to display each metric for all schools or for all schools at a specific level. If the Display boxes for schools are not checked, the metric will display on the District Profile only. Please see the table below for details.

In addition, you can choose to display the metric for particular schools, which limits what is shown on the school-based dashboards (School Profile, Our Students, and Student Profile). To do this, select in the last column for the metric and select and deselect schools.

After you make changes to the visibility and display settings, be sure to select Save. Your changes may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

The table below outlines what will display on each dashboard based on your selections.
