The Views Tab manages the data visibility options for users.
PRINCIPAL DATA VIEW OPTIONS
Under Principal Data View, there are two options:
1) Principals may view only their campus data
2) Principals may view summary, comparative data on other campuses
If Option 1 is selected, principals will only be able to view data on their own campus(es).
If Option 2 is selected, principals will be able to view campus summary, comparative data on other campuses. This does NOT allow principals to view individual students or teacher summaries on other campuses.
Note: Whatever is selected for principals should have no impact on teacher view options.
TEACHER DATA VIEW OPTIONS
Under Teacher Data View, there are two options:
1) Teachers may view only their students' data, compared with the campus and district summaries
2) Teachers may view summary, comparative data on other teachers on their campus
If Option 1 is selected, teachers will be able to view their own teacher summary data plus summary level data for their campus and the overall district.
If Option 2 is selected, teachers will be able to view summary, comparative data on other teachers on their own campus. This will NOT give access to teachers to view campus summary data on other campuses.
Note: In both options for teachers, teachers will ONLY have access to individual student data for students rostered in one of their classes.

- Log in as the Systems Administrator.

Third-Party Answer Sheets - Check the option to keep original numbering.

Subsequent selected response questions will continue with the next number in sequence skipping the numerical response question.
Checking the box will keep the original numbering in numerical sequence in the booklet.
Note: When copying a state-released test you will need to use original question numbers for scoring.
