This is an intro into our product updates for 2020.
Data widgets can now be accessed independently from the new Widgets Library in the Data menu.
Data widgets can now be viewed in full-page format showing the chart as well as the student data fueling the chart. These widgets can be accessed from the widget library as well as from other sections of Edis.
Users will be able to drill-down to widget details from dashboards and data stories.
Custom reports support a new Schedule View where users can flip from a student by student row to a more scheduled-centric view where each row has the student, teacher, course, period, as well as grades.
When linking a custom report column to a scale, Edis will automatically render a distribution widget that aggregates the column data based on the scale selected.
Custom reports can now be configured to regularle export data to third party systems like Qualtrics, Google Data Studio, Tableau, etc. This is an advanced Edis feature. Feel free to contact us via our Support Center to learn more.
Any two columns that use a scale can now be correlated in a separate quadrant-type of report using the correlate menu option. This tool will breakdown students into 4 quadrants based on the scale used.
Users working on interventions can visualize custom report data without leaving the intervention by going in the “Data” tab. Custom reports can be added to interventions under “Settings / Data Visualizations”. If done at the template level, then any subsequent interventions will already have the custom report linked to them.
Advanced custom reports analyze data points aggregated by different filter types instead of student by student. This is great tool for comparing groups of students at once.
Edis now supports aggregating data that’s collected in forms for more meaningful analysis.
When designing forms that use formulas, an inline validator checks for errors in your formulas like linking to missing fields, etc… This helps our users save a lot of time when designing complex forms that rely heavily on formulas.
When copying custom assessments that have multiple trials, users can now start in a new specific date. This is very helpful when users try create new custom assessments for new school year.
Our community faces an issue of enormous scale, and our hearts go out to those affected by the rise of coronavirus (COVID-19). At Edis, our mission is to help teams of educators, families, and students work with data with maximum productivity. Which is why we want to inform our customers about our support in the following areas:
A look at the most important features released in the January 2019 Edis Product Update: Universal scales; Embedding custom reports in RTI interventions; Excel formulas in Forms; Rich text in forms and data stories.
Collecting data using Forms and Spreadsheets is second nature to any district but it takes too much time. Edis Forms allows users to design student forms that load data points automatically before applying formulas to them. Saving districts plenty of data entry time and maximizing data quality.
