Standards-Based Gradebook data is imported to eduCLIMBER either manually or via SFTP. Once imported, there may be numerous validations that need to be completed in order for the data to be aligned and visualized properly. The 'standards' are validated and then viewed as 'assessments' in eduCLIMBER. This lesson guides districts through validating their Standards-Based Gradebook data.
Before You Begin
This lesson begins assuming an Assessment Group and Parent Assessments have been created for the standards to be assigned as 'assessments' to. If these have not been created, please take a look at Creating a Custom Assessment.
Where to Start
- Select Uploads from the left side menu.
- Select Needing Validation.
- Double-select anywhere within the upload row that needs to be validated to open the validation window.
- Enter a standard's category/name into the search bar to filter for similar standards.
- Use the checkboxes to select standards that should be parented by the same assessment.
- Select Actions.
- Select Create Assessment.
- Use the dropdown menu to select a Category.
- Categories are defaulted in eduCLIMBER. If a district would like to adjust the Categories to visualize with additional or different terms, please Contact Support.
- Use the dropdown menu to select a Parent Assessment.
- Parent assessments may be included in the file to import with the standard. If so, they will appear under the Parent Assessment column on the validation screen.
- If not included in the file, Parent Assessments can either be:
- Added manually to the Assessment Group during validation by selecting the previously created Parent from the dropdown.
- Created later (do not select anything in the Parent Assessment dropdown) by following these directions.
- Select Create.
After all standards have been validated, the upload will automatically continue processing. If there are standards that were not validated and should therefore not be added/mapped in eduCLIMBER, select the Set Ready button to bypass those validations and prompt the file to process.
Now that the Standards-Based Gradebook has been validated, take a look at Understanding Academic Charts.
