Otus allows you to integrate NWEA data into the platform. In order to integrate this data, please click here.
To view NWEA data for a single student, navigate to the student profile.
From there, if they have any third party data, you will see an icon in the top left corner of their profile. This will take you directly to the student progress report for NWEA, shown at the bottom of this article.
Once you have uploaded your NWEA data into the platform, you may visualize this information in Analytics. To get started, select Analytics from the left side of the page.
Select NWEA tile from the list.
Choose the desired subject from the drop-down menu.
Choose the Growth Comparison Period from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down the page and you will find the Summary of NWEA Data. This summary details the count of students, the district mean RIT for the selected criteria, norm mean RIT for the selected criteria, and the average time spent on the assessment. From this view, you may select See Instructional Area Scores in order to view student performance based on a strand.
Immediately adjacent to Summary of NWEA data, you will find a pie chart that visualizes the students’ projected proficiency on the NWEA assessment based on the information that is uploaded in the dataset.
Scroll down the page to view a Group NWEA Breakdown based upon RIT. After selecting the desired subject, select the desired RIT category from the column labeled Overall Score.
You may select any student from the list and add them to a Flag in Otus by selecting Manage Flags.
Continue to scroll down the page where you will find an Individual NWEA Breakdown. You may scroll from left to right and select Student Progress to view a Student Progress Report for the selected student that will include their instructional area scores.
You now have the tools to analyze NWEA data in Otus and create flexible student groups with Otus Flags.
