There are two options when it comes to Uploading 3rd Party Data
➡️ Option 1: Otus uploads the data for you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your Client Experience Partner to discuss the data you would like to have uploaded, and we will provide you with further instructions. You can also check out this video from our Otus Live series for more information on how to share 3rd party data with Otus!
➡️ Option 2: Main Administrators can upload the data from within the Main Admin account, without needing to send it to us. The steps below will help with this option!

➡️ Step 4: Determine Assessments, Target Sets, and Benchmarks
You will now be on a page that allows you to upload different assessments that are administered from the same company. Each assessment can have multiple attempts, and it's up to your district if you want the attempts to be over time or by subject. If you want the Math, ELA, etc. scores to all be on one data table, you'd want to upload attempts by subject. Otherwise, you can upload the subject as the separate assessments, and the attempt names would be the different times over the years students took the assessment for a line graph that shows progress.
Now you can set up a couple target sets to help you see how your students are doing. Some tests are given a few times a year, and each time, the results are compared to different target sets. Also, some tests are given to multiple grade levels, and each grade level has a different target set. Because of this, you are able to add multiple target sets to switch between when viewing the data.
