Otus Plans allows educators to create and monitor a multitude of different data points in a district-specific, itemized plan. This article specifically takes a look at analyzing the students' overall status of a Plan, which is found in the Status column
You can view and analyze the collective overall status data on any Plan from the main Plans page as well.
This Status column provides a quick snapshot of the overall statuses that have been given to the students in that plan.
For the purposes of overall status, Plans can be split into two categories:
Each have a different way of analyzing their overall status. Continue reading below for details
Overall Status is a Scale
An example of a Plan that has an overall status based on a scale is shown below.
➡️ Example: this Academic/Credit Recovery Program Pathway plan uses the following for a student's overall Plan status:
Hover over any section to see the scale level (Complete, in the example above), the number of students in that level out of the total number of students in that plan (2/14, in the example above), and the percentage
❓ What about the gray section?
Sometimes, students have been added to a plan, but there hasn't been any data tracked for that student yet. The gray section represents the students that haven't been tracked.
When you select the Plan, you will see the same overall status breakdown at the top of the Plan, along with the total number of students in the Plan.
💡 Tip from the Otus Team: If the length of text for the scale label is longer than the section it represents, you can hover over that section to see the details (name and student number) for that scale level.
Overall Status is a Point Value
An example of a Plan that has an overall status based on a point value is shown below.
➡️ Example: this Acadmeic Plan: Individual Reading Improvement Plan (IRIP) uses an overall status based on a point value.
In this example, the overall status gives you the following information:
Lowest point value: This is the lowest point value that has been given as an overall status on this plan.*
Highest point value: This is the highest point value that has been given as an overall status on this plan.*
Average: This is the average overall status point value.
❗ * The values you see here are based on the current data. Using the example above, if you were to update a student's plan to have, say, an overall status of 105, that "highest value" will change to 105.
When you hover over the overall status, you will see a popup that tells you how many students have not been tracked, and how many total students are in the plan.
In the example below: Out of 21 students on this plan, 9 of them have not been tracked (in other words, data has not been entered for 9 students).
When you select the Plan, you will see the same overall status breakdown at the top of the Plan, along with the number of students not tracked, and the total number of students in the Plan.
Hovering over the overall status bar also displays the students not tracked and total students data.
❓ Wondering why a Plan might have an Add Students button?
This indicates that this Plan does not have any students added yet. Click the button to begin adding students.
❓ Wondering why a Plan has a blank Status column?
Any Plan that is in Draft form will have a blank status column. Since the Plan hasn't been published yet, there isn't any data to display here.
