Otus enables educators and administrators to upload NWEA assessment data for students. This student information can be uploaded and viewed within the Analytics, 3rd Party module of the platform.
There are two options when it comes to uploading NWEA data:
➡️ Option 1: Follow the directions here to set up an automated process for uploaded NWEA data.
➡️ 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!
The Otus Student Performance Platform enables educators and administrators to upload NWEA data for students.
➡️ Step 1: Access Analytics
Navigate to the Analytics module. By default you will land on the 3rd Party Data page.
➡️ Step 2: Add a New Tile (if needed)
If this is the first time you've uploaded NWEA data you will need to create a new tile.
Find the + Add New tile at the end of the list. Select this tile.
➡️ Step 3: Choose the Company
Select NWEA map from the product list and click the arrow to the right.
➡️ Step 4: Download and Complete the Template
The next few screens will provide you with additional information about the NWEA combined data report and associated data, including an opportunity to download Otus' NWEA template, before heading to the screen where you'll be able to upload data for individual testing years.
➡️ Step 5: Upload the Completed Template
Click the upload button next to the year and in the season column from which the data were collected, then select the appropriate file from your computer to upload. (You can upload multiple years at a time before clicking the arrow to the right). Any icon with an 'up' arrow indicates a season that's ready to receive data, while a 'document' icon with an X will appear next to the terms that have already been successfully uploaded*. (*Note: clicking on a 'document' icon will give you the option to remove that dataset.)
➡️ Managing Uploads
You can manage and upload new NWEA data by selecting the ellipsis located in the upper right hand corner of the NWEA tile and choosing Manage Uploads.
