EADMS Administrator Tips and Tricks

This session focuses on the primary EADMS contact at your district, also known as the EADMS Administrator. The EADMS Admin has direct access to the EADMS Team and is the "Go-To person" at the district whenever there is a question, concern, or suggestion regarding the EADMS software and the school district. If that's you, this session is mandatory. In this session our Customer Success Team will share with you Best Practices, EADMS Administrator rights, Bulk reporting, Account Management tools using the Account Management Utility, and other tips to make your lives easier and your system more efficient. Plus, hear about the EADMS Roadmap of what's to come!

LCAP measures can seem disconnected from the work that goes on in schools. Principals, teachers and support staff need to know how their efforts can and do impact LCAP indicators. IEBC’s data use model helps to make LCAP indicators useful and actionable at the school level. We start by teasing out what are indicators and what are activities. Then we help participants align their efforts with LCAP indicators. This presentation will empower educators to better align their work with LCAP expectations.

Brad Phillips and John Watson, IEBC

Data walls provide teachers and administrators the ability to visualize data so they can implement strategies for improving student performance. DataCation has automated the time spent collecting, organizing and maintaining data, and given educators the framework for visualizing student data using simple sorting, filtering and grouping options. The virtual data wall allows educators to easily identify a student or cohort in need of intervention. Users can then create and monitor individualized learning plans for your students. Don't miss this session!

With the adoption of rigorous content standards aimed at college and career readiness, students are expected to think differently and demonstrate mastery of skills and concepts in deeper ways. The Inspect® Interim Formative and Comprehensive End-of-Year Assessments meet the rigorous expectations of the new college and career readiness standards by including a variety of innovative item types. With more than 8 million students using Inspect® each year, we are able to analyze data to determine whether students showed improvement on their item type and DOK performance from one year to the next. With state-level, high-stakes test results available, we will share trends of student performance. We will also look at what research says contributes to success in student achievement and walk through how to make data-driven decisions to determine which areas are in need of more instructional focus.
