Data Walls

Pull up multiple pieces of data on a group of students — discipline, grades, attendance, screening assessments, high school credits.

You have tools at your fingertips to leave comments, tag students, and more.


Accessing Data Walls

You can either pull up "basic" data walls that show you one type of data (e.g., literacy assessments) or you can make a "custom" data wall that shows you multiple kinds of data at the same time.


Basic Data WallsOne Type of Data

Use the 'Grade' or 'Class' tabs in eduCLIMBER's top menu bar to pull up a Chart. Then click the Data Wall button (upper right corner) to drill down and look at individual student data.

Custom Data WallsMultiple Types of Data

These Data Walls give a "whole child" perspective by lining up numerous pieces of data — discipline, attendance, letter grades, assessments, HS credits, etc.

When you make one, eduCLIMBER will present you with a bunch of options re: what you want to see on the spreadsheet. Once you set it up the way you want it, consider 🎥 saving your search (1:31). This will save you a bunch of time if you need to pull up a similar custom Data Wall in the future.

Early Warning Systems (EWS): Custom Data Walls are a big part of the EWS in our secondary schools. The videos below were created with that use in mind:



Adjusting and Using Data Walls

Once you've got a Data Wall pulled up, what now? You can watch this 🎥 basic overview (3:18), browse similar info. in a slideshow, or dig into the specific topics below.

Sort, Filter, Add Columns, etc.

⚠️ When you save your Data Wall (i.e., pin it to a Collection), make sure that you click the "Sticky Column Filters" button. That will save the tweaks that you made. Otherwise, you'll need to make the same tweaks every time you pull up the Data Wall.

Take Action

  • 🎥 Comment on a student (2:36). These student-specific notes "follow" the student across eduCLIMBER and allow us to have a running dialogue about the student vs. writing notes that get buried in a spreadsheet or a Google Doc.
