All About Dashboard Widgets
The Illuminate Dashboard houses a variety of widgets for customization of the data a user wants to see upon login. Below is a short description of each widget, along with the features you can use within that widget.
All widgets that have an Adobe symbol in them allow you to print this single, specific snapshot of information for the student versus printing the whole profile.
What Data Does Each Widget Display?
Below describes each available widget depending on the modules enabled within your site. Some widgets display data that needs to be imported into the site first. Widgets may take up to 24 hours to update and display properly.
The Assessment List widget shows all assessments recently created or edited (including score uploads). Once student scores have been uploaded you will see the number of student scores in the Tested column. You can adjust how many results to show or click to the next page. This list also honors the filters set on the 'List Assessments' page. To change that filtering, click the link at the bottom of the widget.
The Attendance widget shows Truancies, Absences and Tardies for all of your rostered students in both numerical and graphical format. This is an Illuminate Student Information widget.
The Class Roster widget displays a single class roster at a time, you can select which from the dropdown menu at the top. You can also search for a student within the widget. If you click on the student's ID number you will be taken directly to their student profile. If you click on the icon in the GB column it will take you to that student's scores in the gradebook. If you click on the icon in the Att. column, it will allow you to see an attendance report for that student.
The Demographic Distribution widget allows you to see the demographic breakdown of a particular group of students in graphical format. This widget displays groups like English Learners, Special Education, Gender, etc. Use the dropdown menu to change the group you would like to see a breakdown for. Click on the bars for a Student Count, Percentage, and a list of students.
The Favorites widget allows you to mark assessments or reports as a 'favorite' which will display in this widget for single click access. The gold star indicates it is a district favorite, the silver star indicates it is your favorite.

The Year-to-Year Rollover Counts widget shows, as a percentage:
Enrollment: The number of students with enrollment records in Illuminate for 14-15 compared to 13-14.
Roster: The number of students with roster records in Illuminate for 14-15 compared to 13-14.
Users: The number of users with affiliations in Illuminate for 14-15 compared to 13-14.
If the percentage is >/= 80, then the bar will be yellow. If the percentage is >/= 90, then the bar will be green.
The widget is also "site" aware. So if you are logged into a specific school, you'll see the rollover status just for that site.
