Rolling Release v8.8-8.9

Below are recent updates made in between official releases. As always, if you have any questions about a feature, please contact your Implementation Manager or Customer Support.

As of 6.3.16

[Enhancement] ISI: Course Request Meta Data is now live! You can create Custom Reports and Form Letters with any combination of Course Request information you wish.

As of 5.30.16

[Enhancement] ISI: No Shows: The “no show” process under Enrollment has been updated to better meet state reporting needs. 

What changed?

  • Users can select the effective date when no-showing the Enrollment record
.
  • Users can edit the effective date and exit code after the no show is created
.
  • Addition of ‘created on’ and 'updated on’ logging fields.

[Enhancement] ISI: Edit course part # has been released for both transfer and non-transfer grades.

[Enhancement] ISI: Short Term Substitute- Users can now create a “Short Term Substitute” permission in ISI and limit sub use to Attendance. Nothing has changed for long term/traditional sub rights in the system, but it’s now easier to have day-to-day subs access only the most necessary parts of the system on a temporary basis. The feature also works great for situations where in-school teachers need to sub for other teachers on the fly and only need access to take attendance.

For more information, see the Help document here.

As of 5.23.16

[Enhancement] ISE: Ever wondered who published an IEP? No need to wonder anymore, because with any IEPs published as of 5.23.16, this will now show! Note: Any IEPs published BEFORE 5.23.16 will state "Unknown".

As of 5.20.16

[Enhancement] DnA: Improvements to the Assessment Enter/Edit page. We wanted to make manual data entry in Assessments much easier and intuitive.

What changed?

  • The default landing page is now the GRID.
  • Fill down is supported with the GRID–just like in Excel (gasp!)
.
  • We got rid of “Enter Responses by Column” (because this is supported on the GRID)
.
  • The sub-navigation has been simplified to “By Grid,” “By Student,” and “By Question". 

  • Constructed Response has been consolidated into the "By Question”
 page.
  • You can filter for CR questions on the "By Question" page.
  • You can also filter for CR questions on the GRID.

For more information see the Help documents in the Student Response Data manual.

[Enhancement] DnA: Assessment Details Page- This page got a major facelift!

There are a number of changes:

  • The assessment title is a clickable link on each setup page that returns user back to Details
  • We made Step 1 for assessment creation much less intimidating by putting the non-required fields in a “more options” menu
  • We added an “administrations” area on the Details page that shows previous and pending rosters 
  • You can upload and download materials directly from Details
  • We added the points possible for each standard and question group
  • We re-ordered the page so that it makes more sense (administrations and questions are higher up on the page)
  • We added quick jump nav in the left margin to make navigating easier for users with small screens
  • Opening an assessment that does not have data brings user to Details page with dismissible modal (instead of the frustrating fake modal page)
  • Added buttons and shortcuts to setup pages from Details page

[Enahncement] DnA: Online Testing- We've added a Spell Check feature for Online Testing. Like other accommodations, you turn this on for the roster under Testing Tools. You can turn it on for the entire test or respect the item-level permissions. Students should see a “ABC” check on their toolbar if it’s been correctly configured.

[Enhancement] DnA: Summary Assessments/Demographics- Added HandsOnTable to Summary Assessments/Custom Demographics. It’s a grid that allows a user to quickly and easily enter data for multiple columns and multiple students all at once. We wanted it to be easier for users entering data into our Summary Assessments/Custom demographics, so we implemented the grid via HandsOnTable. This adds functionality similar to Excel–including dragging down values, tabbing, and autosaving.

[Enhancement] ISI: GPA Calculations: Users can now “bump” a student’s GPA post-calculation for AP courses. This meets some grading practices stemming out of the “Huntington Method”. Users wanting to use this calculation bump will need to reach out to their IMs so that it can be activated in their system.

As of 5.12.16

[Fix] ISI: GPA Calculations- A fix now ensures that a student's GPA shows the same in a mass transcript, as well as the ranking when using the same calculation.

Illuminate can now display the preferred name on local records (transcripts, rosters, etc.), but we must report the legal name to the state. This is a permission based feature: "View Reported Name and Gender Fields" & "Modify Reported Name and Gender Fields". These fields can be added via Custom Student Demographics.
