Exporting from data director, Importing into PowerSchool

  1. 1. Exporting From DataDirector Importing into PowerSchools Derek D’Angelo Eisenhower High School M.I.S.D. Data to Inform Instruction Symposium 9/23/2010
  2. 2. Part 1 You will only need to do this one time for each period you teach (unless you get a new student in your class) Create a template from PowerSchools for each hour.
  3. 3. Right click on an assignment. Select Export Scores Template
  4. 4. Rename & Save the file. I used the hour and then score template. It must end with _pst.csv
  5. 5. Part 2 Open up your template for the appropriate hour from Excel.
  6. 6. Go to DataDirector. Choose your exam. Click on the Classroom Performance Summary Report
  7. 7. Click on the Excel file icon to Download Report with Student Names.
  8. 8. Click Open.
  9. 9. Choose the sheet within excel that has the Class Data
  10. 10. Select the SCORES ONLY. Click the right mouse button and choose Copy.
  11. 11. Go to your SCORE TEMPLATE file in Excel that you opened on slide 5. Select the empty cells under the points column for the entire class. Use the right mouse button and choose Paste.
  12. 12. Choose Save As and name this file. Click Save. (Remember where this file is saved!) Be sure to leave _pst.csv at the end. Change Save as type to CSV. Click Yes on any message that appears after you save.
  13. 13. Go to PowerSchools. Right click on the assignment you are importing scores for. Select Import Scores.
  14. 14. Open the Excel file you just saved containing the scores. Click Open.
  15. 15. I already had scores in this column so I chose Overwrite Existing Scores. Otherwise, just click Import. You are done!
  16. 16. The issue I have found to be a problem is that if you do not run a Datadirector bubble sheet for a student it throws your scores off by a row after the student due to no score being in DataDirector. I believe this problem could be solved by running even an absent students bubblesheet with the rest of the class to create a temporary 0 for them so at least their name shows up in your Datadirector scores.
