Charts are designed to enable you to share your data visually, clearly, and concisely. Charts may be used in Homeroom Dashboards to display in a container, as a browser bookmark, a link in Logins and Link, or as email distributions. You can use these charts to show student growth evidence for TPEP, display assessment results for your school improvement plan, or compare the performance of schools for your Board Meetings.

HIDE AND SHOW DATA ON A CHART (QUICK LINKS)
To better isolate specific data, the Chart Manager application has the ability to hide and show chart data. For instance, if the chart rendered includes data on all services, but the user is only interested in the Free and Reduced lunch service at this time, all other services can be hidden. Or maybe the chart just has too much data to be read accurately; hiding some data will allow the user to better see some data points.
After rendering a chart, click the specific piece to hide in the chart's legend.
Removing all the performance levels (because the goal doesn’t have to be tied to a performance level) makes the goal stand out.

To edit, create shortcuts or delete favorites, simply locate the chart and click on the Action Gear.
