A widget is a section of information in Homeroom. Some widgets just display information on a student or staff (i.e. Activities or Discipline). However, some widgets are more interactive (ie. Assessments or Student Learning Plans).
Every district decides if they do or don't want to provide a widget based on their needs and use of the data. Additionally, a widget can be made so that it is only accessable to certain Homeroom roles (i.e. District Administrators)
Depending the needs of the widget, below is a list of possible icons you will see in the widget toolbar.
Click the refresh button to begin again or gather current data.
Click the print button to print the information shown in the widget.

Click the upload button to create user-defined assessments and upload scores using comma separated value files.
Click the fullscreen button to expand the widget to full screen.
