Homeroom Dashboards - Container Tools
Once you have the basics of Homeroom Dashboards, here are some further tools available to users.
Depending on which container you are in, there are several different additional tools available to you. At the top right of each container, there are five options that apply to the entire container. Hovering in the container top bar will reveal all five icons.
The Gear Icon Displays three options:
Show Container Configuration allows the user to resize the container and change the display.
Split Screen the user can choose to display two tabs side by side. Make selections using the blue radio buttons and click OK.
The display then switches to a split view showing two displays side by side.
Print All allows the user to “print” the container by creating a PDF report with the displayed data included.
Additional Container Tools
The remainder of the container tools allow you to:

Screenview Actions and Options
Each tab within a container has a light gray gear icon at the top right, which will also provide access to several tools, depending on the data being displayed. You may see
- Data Settings
- Related Views
Data Settings: This tool allows for the selection of which specific data you would like to view, and for which student group. A pop out will take you through the steps, and after making selections, a new tab will open in this container to display the data.
Compare: This tool allows you to choose a second group of students, on the same assessment, to be displayed alongside the current group in a split screen format in order to “compare” the two data sets.
Download: Some tabs will give you the option to download the data being displayed. Here we see options to download as a chart, as a datatable, as a report or as a validation workbook. NOTE: Validation workbooks have several tabs, make sure you look at all tabs when reviewing data.
Related Views: This gives you the option to quickly and easily display closely related data. Looking at individual overall assessment scores? Click on “Stranded View” (hovering will give you the full title of the related view) and a new tab will appear with the same list of students and assessments, with available strand data displayed.
Zoom: Zoom in or out to resize the tab you are viewing.
Chart Actions and Options:
Hovering on the chart will display an additional gear with Chart Action and Options. The user can quickly make selections about how the data being viewed is displayed.
