How to view video closed captions and transcripts

In Little SIS for Classroom, delegated users can create customizable groups of students to monitor classroom metrics at a high level in a group setting. These groups are called collections. A key feature of collections is the ability to peer into the metrics for the whole collection, part of the collection, or an individual student. You can then use the information to make decisions for the students in the collection.

Once given permission, delegated users can create a collection for any subsection of students they can access: at-risk students, AP students, English Language Learners (ELL), individual learning plans, or any other grouping. For example, if you want to see how your AP students are doing with their classwork, you could build a collection just for them or create a collection based on individual learning plans. The possibilities are endless!

Because the collection centralizes data in the collection, this feature makes it easier to find data related to a plan or intervention put in place for students. Use the data to determine whether the current plan benefits students or needs additional interventions.

Note: It is important to point out that Collections do not change where any data resides. This feature introduces a new way to manage and drill down on that data.

Neatly Arranged Collections

Student collections appear together in an intuitive and clear interface. Collections is where you create collections, add students to, and remove students from collections. View a collection card to access actions for the collection. To keep your Collections tidy and organized, users can create up to 12 Collections, each containing a maximum of 250 students. Delegated users are encouraged to structure Collections in a way that makes sense for their school or institution.

From Collections, delegated users can:

  • View existing Collections

    • Super admins can see all available Collections

    • Delegated users can see only Collections they have created

  • Create a Collection

  • Add students to a Collection

  • Remove the students included in a Collection

  • Refresh Collections

  • Select a single or all Collections

  • Edit, view details for, or delete Collections via a menu for each collection

Drilling Down Through Collection Data

The power in Collections is having student metrics in a centralized location and being able to look at that data across the collection, across a subsection of the Collection, or individually by the student.

  • Whole Collection: The Collection level is the highest level to view collection data. The collection houses data for all students in the collection.
  • Collection Subsection: From the Collection level, delegated users can isolate and view aggregate data for some students in the collection.
  • An individual in the Collection: Any delegated user can dive deeper and look at a single student and their classwork. Users can view the data without pivoting between Student Explorer and Collections.

Here is an overview of the layout of the Collections interface:

Refresh Collection Data

Once your Collection is built, the data refreshes nightly. A refresh is available to gain real-time data in the interim.

Easy Navigation Between Individual and Aggregate Data

Move conveniently from whole Collection data to data for a subsection of the Collection and down to data for a specific student.

From the Classwork Summary users can:

  • View aggregate data for students in a Collection individually or as an entire Collection

  • Filter aggregate data by this week, last week, last 30 days, and last 60 days so you can look at anything in the future

  • Open a single-student view for any student in the Collection directly from the Collection

  • Select specific students within a Collection to dive deeper into aggregate data for only those students
