The following is a visual tutorial for the new SIS system. Please know that this system is new and is still being continually developed, so there may be bugs and other such issues present.

Note: Some buttons and selections seen in this tutorial may or may not be present in your view of the screen.

You may find ‘Note’ throughout this tutorial noting some things you may have to work around. Thank you for your patience. We will update this tutorial whenever there are new changes/updates to the interface.

Note: If you are entering data for a semester OTHER than the current one, please make sure to change the semester being viewed by following the instructions below:

Click the Search Button

The Search window appears, which can filter for different criteria. Make sure that Term reflects the semester you want to work with, then hit the blue OK button.

On this Enrollments Landing Page, you should see a list of only your teacher candidates. Again, make sure it reflects the semester you are intending to make changes for.

To begin entering/editing placement data for a teacher candidate, click on the number shown under the Placements column, which will show:

  • 0 if no placement data has been entered and saved yet
  • 1, 2, 3, etc. representing all saved placements to date for this student this semester

Note: Please be aware that a new tab will open when you click on the number.
