To access Kickboard Answers as a School or Kickboard Admin, navigate to Culture > Answers (Beta). If you are designated as a Teacher on Kickboard, follow these instructions.
Ensuring solid, consistent usage across your campus is important to making sure your Kickboard system is helping you meet your school culture goals. Seeing how the number of records entered by your teachers is changing over time can help you address any issues with consistent usage.
To see how much your teachers are recording in Kickboard, access the Staff tab by clicking Staff on the top left of the screen.
Next, adjust the time period for which you want to analyze the data. Click on the Time Period dropdown in the top right, then click on any two dates to select a range. Once the start and end dates are selected, click anywhere outside the dropdown to apply the date range filter.
Double check that you have all students, staff, and interactions selected. When you first log in to Kickboard Answers, the student selection will be filtered to only your default group. If you want to include all students, staff, and interactions, start by clicking Advanced Filters. Then click Check All for each dropdown to select all the available Interactions, Students, and Staff.
Now that all your filters are set, you will see the total number of records for each teacher listed in the Interactions column. To view how these records changed over time, click on the graph icon in the center of the page below the filters.
You will see a graph that includes data points for each day in the selected date range and a line representing the average positivity ratio for all of your teachers. You want to view the number of interactions, so change the Metric dropdown to Interactions. You can also adjust how the data is displayed by using the other options on the top right:
- Teams- Uncheck the Teams box to hide the summative line for “All Staff”
- Staff- Check the Staff box to show lines for each individual staff member
- Unit- To see fewer data points for longer date ranges, change from Days to either Weeks or Months
If you hover your mouse over a point on the graph, a pop up will appear describing that data point.
Want to view data for specific staff members or interactions? Use the Include dropdown to filter down to certain staff members and the Interactions dropdown to filter down to certain categories or specific interactions. Click Uncheck All, then check off only the categories you want to include. If you want to choose specific behaviors from within a category, click Show Interactions.
