Tile DashboardTop of Page

Illuminate is a powerful student information system that some find difficult use. I justified criticism is that it isn't intuitive - you need to know where to look for certain things. The navigation bar gives you clues (Students, Attendance, SpecEd, Health, Grades, Gradebook, Reports, Assessments), but there are many sub-menus within each category.

Illuminate has created a Tile Dashboard - shortcuts that will take you specific areas. I have created some tiles that I have shared out with teachers and some are even grade level specific.

One tile that has some helpful reports is the "View Favorites" tile. Among the various reports is a CAASPP Student Logins report that will allow you to download student cards for the CAASPP. There is also a Student Email & Passwords report that will give you a list of your students' gamil accounts and passwords.
