How do I create an assessment outcomes template?

As an Elevate K-12 Analytics admin, you can create an assessment outcomes template for the performance levels used by your school such as your MTSS (multi-tier system of supports). An assessment outcomes template contains performance level names and colors for each level.

You can use the template to map your assessment outcomes to any vendor's assessment family reporting methods. Users can then view normalized assessment data.
