March Partner Update: Skills Navigator

As always, we’re excited to share the news about updates to Skills Navigator®. The following improvements are effective on Monday, March 20, 2017.

Search Option Move Makes Room for Larger Reporting Area
The search and filter options have been relocated to the top of the screen throughout the Skills Navigator application to make the reporting area larger and easier to view. This also reduces the number of clicks required when doing a search.


Creating Student Assignments Just Got Easier
You can now create mission assignments directly from the Heat Map instead of going through the Assignments tab first. Just click on a student skill status in the Heat Map, then select “Create Assignment” from the pop-up box. This will take you directly to the Assignment screen with the student and skill details pre-populated.


You Asked, We Listened—Student Interface Updates

In response to partner feedback about making the student interface more appealing to older students, we’ve renamed the subject areas in the student Mission Control using the general subject names in place of the previous “lands.” We have also added many new avatars for students to choose from.

Student Reading Levels at Your Fingertips
It’s no longer necessary to select a grade level when using the reading donut charts on the educator dashboard. This new process makes it simple to find the reading levels of all students in a strand.


System Maintenance
Visit the system maintenance schedule on NWEA Connection for complete details on planned release and maintenance downtime.
