UTIPS Data Purge – How to Save Your Test Scores

It has come time again to do a little preventative maintenance on our UTIPS server. We need to delete or purge the test results from all of the tests that you administered in UTIPS over the last year. 

Please be assured that this process will not delete tests, classes or students in UTIPS – only test results. If you feel that you may have a need for this data in the future, you can take a few minutes to save this information for your reference. If you feel that you will not need these test scores, you are not required to archive this information, and you can stop reading this message if you’d like. 

This screencast will detail the process of the steps listed below if you’d like to save these scores:
  1. Head to http://www.utips.sedck12.org and log into your UTIPS account.
  2. Hover your mouse over the ‘Reports’ menu in the black UTIPS menu, and click ‘All Tests’. This will show you a list of all of your test scores taken in the time frame listed in the drop-down menu after ‘Show All Tests Posted:’. By default, you are probably only looking at tests given today.
  3. Change the ‘Show All Tests Posted:’ option to ‘All Scores’, and UTIPS will show you all of the tests taken by your students over the past year.
  4. Click on an assessment that you’d like to save the scores for. You can see how many times it was taken to the right.
  5. On the top right of the test scores, you’ll see two options – one to print the results, and one to export the results. Printing will give you a paper version, and exporting will create a digital version for Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet programs. It is up to you which way you save these scores:
    1. Print Option: Simply wait for the small test score window to refresh with a printable version (PDF). Once this has happened, click the print or printer icon within the mini window to print off those scores – Don’t use the File –> Print option for your web browser.
    2. Export Option: Clicking this option will immediately download a .csv file that Excel or Google Spreadsheets can open and view, create charts, etc. To access the file, go to the location where your downloaded files are normally saved – usually your Downloads folder or on the computer Desktop. From there, you can rename (I highly recommend this) this file to a name that makes sense to you, and save it with the other files for that unit or in a folder for your test scores.
  6. To save additional test scores, simply head back to ‘Reports –> All Scores’ and repeat steps 5 and 6.

I hope that these instructions are clear and easy to follow. If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask a question – just email me at clint@sedck12.org.

Thanks, and good luck with the new school year!
