District-level professional development administrators can build a Custom Professional Development Report combining data about courses and staff members using a variety of fields. Some questions this report could answer include the following:
- Did staff members complete the survey?
- How many staff members received this type of credit?
- How many courses did this person create?
- What course provided the most credit?
Creating the Custom Professional Development Report
Step 1: Select Reports in Strive.
Step 2: Select the Custom Professional Development Report under Analysis & Export Reports.
Step 3: Click the Plus sign to expand the reporting category sections, which include Course Info, Staff Info, and Attendance and Credits. Each category section contains data headers you can add to your report.
Step 4: Drag and drop the column headers you want to display in your report. You can customize the column headers to be in any order, but your custom report will only show those you drag over.
Step 5: Click on a selected header on the right column, then click Add Filter to narrow down your data results further. Set the qualifier for the filter as either Equals, Doesn’t Equal, Contains, Greater Than, or Less Than. Then, select items to filter for that particular header. For example, you could set Course Type to pull data that exactly equals conference courses as a designation.
Step 6: To see what credits staff members have earned, click the Plus sign to expand Course Info. Drag and drop the column headers for Title, Course Start Date, Course Dimensions, and any other course info you need in your report.
Second, expand Staff Info, then drag and drop the column headers for Last Name, First Name, and any other staff info you need in your report.
Finally, expand Attendance and Credits, then drag and drop the column headers for Attendance Status, Credit Earned, Earned Credit Type, and any other credit info you need in your report.
Step 7: Click Submit Report to export your report data into a CSV spreadsheet file.
