AMOS (Angular Merger of Signals) is an at-risk dashboard that can be customized to display any factors that are in PowerSchool. Each metric can be identified at the school or district level. Typical factors include current grades, cumulative grades, attendance, discipline, work completion, enrollment in activities. The data grid can even display extended schema, such as community service hours worked.
At-risk data is extracted and cached inside of PowerSchool to provide instant access to near real-time information. Admins and teachers can see a heatmapped data grid for all students in the school. Students are sorted by taking a weighted average of the factors that are on display. The default relative weights for each metric can be specified by the system administrator, while users can also make adjustments while examining the data. Hovering over a cell provides a hint about the underlying information, while clicking a cell can take the user to a student page with granular detail about the student’s performance.
The data grid allows for sorting and filtering on any of the factors. Once a group of students has been identified, they can be made the user’s current selection. Student names can be masked using a single button to facilitate a conversation with a student about his or her performance without exposing peer comparison data to the student.
