Dashboard content is controlled by filters that retrieve data that meets the filters' selection criteria. Individual dashboards, when combined, deliver a comprehensive picture of district, school, and student performance.
There are two different types of filters:
- Dashboard filters exist under a folder or a dashboard, not under a metric. These are the filters (tools) the users interact with when they select the Filter Data button to alter their view of the data.
- Metric filters have built-in criteria in the metric's definition that cannot be changed by users during their analysis sessions.
