This lesson will guide you through the use of the Washington ADA Aggregation Report. The report is used to determine average daily attendance (ADA) for students across the district using CEDARS whole day and partial day attendance logic. Future aggregation levels will also include teacher and grade level. The report comes with a student scope selector and can be run for custom date ranges as well as a variety of other filters common throughout the system. Data is currently aggregated at the weekly and monthly level. Please note that this is a beta level report and undergoing user testing.
