TIM Tools 7.5 Administration Guide

Downloading TUPS Data


Members with roles that have “TUPS: View and download data” enabled, will be able to download TUPS data at their own administrative level using the Admin Center. That is, school leaders will be able to download TUPS from their assigned school, zone leaders will be able to download TUPS from their assigned their assigned zone, and district leaders will be able to access all TUPS data from across the district.


1. Begin by selecting the Download TUPS Data under the TUPS tab in the Admin Center. You will see the following window:

Figure 1. Opening Download TUPS Data screen. No values have been selected by the user, however the Start Date and End Date have been automatically populated indicating the range of existing data.


2. Then select whether you want to download only submitted surveys or all surveys. Selecting “All Surveys” will include incomplete surveys as well as surveys that may have been completed, but were not actually submitted yet.


3. You also have the option to select either a specific framework or all frameworks.


4. Next select your target location from the Schools dropdown menu.

Users with district-level TUPS data access will be able to select all schools in the district or any particular school. Users with zone-level TUPS data access will be able to select all schools in the zone or any particular school within the zone. The school will be pre-selected for users with school-level TUPS data access.


5. Then select the target Role(s) you wish to include. Control-click (command-click on a Mac) to select more than one role.


6. Select whether you wish to “anonymize” the data or include identifying information.

Selecting Anonymous will remove the following data from your downloads: First Name, Last Name, Member ID, School Name, and School ID. There may be times when users wish to share data without identifying information. Note, however, that this selection simply removes the fields noted above. There still may be identifying information in the remaining fields, particularly within the demographic data. Users must determine if eliminating these five fields meets their need for anonymized data or if they need to delete additional columns from the downloaded spreadsheet.

7. Next select the Start Date and End Date. If you leave the default dates unchanged, you will receive a download of every TUPS submission. You can change both the Start Date and End Date to narrow the range if desired. Click the calendar icon to change the date.
