The entire WINSS Data Analysis Section was rewritten in 2010 to take advantage of new technologies and to move away from techologies that have been deprecated since WINSS was originally launched. Certain enhancements were included as part of the rewrite. Below is a partial list of these enhancements.
Other important notes:
All New URLs. The new URL for the Data Analysis Section home page is http://data.dpi.state.wi.us/data/ . Use of the old home page URL, http://data.dpi.state.wi.us/data/selschool.asp , will result in an automatic redirect to the new URL, but to prevent future problems, personal bookmarks and links from other websites should be updated soon. If you have bookmarked or are direct linking from your website to WINSS graph pages containing data for a specific topic/school, these bookmarks/links need to be updated now. URL changes were required by the recently completed Data Analysis Section Rewrite.
District/School ESEA Report Cards. Direct ESEA report card links from district websites to WINSS graph pages need to be updated now. Also federally-required content changed in fall 2008. For more information, see a sample ESEA report card and Can I use WINSS to meet District Report Card Requirements under ESEA? .
Copying WINSS Graphs. Some users like to copy WINSS graphs into reports or handouts. WINSS graphs are no longer simple images so, to copy/paste, users should follow these steps: (1) right click on the graph, (2) click on the "Toolbar" option, which will add a row of icons to the top of the graph, (3) click on the second icon from the left in the row, which will copy the graph to the clipboard, and (4) select the first option, "bitmap" and then paste the graph into the desired document. Paint, Word, or other graphics programs can be used to crop images if desired. When using Word, doubleclick on the pasted image then click on the "Crop" option under "Size" on upper right side of the screen.
