How do I create a new user role for my institution's Elevate K-12 Analytics account?

Updated

As an admin you may be able to create custom user roles for your institution's Elevate K-12 Analytics account. User roles determine a user's access to data and features within Elevate K-12 Analytics. By default, Elevate K-12 Analytics includes an Administrator user role, which grants access to all features and all of your institution's data. You may wish to create custom roles for specific user types at your institution. For example, you can create custom user roles for teachers at your institution that allows them to view data for students in their courses. They can then use the Elevate K-12 Analytics data to identify and support students.
