Administrators at the school and district levels may access data files containing historical student data by clicking on “Data Files” on the menu and then selecting the grade and assessment window for which you would like to download files.
These are .csv files that may be downloaded to your computer and viewed using spreadsheet software, such as Excel.

Once downloaded, you may create reports and adjust the format to meet your specific data analysis needs. These data files continue to be available in future years so that you have access to longitudinal PALS data for all of your students.
An “Explanation of Data Fields” document can also be found on the Data Files page to provide explanations for these field headings.
