Welcome to DevResults! To help you get a feel for the site, we've put together a list of articles we think may be helpful.
Want help navigating the site?
We have several help pages dedicated to navigating the site. Here's an overview of Navigating DevResults and what to click on to get more information.
Want to understand the concepts behind the way DevResults handles data?
DevResults uses Data Structures to make your collection, management, and dissemination of results as easy as possible. We've created an overview that gives you a quick look at The Bigger Picture: how to think about data collection. It can also be a great resource as you and your organization begin to train users on interacting with DevResults.
Questions about the set-up template?
DevResults' set-up template helps us build your organization's site to match your needs. If you're involved in setting up a new DevResults site, check out the Setup Template Instructions for what information we need from you.
Trying to understand indicator definitions?
Indicator data can come from several sources depending what that data looks like. These include:
- Data Source: Enter Indicator Results Directly for entering indicator results as values
- Data Source: From a Formula for calculating indicator results based on other indicators or values
- Data Source: Populate from a Data Table for creating records about individual trainees, events, policies, etc.
Need to enter or view data?
DevResults gives you the option of entering data online or uploading data from Excel. Data entry works a bit differently for 'direct entry' indicators versus 'data table' indicators, and depending on whether you're a partner or general user. We have instructions for whatever you need for Entering, Viewing, and Sharing Information.
To make a report about any indicator data in DevResults, check out our Pito Reports.
Are you an administrator?
Have a look at our Permissions Overview to see how to set access levels for different members of your organization and any partner organizations. You can also check out our pages on managing Users & Profiles.
An essential role of a DevResults administrator is keeping activities and indicators up to date for reporting. This means keeping the activity list current and making sure that activities are assigned to indicators, to reporting periods, and to the places where they work. The best way to get a feel for this is to Add an Activity on your Training Site. You'll know you've got it right when you can enter data for that activity.
Wondering how to roll DevResults out to your organization?
Software adoption across an organization is never easy. We've put together a Change Management Toolkit that may be helpful as you begin to implement DevResults. Let us know what works and doesn't work for you.
