Accessing Elementary Report Cards and Student Data in Illuminate

What is Illuminate?Illuminate illustration

 
Illuminate is a data system that integrates a variety of student assessment and demographic data in one place.  Teachers and administrators can view pre-built reports and sort or filter by relevant groups, or can create custom reports using state-level and local assessment information to guide instruction.  Illuminate also allows educators to build and administer custom on-line assessments, and student portal access for students to participate in assessments and for students and parents to view assessment results and elementary report cards.  (Please note that secondary report cards are accessed through "Q", our Student Information System).
 
For Parents:

Beginning with Fall 2021, in an effort to streamline parent/guardian access, we are recommending that you use the Illuminate Student Portal to view your child's elementary report card. Report cards for secondary students, along with MAP reports for both elementary and secondary, will continue to be available through the Q parent portal. By accessing Illuminate through the student portal, parents will not need to set up an Illuminate parent portal in addition to the Q parent portal.


Here are the steps:

Log intoilluminate your child’s PUSD CLEVER account, then click on the link to Illuminate. You will be able to log in through Google and will not need an additional password. Another method of logging in, as long as you are logged into the student's PUSD Google account, is to use the link to the Illuminate Home Connection login https://pleasanton.illuminatehc.com/login and then click on "Sign in With Google". With this option no password is necessary. See images below for more information.

 

If you prefer to have access to the Parent Portal please contact Assessment and Accountability Specialist, Laura Keller (lkeller@pleasantonusd.net), to obtain an access code. Parents who have already registered for a parent portal will continue to have access to linked students' report cards.

 
For Students:
 
Log into your PUSD CLEVER account, then click on the link to Illuminate.  You will be able to log in through Google and will not need an additional password.  Another method of logging in, as long as you are logged into your PUSD Google account, is to use the link to the Illuminate Home Connection login (https://pleasanton.illuminatehc.com/login,) and then click on "Sign in With Google" and you will not need to enter a password.
