  • Tab-delimited files are similar to Excel files from the Data Downloads page, except:

    • they are in text format and must be imported into databases or spreadsheets before they can be viewed

    • results are reported by NCLB group

  • These files are most useful when you are looking for results from other schools and districts in MN, reported by NCLB group; otherwise, Excel Summary Files from the Educator Portal are preferred
