Getting Accessing to District and Building Results on AskHYS.net

Thank you for your interest in accessing HYS data. Please read the guidance below to troubleshoot accessing your local data on the AskHYS.net website. If you continue to have trouble, please contact OSPI Customer Support at CustomerSupport@k12.wa.us or (800) 725-4311 Option 7.


School and District Employees

Steps to follow:

  1. Check to see if you can log on to the AskHYS.net website using your EDS login (your email) and password. You do not need to login through EDS first. You should login directly from the AskHYS website.

    1. If you do not have an EDS account, please create one here: https://eds.ospi.k12.wa.us/Login.aspx

    2. b. If you do not remember your password, you can reset it on the login page of EDS.

  2. If you do have a login and password, and are unable to access your district and/or school reports, you may not have the correct permissions/roles in EDS. Please contact your DDSM to request the proper access. The DDSM directory can be found in EDS. See screen shot below for location in EDS.

If you are a school staff or administrator, you can request the “HYS Building Level Access” role for your school; this will allow you to see only your school’s results. If you are a district staff or administrator, you can request the “HYS Building Level Access” role for your district, which will allow you to see all building level data in your district, as well as district summary data. You do not need both the Building Level and the District Level roles for the same organization. If you have both roles for the same organization, the data will not be displayed. The district summary role shows aggregate district data only.

Community Members, Researchers and Parents

Steps to follow:

  1. Check to see if results are available for the district or building you are interested in. To do this, go to the “Past Participation” web page and search for the districts and/or schools that are on the list.

  2. Contact the District Superintendent to request access to the specific district and/or building results. Explain who you are, your purpose of accessing specific district and/or building results, and how the results will be used. A school district directory is available at:
    https://eds.ospi.k12.wa.us/DirectoryEDS.aspx

  3. If you receive approval from the District Superintendent, contact the District Security Manager to receive the required electronic permission. A list of District Security Managers is available at: https://eds.ospi.k12.wa.us/SecurityManagerList.aspx

  4. Once you receive permission, log on the AskHYS.net website using your assigned EDS user id and password. If you log on correctly, a message will appear in fine print at the bottom of the AskHYS.net main screen.

  5. The names of the districts and/or school buildings that you received permission for will now appear in the "Geography" drop down menu, under Frequency Reports or Fact Sheets.
