How it works
How the Te Haerenga o Ngā Tamariki tool works
Find out how your students travel to school. Start collecting your data with our simple online tool.
How do I get started?
The tool is available to use from 1 February to 30 April 2023. You do not have to be a Movin’March school to take part.
Who can I contact about Movin'March?
Movin’March is a Greater Wellington Regional Council programme that is supported by local councils to encourage schools and whānau to walk or wheel to or from school. We trialed the Te Haeraenga o Ngā Tamariki Tool as part of Movin' March in 2022 and 2023, and it will be rolled out again in 2024. See Movin’March for more information or get in touch with the team for any questions.
How do I access my datasets?
You can still login to access your data and view your dashboard at any time.
What do I do if I forgot my login details?
You can reset your email address by clicking on the ‘reset your password’ link below, or change your password once you’re logged in.
Is the data safe and anonymous?
Yes. Absolutely. No personal information is stored about individual students and the website and application are secure. It is not possible to identify individuals based on the data captured in the application.
How do I download the data?
You can download the data from any dataset by clicking on the ‘options’ menu for a dataset, then selecting ‘Manage data’. This will take you to a screen where you can select the data you want, then click on the ‘Export to csv’ data. By default, this exports all the data in the dataset to a CSV file. You can open CSV files in Microsoft Excel if you’d like to create more detailed graphs or work with your students.
What is a dataset?
A dataset refers to a set of data. Every set of data is displayed as a graph and can be downloaded as a CSV file.
How do I view the data with my class?
Once your students have entered data into a dataset, you can view a graph of the data. You can find the link to view the graph on your dashboard. You can share that link with your students (or anyone) so they can also view the graph. They cannot change the data in the graph, but they can change the date range to see travel data from different days.
What is a ‘custom mode’?
A travel mode is a way that students get to school. By default, we include: walk, bike, scooter, skateboard/rollerblade, bus, private vehicle and train. A custom mode allowed you to capture another way of getting to school, eg, ferry.
Can I change the type of graphs used?
Currently the data can only be displayed as a bar graph. However, if you want to do something specific with the data you can always download it. If you have any suggestions for how you would like the graphs displayed in the future, let us know.
How do I change the name or title of my graph and dataset?
You can change information about a dataset from your Dashboard by clicking on the ‘options’ menu for a dataset and selecting ‘Change settings’. This will then allow you to edit certain information about your dataset. However, this will not allow you to edit any details that affect the data itself, such as changing the travel modes in the dataset.
Can I move data from one dataset to another?
This tool does not currently allow for this. However, you can always download your data and do this manually in a spreadsheet.
Can I share links to the tool outside of the school?
As this was a trial, the data collection screen is no longer intended to be used. However, you can share graph links outside the school without people being able to enter data. This way you can keep parents up to date on the programme, or let the wider community know how your students travelled to school during the trial.
