Walk through of the Electronic Monitoring Tool (EMT) Desk audit items Self assessment items ELECTRONIC MONITORING TOOL EXCEL EMT-E for reporting your results Excel version

EXCEL EMT The following suggestions and advice on using the Excel version of the EMT was using a PC. If you are using a MAC, some of the directions may differ. EMT DIRECTIONS In the column to the right of the gray box fill in the

childs information. 1) First name 2) Last name 3) Date of Birth 4) Age 5) Disability Enter the birthday using the format - 01/09/1998 EMT DIRECTIONS

Each cell is a drop down menu and the only accepted entries are +, -, and in some cases NA. If anything else is entered this message will pop up: EMT DIRECTIONS You will see the data automatically populate in the boxes to the right of the criteria.

You can move around the sheet with arrow keys or tab keys, but when entering data you must click enter after you enter + or - in the cell for it to log. SAVE Remember to save often. Saving after every childs file is a good guideline.

Remove EMT from flash drive and save it to your computer. EMT DIRECTIONS You can hide rows and columns. Hover the cursor over the first column or row you want hidden and move to

the last column or row you want hidden. Right click and select hide on the menu. You can unhide the same way. EMT DIRECTIONS You can freeze panes to keep the Child Name

column visible and allow the subsequent columns with the childs information to scroll. Click on column I (the first childs information column) Click on view in menu bar Click on freeze panes You can unfreeze panes with the same process.
