Review Data Results
Results display hierarchically beginning at the district level and ending at the student level. Use student filters to narrow to a specific population. Use the triangle icons to expand/collapse rows to the desired level for comparison. Click on a student name to access their Student Detail report.
When using the student filters, consider the following:
- When filtering for students, the student population is limited, but any classes, teachers, and schools associated with those students still display.
- When filtering for a specific teacher or class, the population is limited to only that teacher or class.
- If multiple filters are used, the results will display all classes, teachers, and schools associated with the available student population.
Your role will determine the data available to you.
- Teachers have access to their students and classes and totals for their assigned school(s) and district.
- School-level users have access to the students, classes, and teachers of their assigned schools as well as totals for their schools, other schools, and district.
- District level users have access to all students, classes, teachers, and schools.
Use filters to select specific schools, teachers, and groups of students.
Report- and Column- Level Filters
In Scoreboard, Add Student Filter behaves differently when accessed in the first column. When clicked in the first column, it adds report-level filters to Scoreboard. If clicked in an assessment column, it adds column-level filters.
Click Add Student Filter on the Schools, Teachers, and Students column to add report-level filters.
When using report level filters, consider the following:
- When filtering for students, the results displayed will be limited to the selected student population, but any classes, teachers, and schools associated with those students will still display in the list
- When filtering for a specific teacher or class, the results displayed will be limited to only the students associated with that teacher or class
- If multiple filters are used, the results will consist of all classes, teachers, and schools associated with the available student population
Click Add Student Filter on an added assessment column to add report-level filters. Use these to make side-by-side comparisons of different student populations on the same assessment.
Before you compare data for different groups of students, ensure the report has at least two columns that show the same assessment.
Use student filters to choose the students you want to display in a report. Follow this procedure to filter students, use a saved student filter, create a new saved student filter, or update an existing saved student filter.
- Click Add Filter.
- To use a saved filter, choose from the Saved Filters. If you select a saved filter, you can skip to step 10 and apply the filter or add more filter selections in the following steps.
- Click a category tab to display the related filters.
- Click an available filter to display its options. In the following diagram example, the Gender filter is selected in the Demographics category.
- Optionally, use the Search to narrow the scope of options.
- Select the desired filter options. In the diagram, the F (female) filter is applied.
- Optionally, select additional filters from the tabs as needed.
- If you use a saved filter, click Update Filter to make changes. You can only update filters to which you have update permission.
- If you want to save your current filter selections to use later, click Create New Filter and follow the prompts to name the filter.
- Click Apply to add the filtered choices to the report.
The numbers in parentheses indicate the number of selected attributes. For a category tab, the number in parentheses indicates the number of related filters you selected. For a filter, it indicates the number of options you selected. For a filter option, it indicates the number of students. The number of students displayed by a filter option takes other selected filters into account.
All applied filters display in blue. Click Add Student Filter again to add more filters.
To remove a filter, click x.
If more than three filters are selected, an ellipsis displays followed by the number of additional filters set.
Select the Hide rows without scores checkbox to hide blank rows. This hides rows with no data across all columns. The one exception is that blank rows at the student level are not hidden. This lets you review who has or has not been scored for the assessments.
Each column displays:
|The number of students who have a test score for the selected test.
The number of students in the selected student group who fell within each score range, based on the test threshold and mastery values.
Hover over each color to display the student count.
The average score of students in the selected student group.
|Performance Band Swatching
The percentage of students whose scores met the selected performance bands, represented by color swatching boxes. By default, all performance bands are active and therefore totals 100%. The performance band cuts and colors are determined by the performance band assigned to that assessment.
Click a color box to add or remove students in that performance band from the percentage count. When the center of a box is white, its students are removed from the percentage indicated.
For example, remove the yellow and green scores to reveal that 27% of students did not meet the threshold for this assessment.
