While Classworks does not have any any 3rd party reports that provide direct growth correlation, we do have report options that can be used in tandem with the third party assessment data to track growth. These options can be used each semester or at the end of the year. The district administrator selects the  assessments that schools use within Classworks. The best option, however, is to contact the assessment provider for assistance with growth tracking if you do not use a  Classworks Assessment.

In this article we will cover:

Classworks Assessments

Classworks Universal Screener

The Universal Screener assessment is used to identify readiness for on-grade level instruction. It is typically administered at the beginning of the school year; though it may also be used on an ongoing basis as part of an RtI model. The assessments are composed of Math and Reading/Language Arts and are developed for each grade level, K-10. To identify readiness, they include multiple grade levels to allow sufficient “reach” to identify student weaknesses. This assessment data can also be used to generate Individualized Learning Paths (ILPs) for students.

Classworks Summative Benchmark

This assessment measures concept mastery and is usually administered three times during the school year: at the beginning of the school year as a pretest, at mid-year as an interim progress test and at the end of the year as a post-test. The assessment can be used to measure growth throughout the year. The Benchmark Assessment addresses grades K-8 (Language Arts and Math) as well as Geometry I, Algebra I and English I. This assessment data can also be used to generate Individualized Learning Paths (ILPs) for students.

As a teacher, there is nothing that needs to be done to turn on the Classworks assessments.. It is enabled at the beginning of the year by your district administrator. Once the students logs in, on their home screen they will see an option  for Assessments.

From here they will click on "Take a Test", and they will see the test options available to them.  Once the  assessment is completed, the test data generated will be available to create a new ILP for the student.
NOTE:  This new test data will NOT interfere with NWEA test data. It will not automatically generate an ILP however. This will have to be done manually.

What to Look For

As you read the report, notice the following items: 

  • Use the filters to check to see how the students, classes, teachers, and/or schools are performing in relation to the testing window target expected for that time of year. Are they performing on, above, or below the target? Scores below target will be displayed in red. 
  • Compare how the students, classes, teachers, and/or schools are performing compared to each other. Look to see if one student, class, teacher, or school is performing much higher or lower than the others. 
  • For display by Selected Students, notice the student count for each test administration. An increased or decreased student count may skew the results.
