What to Look For
As you read the report, notice the following items:
See how students 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.
For second and third administrations, notice student growth and be sure to celebrate all progress.
For display by Selected Students, notice the student count for each test administration. An increased or decreased student count may skew the results.
For calculating Class growth for the year, be sure to only select students who have taken all testing administrations.
