What to Look For
As you read the report, notice the following items:
- Compare the number of skills being mastered each week to the amount of time the student is spending in Classworks working on the ILP. Is there a correlation?
- View student mastery compared to the Aim Line. Is the student on track to master all of the objectives within the intervention period?
- Is the student getting the recommended time on task (see the Target Time on Task line)?
- Compare the student's grade level with the grade level of the skills on the assessment. Is the rate of mastery consistent with expectations or is there evidence that the level of instruction is too easy or too difficult?
- View the remaining skills listed at the top of the report. Is the student not mastering skills in the ILP? View the second page of the report to see which skills the student is not mastering. Select the Assignment Results option to see the unit details.
- Be sure to read the key regarding how the Aim Line and Target Time on Task Line are calculated.
Skills Mastered is determined by the unit quick quiz score. This includes the number of skills mastered on the assessment as well as the number of skills mastered on the ILP.
Note: Grade(s) and the number of skills addressed included on the Skills Snapshot Assessment.
Note: Start Date is the date the student started the Skills Snapshot Assessment.
