The steps below apply to most reading reports, but some reports have unique options (such as the Book Labels Report or Certificates).
- On the Home page, select Accelerated Reader Independent Reading; then, select Reports. (If you select Reports on the Home page instead, select Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice if a menu opens when you select the tile.)
- On the Reports page, the Accelerated Reader/Reading Practice tab is selected. Find the report and select it. (If you have added the report to the Pinned Reports, you'll also find it under that section at the top of the page.) Note: Some tiles are dashboards; these steps only describe how to generate the reports.
- Many of the reports let you choose the type of assignment that you want to see information for. (Note that for many reports, only one type of assignment can be selected.) Select Choose Assignment Type.
- In the window that opens, select Accelerated Reader in the first column and one of the quiz types in the second column. (Some reports allow you to select multiple quiz types.) Then, select Apply.
If you want to report on article quizzes or skills practice assignments instead, select Accelerated Reader 360 Instructional Practice in the first column and choose an assignment type in the second column. (Some reports allow you to select multiple assignment types.) Then, select Apply.
- For most reports, you must also choose the students to include. Select Choose Students.
- Choose the students to include in the report. Teachers can only choose students in their own classes and groups.
- In the popup window, if there is a Schools column, select a school. (This column isn't available if you only have access to one school.)
- If the Teachers column is available, At the top of the column, choose either All Teachers (to choose all the teachers in the school) or Select Teachers (to choose specific teachers; check the ones you want in the list). This column is not available to teachers unless they are assigned to more than one school.
- At the top of the Classes column, choose either All Classes (to choose all the classes for the teachers) or Select Classes (to choose specific classes; check the ones you want in the list).
- Teachers, school administrators, and school staff will also see a Groups column. At the top of the Groups column, choose either All Groups or Select Groups; if you choose Select Groups, check the groups that you want to include. The first choice in the column is "Whole Class" or "Whole Classes"; choose this to report on the class(es) as a whole. Below that, you will see groups you created.
- You may need to scroll to the right to see the Students column. At the top of the Students column, choose either All Students (to choose all the students) or Select Students (to choose specific students; check the ones you want in the list).
You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.
When you are done making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close this the pop-up without saving your choices).
- If you want to use demographic data to focus the report on specific students, select Choose Demographics (if the option is available).
By default, the "All" option is chosen for Ethnicity, Gender, Language (the students' primary language, if specified), and Grade Level. To focus the report on specific groups, choose the "Select" option at the top of the appropriate column and then check your selections in that column. Note that ethnicity, gender, primary language, and grade level may be specified for students when you add them to the software, but only grades are required; other information may not be available for your students.
In the example above, the user has selected one Language and three Grade Levels, while leaving Ethnicity and Gender at the default "All" options. Note: The Filter Reports by Ethnicity user permission may be set to prevent the use of ethnicities as a filter.
By default, the "All" option is chosen for Characteristics. To focus the report on students with specific characteristics, choose Select Characteristics; then, check the characteristics that you are interested in. You must also choose any or all above the check boxes to specify whether students with any of the selected characteristics will be included in the report or only those with all of the selected characteristics.
In the example above, the user selected two Characteristics (ADA and ESL). Because any is selected, the report will include students who are ADA, ESL, or both. If all had been selected, only students who are both ADA and ESL would be included. Note: The Filter Reports by Characteristics user permission may be set to prevent the use of characteristics as a filter.
Once you have finished choosing demographic options, select Apply at the bottom of the window to save your choices (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
- If the report requires you to choose the date range, select the date field.
If you want to use one of the marking periods that have been added for your school, select the marking period in the list.
If you want to use custom dates, select Custom. In the calendars, select the first date in the range; then, select the last date. (Use the arrows to the left and right of the months to go back or forward.)
- Some reports will require additional settings, such as scale, marking period, or sorting. Many reports will allow you to hide groups or students who do not have data.
- Select Update Report under the options.
- The report will open under the button with the class or group name and the teachers shown above the table(s) of information.
If you want to print the report, select the PDF icon in the top right corner of the page. A PDF of the report will open in a new tab, where you can print and save the report.
When you're ready to leave the page, you can select the Home button to go back to the Home page. To go back to the Reports page, select the Reports button (circled below) or the Back to Reports link.
