Parent Report

The Parent Report presents information about a student's work in MathFacts in a Flash for his or her parents or guardians. Each student's report is printed on a separate page.

The Parent Report shows:

  • the name of the class, teacher, and student
  • the level the student is currently working on
  • a list of the levels the student has mastered, along with the date each was mastered
  • the personal best time the student has achieved for each mastered level (and the date of that time)
  • signature lines for the teacher and parent (optional)

Teachers can print the report for their students. Administrators can print it for any students in the schools that they have access to.

When you print this report, you can choose these options:

  • Which students or classes to include
  • Which reporting parameter group to use (this allows you to include students by school enrollment date, ethnicity, gender, language, characteristics, and/or grade)
  • Which reporting period to include (a predefined or custom date range)
  • Whether to print the report in English or Spanish
  • Whether to include signature lines for the teacher and parent
