  1. Select Choose Students... (either the link or the button) to choose whose data you want to see in the report.

    In the pop-up window, you will see a number of columns where you can make your student selections.

    • At the top of the Schools column, if you have access to more than one school, choose either All Schools (to select all the schools you have access to) or choose Select Schools and then check the schools you want to include in the report. If you only have access to one school, you will not need to select schools—the Schools column will be hidden.

    • After the school selection has been made, the next two columns will populate with all the teachers and classes in the school(s). Use the "All" options at the top of each column to select all the teachers and classes, or use the "Select" options and check specific teachers and classes to include in the report.

      In the example above, the person generating the report chose East Elementary School as the school, and then selected three specific teachers at that school. The Classes column lists all the classes for those three teachers—since All Classes is selected, the report will be generated for all of the students in all classes belonging to those three teachers at East Elementary School.

      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 selecting the students you want to include in the report, select Apply (or select Cancel to close the pop-up window without saving your selections).
  2. By default, the "All" option is chosen for Ethnicity, Gender, Language, and Grade Level. To reduce the scope, choose the "Select" option at the top of the appropriate column and then check your selections in that column.

    In the example above, the user has selected two Languages 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 reduce the scope, choose Select Characteristics... and then check each characteristic you want students in the report to have. You must also choose any or all (after "Include students with") 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 are 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).
  3. Use the Group By and Then list drop-down lists to determine how the data in the report should be arranged.

    The Group By choice you make hierarchically determines the Then list options available. For example, if you choose to group by Teachers, you can only list by Classes or Students.
  4. Check Hide Sections Without Data if you want to omit sections of the report that have no data in them.

  5. Select Choose Assignment Type... (either the link or the button) to choose the assignment types to include in the report.

    In the pop-up window, select the application you want to generate the report for.

    After you select an application, a second column (Assignments) will open. In this column, select a single type of assignment.

    In the example above, the user selected Accelerated Reader 360 Instructional Practice for the application and Article Quiz for the assignment.

    Select Apply (or Cancel to close this pop-up without saving your selection).
  6. Next, select the measures you want the report to make. You must have at least one measure, but you can have two if you wish.

    1. Use the Measure drop-down list to choose the measure you want the report to track. The available measures will change depending on the assignment type you have chosen. For example:
    2. The report shows student progress from one marking period to another. Use the drop-down lists to select two marking periods for the measure. You can select existing marking periods, or you can select Custom... and set your own dates (use the calendars to select a range of dates; then select Apply to use the dates you have chosen or Cancel to close this pop-up without saving your selection).)

    3. Select + Add Second Measure below the first Measure drop-down list to add a second (optional) assignment type and measure for the report (follow the same steps you did for the first one). If you add a second measure and then change your mind, select the trash can by the upper-right corner of the second Choose Assignment Type... button to delete it.

  7. Once you are done choosing report options, select Update Report.

  8. The report will generate and then open at the bottom of the page.

    • The data for the selected students is shown, grouped as determined in step 3. (In the example above, the data is grouped by school and listed by student.)
    • The measures for the chosen assignment types are shown in two columns, one for each of the chosen marking periods. Another column summarizes the changes between marking periods.
    • The overall averages for the measures are in the bottom row.

      When the average Scaled Score is calculated for a group of students, the Rasch scores are averaged first; that average is then converted to the average Scaled Score for the group. This method is more accurate than using each student's individual Scaled Score for the calculation.

      If a student has taken multiple tests within the selected test range, the average of the student's test scores is used when calculating overall averages.

  9. You can change any of the options you have selected and then regenerate the report by selecting Update Report.
