Consolidated Ranking Report
The Consolidated Ranking Report shows how students in each class performed on selected assessments in the reporting periods you select, and ranks scores.
How do I get to this page?
- Log in to Renaissance.
- On the Home page, select Administrator Reports.
- On the Administrator tab on the Reports page, under “Customizable Reports,” select Consolidated Ranking Report.

- Select Change Students... to choose whose data you want to see in the report.
- Teachers can only choose students in their own classes and groups.
- In the pop-up 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.
You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.
- 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).
- 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, then benchmark groups (for state benchmarks, then district benchmarks, and then school benchmarks).
When you are done making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
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).
- 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/Groups or Students.
- Check Hide Sections Without Data if you want to omit sections of the report that have no data in them.
- In the Add Columns section, use the Subject and Assignment Type drop-down lists to choose the assignment types to include in the report.
The selection you make for Subject determines what appears in the Assignment Type drop-down list. Typical assignment types are shown below for Reading (left) and Math (right).
- Use the Measure Category 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:
If additional parameters must be set for the selected measure category, the controls for setting them will be provided. For example, when Grade Equivalent (GE) is selected, the additional parameters required are (a) whether to show Average, Median, or both, and (b) the reporting period to include data from (see the next step).
- Use the Reporting Period drop-down list to select a marking period for the measure. You can select an existing marking period, 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).)
- Select + Add New Column to add a second (optional) assignment type and measure category for the report (follow the same steps you did for the first one).
If you add a second column and then change your mind, select the trash can in the upper-right corner to delete it.
- Once you are done choosing report options, select Update Report.
- 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 district and listed by student.)
- The measures for the chosen assignment types are shown in separate columns—each assignment type spans its own set of columns covering the marking period, the selected measure, and ranks the students based on that measure.
- 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.
- You can change any of the options you have selected and then regenerate the report by selecting Update Report.
