Who can do this with default user permissions?

The Schoolwide Summary report shows you schoolwide information about your students Accelerated Reader Reading Practice Quizzes, Accelerated Reader 360 article assignments and quizzes, Star Custom assessments, Accelerated Math Instructional Practice assignments, and instructional resources.

You can group the report by grade or by classes and groups. For each grade or class/group, the report shows you:

  • the number of students
  • the percentage of students whose average percent correct is below the value you chose (75%, 80%, 85%, or 90%)
  • the overall average percent correct for the grade or the class/group on each type of assignment activity
  • the average book level (difficulty level) or the average grade level (where this applies)
  • the total points earned or skills or subskills attained (where applicable) and the median of points earned
  • the average number of skills or subskills attained (where applicable) along with the average points earned and the median

Follow these steps to print the report:

  1. If you are not already on the Reports page, select Reports on the Home page; then, select Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice or Math Practice in the menu that opens.
  2. When you go to the Reports page, the tab that is open by default depends on the choice you made in the menu.

  3. Select Schoolwide Summary Report in the Monitor Progress section of the page (regardless of whether you are viewing reading or math reports). (If you have added the report to the Pinned Reports, you'll find it under that section at the top of the page.)
  4. Select Choose Assignment Type (either the link or the button).
  5. In the window that opens, choose a product or type of resource in the first column; then, choose one assignment type in the second column. Select Apply.
  6. Select Choose Students (either the link or the button).
  7. 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 most teachers.
    • 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 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 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 the window without saving your choices).

  8. If you want to use demographic data to focus the report on specific students, select Choose Demographics.
  9. 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).

  10. Next, choose how to group information on the report: by grade, or by class or group.
  11. By default, the report will include the current school year. If you want to choose all time, a marking period, or custom dates instead, select the date field.
  12. If you want to use one of the marking periods that have been added for your school, select the marking period in the list. (You can also select "All Time.")

    If you want to use custom dates, select Custom. Then, type the start and end dates in the fields (using four digits for the year), or select the start date and then the end date in the calendar (use the arrows to the left and right of the months to go back or forward). When you're done, select Apply.

  13. Next, choose whether to report on the students whose average percentage correct is below 90%, 85%, 80%, or 75%.
