District and School Profiles

We value your students' privacy. All images in this article were produced with simulated data.

The District and School Profiles provide an overview of data with the opportunity to drill down for more detail. The District Profile gives you a summary for all schools; the School Profile gives you data for a specific school.

* Star proficiency data shown is for the most recent district screening window. Star data in Renaissance Analytics includes students who have taken a Star test and gotten a benchmark score in a district screening window. Only tests taken in a district screening window are shown, and only for schools that use the district screening windows. If students have taken more than one test in a district screening window, only the most recent test is included for benchmark metrics.

** Freckle data and Accelerated Reader Active Students and Quiz Proficiency data are based on the past 28 days.

For more information about the data, see the following:

What's On the Tiles?

Each tile includes the title of the metric, the school or district goal (if there is one), and the metric.

Below that, you will see how many students met the criteria and the total number of students or a year-to-year comparison of data. To switch between the number of students and the year-to-year comparison, select the left arrow to see the number of students or the right arrow to see the comparison.

Clicking on the icons at the bottom of each tile allows you to gain additional insight into each metric.

the overall icon, which shows the default view The "Overall" icon shows the default tile view, which is described above.

the demographics icon The Demographics view shows you student performance by demographic category. After you select this icon, use the drop-down list on the tile to choose the demographic that you'd like to see data for. In the graph, you can choose a bar to see a list of students in the category.

the trendline icon The trendline shows data trends. For Star proficiency rates, the trendline shows scores for each district screening window over two school years. For Student Growth Percentile, the trendline shows SGP growth rates for window-to-window time periods over two school years. For Accelerated Reader and Freckle, data points are shown for 28-day time periods over two school years.

the performance levels icon The performance levels icon shows multiple categories of performance for the metric, with the percentage of students in each category. For Star proficiency, benchmark categories are shown. For Student Growth Percentile, you will see low, typical, and high growth categories. For Accelerated Reader data, Active Students categories are based on the number of quizzes taken, and Quiz Proficiency categories are based on overall average quiz scores; performance levels are not available for Quizzes Passed School Year to Date. For Freckle data, Active Students categories are based on the number of sessions completed, and accuracy is based on their overall scores. If you hover over a category, you can see the number of students; if you click the category, you can see a list of students in that category on the Our Students dashboard.

the school rankings icon The school rankings icon allows you to see the data for the five highest-ranking or lowest-ranking schools based on performance on the metric (use the drop-down list to choose whether to see the highest or lowest schools). This icon is only available on the District Profile. If you click a school name, you will go to the School Profile for that school.

Filtering Data

You can filter the data shown in the tiles by demographic information, by school level, or by school region using the Filter By drop-down lists at the top of the page. In the first drop-down list, choose the information that you'd like to filter the information by; then, choose the value in the second drop-down list. In the example below, the data would be filtered to students in grade 3.

Filter By example with Current Grade Level selected in the first drop-down list and 3rd in the second

Exploring the Data Further

If you need to do a more in-depth analysis, select Explore to open Metric Zoom, which allows you to see up to five years of Star data (if available) and up to two years of Accelerated Reader and Freckle data. You can see longitudinal data by different groups of students (e.g., primary ethnicity or other demographic data if that data has been added for students in Renaissance software). On the District Profile, Metric Zoom is available to those who have access to all schools.
