Number of students who have at least 1 valid a quiz

Notes

  1. Students who have taken an AR comprehension quiz (Reading Practice, Other Reading, Article Quizzes, Read and Quiz Assignment), including students who have exited.
  2. A school’s metrics only include students’ AR data from when they attended that school.
  3. Deleted quizzes are not included. If a student only has taken quizzes that were then deleted, they would not be included in the denominator.

Student Level Metric: Average percent correct

Average Percent Correct = Sum of percent correct on all comprehension quiz scores

Number of comprehension quizzes

rounded to nearest one decimal point (note, not rounded down to the nearest integer as in the AR Student Performance Record Report)
