Drilling Down: Item Analysis Report • Find a section that has district and local assessment data - Which skill and standard are you most concerned about for your students? - Which items were the most challenging for students and what can you learn about their misunderstandings by looking at the distractors? - What evidence of strengths/weaknesses in curriculum, instruction, or assessment are apparent in the data? - What other data (student work, individual demographic data) do you have that informs your knowledge about student performance? - What instructional actions will you take to differentiate instruction based on the data?

  43. 43. Reports Available to Investigate Further
  44. 44. Save and Access Your Own Reports So that the data is always current, save the report parameters, rather than the results.
  45. 45. Analysis Spreadsheet How are my students performing across multiple data points?
  46. 46. Functionality Review Are you familiar with the following? • Running reports from the Report Bank and Benchmark Dashboard • Creating a pre-formatted report • Creating an analysis spreadsheet • Saving a report and viewing a saved report
  47. 47. Creating a Report First ask yourself: • What is my goal for this report? • Who do I want to know about? • What do I want to know about these students? • What do I want to compare?
  48. 48. Compare Reports Report 1 Report 2 Who: Students who missed multiple days of school last year Who: Students who performed poorly on a standardized test What: Standardized Test report What: Attendance report • How do these reports differ? • Is it likely that the same students are in both reports? • What questions do these reports help answer?
  49. 49. Making a Complete Report Who: Student Set + What: (Report Parameters + Data Constraints) • Pre-formatted reports: Choose from a limited selection of student sets, report parameters, and data selections, all available in one place • Custom reports: Define student sets, report parameters, and data constraints separately • Analysis spreadsheet: Begin with a student set and define columns of data
  50. 50. The “Who” • The “who” is your student set: a group of students who meet pre-defined criteria. • Example student sets include students who: - Are enrolled in a particular class - Are currently enrolled at your school - Are enrolled in a special education program - Were enrolled in 4th grade last year - Performed poorly on a specific test
  51. 51. The “Who” Defining a Student Set • Create a student set: - Manually, using a student filtering process - Automatically, by clicking a graph or table • The student set “box” appears in the following locations: - Analysis Spreadsheet - Student Filter - Custom Reports
  52. 52. The “Who” Define the Student Set by Applying Filters Filters are “and” criteria; students must meet all filters.
  53. 53. • Current Enrollment – Students enrolled as of today • Total Enrollment – Students enrolled over time Choose Total Enrollment to include all students at some point during the school year—to evaluate how the institution performed over time. Also, use this option during summer. The “Who” Enrollment Filter
  54. 54. Middle School No Year Specified Enrolled 2011-2012 Female A DC B Try It Out Use Boolean Logic
  55. 55. Try It Out The “Who” – Define a Student Set • Create a set of current students at a school • Create a set of low-scoring students • Save a student set • Discuss enrollment selection (current vs. total)
  56. 56. The “What” Analysis Spreadsheet • The “what” is your data selection, the data points on which you would like to report. • Use your data selection to: - Measure students across multiple assessments (such as standardized vs. benchmark tests for same subject) - View scores across multiple subjects and sort results to identify students who perform better in some subjects than others - Compare assessment data to attendance - View demographic information (such as gender and ethnicity) Analysis spreadsheet — The “what” is displayed in the columns and the “who” in the rows. The student selection (“who”) is the same regardless of the column selection (“what”).
  57. 57. The “What” Custom Reports For custom reports, the “what” is defined by report parameters and data selections. •Report parameters: Formatting (such as a table, graph, or pie chart) and data elements (rows and columns, such as test section or score group) •Data constraints: Point in time (last year’s test), school, and grade level in which the students tested
  58. 58. The “What” Report Parameters: Grouping Data • Use report parameters to group data using sub-rows and paging • Use paging for both custom and pre-formatted reports • For pre-formatted reports, page by subgroup category Rows and sub-rows grouped by subject Paging by student subgroup
  59. 59. The “What” Custom Report Builder Use custom reports to define parameters: •Formatting •Rows •Columns •Totals
  60. 60. Use of Row and Sub Row The row and sub-row selection alters the report for the same data
  61. 61. Demonstration: Building a Custom Report
  62. 62. Try It Out: Generate a Custom Report • Generate custom reports - Standardized test - Independent practice • Try some of the options in the Benchmark Item Analysis report • Save a few reports for other activities
  63. 63. Analysis Spreadsheet Custom Report • For ~<200 students • For specific students, such as those who did well in reading but not math • To see student names on the report • If a pre-formatted report does not meet your needs • For a large selection of students • To find patterns • To identify instructional areas of concern for a group of students Choose a Report Type
  64. 64. Publishing Reports for Others Report Manager – Users with the report manager role can publish reports and manage published reports: •Save the report •Publish the report -School-level report managers publish to the school bank -District-level report managers publish to a single school, a district, or multiple schools •Edit and retract reports •No approval workflow
  65. 65. Saving to the Report Bank What can you save to the Report Bank? • Pre-formatted reports • Student sets • Analysis spreadsheets with students • Analysis spreadsheets without students* • Custom report with students (focus for today) • Custom report without students* * When using these items, you are prompted to select the missing component
  66. 66. Key Reports • Display on Schoolnet home page • Highlight the especially important reports for your institution • Display reports from your institution’s Report Bank only • Tag reports as “Key Reports” at the school level or across all schools as part of the publishing and contextualizing process
  67. 67. Places to Find Reports • Public Report Bank: Repository for published reports (published reports are custom reports approved by an administrator for district-wide or school-wide distribution) • My Reports Bank: Repository for saved reports that you created and published reports from the Report Bank that you bookmarked (Note: Only you can see the reports that you save.) • Key Reports: Quick reference for published reports on the Schoolnet home page that are tagged as “key” reports • Related Reports: Quick reference for published reports on the KPI detail page that are related to a specific KPI • Benchmark Dashboard: Quick reference for published reports that include a single test administration
  68. 68. Try It Out: Publishing Reports • Publish reports you want to make available to other users • Select a few reports to tag as Key Reports • Retract any reports you don’t want to remain published
