District Formative Dashboard

The District Formative Dashboard will pull in all standards data – including from frequent formative assessments – to show district admins early warnings and progress by grade and subject compared with historical data and goals. From the Dashboard, you can drill down and identify specific problem areas to address on a frequent basis.

     

Click a school name to drill down into the Campus Progress Tracker by standard.

See this article for more information on the District Formative Dashboard.

District Progress Trackers

District Progress Trackers automatically collate common assessment data from across the district by subject/grade/standard for district administrators. District Admins can view their District Trackers when they click a “Go to tracker” button in their District Formative Dashboard.

For each standard, you can see the current score and number of student responses from questions tied to that standard.

Campus Trackers

Campus Progress Trackers automatically collate a campus’s common assessment data by standard per teacher. District Admins can view the Campus Trackers by clicking a school name in any District Progress Tracker. Campus admins can view their Campus Trackers under Reports>Progress Trackers. 

For each standard, you can see the current score and number of student responses from questions tied to that standard.
