Select Data to Include in Reports

The Universal Selector allows teachers and administrators to select the test data they want included in the report they’re viewing and at what level. Using the Roster tab, teachers can easily move from focusing on a single student’s performance to seeing how multiple students or an entire class performed. With the Test tab, you can focus on one test, filter by test type, or look at all the tests taken so far that year. At the same time, the Date tab lets you filter student test results by custom or common date ranges.

Administrators can choose between schools. Teachers have their school pre-selected for them.

 

Navigate the Roster Tab in the Universal Selector

Select your report data from the Roster tab using the dropdown menus.

  • School — Select a school.
  • Teacher — select a teacher.
  • Class — Select a class.
  • Student — Select a student. The default option includes every student in the class.

After you’ve selected your data set press the Apply button. The Context Header will now display the data selected.

You can only navigate one tab at a time. Make sure to press the Apply button before moving to another tab.

 

Use the Roster Tab’s Data Filters

You can filter test data by class and student. Administrators, depending on their role, can select other levels of report data, such as teacher, grade, and school.

  1. Access Reports.
  2. Click the Roster tab on the Universal Selector.
  3. Select a school from the School drop-down box. You can also enter the school name into the search bar.

The options displayed in the Universal Selector come from data derived from your student roster. Students can appear in the student drop-down box even when they have no associated assessment data. Including them in your report does not impact the displayed metrics.

Using Student Data Filter

The Student Data filter displays all the classes a student is rostered for in your district. Using the Roster tab in the Universal Selector, you can select additional classes to include in the student level reports to view the student’s performance. The Student Data filter will only be available when a student is rostered to multiple classes in the district.

When multiple classes are selected, an info icon will appear by the Class name in the Context Header indicating the report includes student data from another class.
