Viewing the distribution of your students across Composite Status:
The Dashboards allow users to filter students by using the dropdown menu at the top of the page. Users will see students grouped by Composite Status and performance on each measure that makes up a Composite Score.
To view this information:
From the Dashboard view, click the tile labeled "Percent of active 2nd grade students who are At or Above Benchmark Status"
Once in the Breakdown view, you can filter and group students by grade, class, gender, and more. The first dropdown selects the metric, the second dropdown filters for the students you would like to focus on, and the third dropdown will default to grouped by grade.
You can also switch to other subjects and administration periods by clicking on the first dropdown.
From the Dashboard view, click the Screeners category on the left side-nav
Once in the Breakdown view, click the Acadience metric you would like to explore further from the first dropdown.
Click the 1st dropdown to select the Acadience metric, the 2nd dropdown to filter for the students you would like to focus on, and the 3rd dropdown will default to Acadience Reading Composite Status.
From the Dashboard view, click the Data grid category on the left side-nav
By default, when generating a new spreadsheet, the most recent Acadience scores will be included. Literacy and Math measures are also available for users to select from.
Data from the previous administration(s) is available, but users must check those columns to see them included in the spreadsheet.
Check all relevant boxes and save by selecting the Apply # Columns
The # will indicate how many columns you've selected for display
Acadience Reading benchmark goals represent reading skills for a particular grade and time of year. Students in the at or above range have received a Composite Score of 70% or higher.
