Hi there 🌅
In collaboration with the NYC Department of Education, the Portal now integrates a variety of academic screener data. Our goal is to make it easy for you to identify patterns and trends in student performance in key academic areas across screeners, to easily view screener data alongside other key student performance metrics, and to identify students who may need specific attention or support.
This article will provide an overview of the key features available for monitoring Acadience screener data in the Portal. Happy exploring! As always, feel free to share your feedback at email@example.com.
Your Acadience Data
Before diving into features, it may be helpful to know what data from the Acadience screener (previously known as DIBELS assessment) is available in the Portal and where it comes from. Acadience data is available for K-6 students and is sent to us nightly by the NYC DOE. Each day you should expect to see any changes in your Acadience data from the prior day reflected in the Portal by around 9AM. The Portal includes students' overall composite scores, benchmark status, and literacy measures for each screener administration, as well as these data points at the domain-level.
The Dashboard highlights key Acadience metrics such as the percentage of 2nd-grade students at or above benchmark status.
To access the Dashboard scroll to the Screeners category to view all of the available Screener Tiles.
Currently you can use these Dashboards to:
Identify your students who are are at or above benchmark status according to the most recent Acadience data: Learn more here
Click a Dashboard Tile to navigate to the Breakdown where you can apply filters and compare metrics across a variety of subgroups - by grade or class, ethnicity, special population status and more.
Acadience Data in the Screeners List
The Screener List view gives you the ability to review the overall placement and composite score and hone in on specific subgroups of students to quickly identify groups of students who may need additional support.
To access the Screener List click Screeners from the Left-side Navigation.
Currently you can use the List to:
View 2nd-grade students at or above benchmark status: Learn more here
Use the dropdowns at the top of the page to configure your List by selecting a Focus (time period), Filter (group of students), and Grouping (way to group the students).
