Get Answers to Your Most Important Questions
As an instructor who wants nothing more than to ensure the best possible future for your students, Common Core assessments present a number of issues. You likely have questions, such as:
- Which of my students are at risk for reading, language or math failure?
- Who is not making sufficient progress to keep up with their peers?
- What are the optimal instructional groups for my class?
- How are my students progressing in their learning of the Common Core State Standards?
In the past, getting answers to these questions was easier said than done. Even with advanced software, it was hard to drilldown to the student level and truly understand how each of your students were performing.
That's why Track My Progress was developed - to provide that kind of insight in a format that was easy and accessible for instructors.
The below chart is taken from Track My Progress and shows Common Core State Standards learning on a standardized scale for each student.
The longer the bar, the more progress the student has made. At risk students are indicated in red. These students are at or below the 25th percentile and are at risk for failure. The students with yellow horizontal progress bars are borderline. They are near the at-risk threshold. The next performance group is blue. The highest performance group is green. These four colors indicate instructional groups for your class.
Interim Progress Tracking of Common Core Standards
By drilling down on the progress bar for a specific student you see the test scores for that student. The vertical progress bars indicate the scale score for each assessment period. Rolling over a specific test provides the scale score and progress. Clicking the “View Test” link will bring you to a list of each test question that the student saw for that test.
See Which Standards Were Assessed
Drill down further to see each test question the student saw, the Common Core State Standard it measures, the difficulty level of the question and whether the student answered correctly or incorrectly.
By drilling down on the question from the test summary you can see the test question just as the student saw it during the test session. You have the option to see the correct answer, or the answer the student provided. You can even provide feedback to us on the test question.
Bring Insights to Parent Conferences and Team Meetings
One of the great challenges faced by instructors is sharing your insights. Whether in a parent-teacher conference or a team meeting, how do you quickly and succintly highlight a student's progress and your insights regarding their needs?
With Track My Progress, you can quickly display an overall progress meter for one specific student:
Above is a track of the overall progress for the Common Core State Standards subjects of Reading, Language and Math. Additionally, you see the domains that support each subject. The progress bars are again colored red, yellow, blue and green to indicate the performance category of the student for a specific CCSS subject or domain.
With this approach, you can have more specific, targeted, and insightful conversations with students' parents and your peers alike. If you're ready to learn more about Track My Progress and how it can help to improve assessment performance, start your trial or contact us today:
