Year 3 teacher Tom wants to see an overview of his students’ progress across the school year. Whether it’s a daily or weekly summary; in preparation for parents’ evening; or at the end of each term, Tom needs accurate reporting data to give him visibility of his students’ improvement and achievement.
He also wants to dive deeper and find out where he needs to provide intervention or extension to help his students target their strengths and weaknesses.
Tom knows he can rely on the Reporting module of the Teacher Console to provide all the information he needs to measure his students’ progress and inform the next steps in their learning.
Unlock the power of the box plots
The Achievement and Improvement Report displays student results for each topic in stacked box plots. This allows for comparison of student achievement across topics.
Tom can easily identify the lowest and highest score achieved in his group, and clearly see where the majority of his students are performing. The box plot gives immediate visibility on the strengths and weaknesses of Tom’s class as a whole.
Student data to drive feedback and reflection
From here, Tom simply clicks on the box plot to see progress and achievement for each individual student.
The graph displays all students in the group, according to their average score for the topic. In this example, Isaac has achieved the highest result, while John’s score is lowest.
Tom is able to select the name of each student to see individual results for all activities within that topic. He selects to see Catharine’s results in more detail.
Individual Student Improvement Reports
The chart shows the first, highest and latest result for each activity, and the improvement between the first and latest attempt.
In the image above, we can see that when Tom first assigned Place Value – Thousands, Catharine scored 4 out of 10. He reassigned this activity and she achieved 9 out of 10, an improvement of 50%. Tom can analyse this data and may conclude that Catharine has been working hard throughout the year and has improved her results between her first and latest attempts for most activities.
The student charts give Tom detailed data to inform student feedback, further instruction and intervention where it’s needed, so that his students are supported at every step of their learning.
