Diagnostic -- Other Reading Report

Use the Diagnostic - Other Reading Report to summarize your students' performance on Other Reading Quizzes.

Other Reading quiz performance should be reviewed weekly by teachers, administrators, librarians, and reading specialists to identify students who are having problems and may need intervention. Because the report uses diagnostic - or "at risk" - codes to identify students who may be struggling, it is not an appropriate tool for publicly posting a class's progress. The student performance information on the report should be treated as confidential.

For each student included on the report, the program shows a diagnostic code (if one applies), the number of Other Reading Quizzes the student has passed and the total number the student has taken in the reporting period, the average book level of the passed quizzes, the average percentage of questions the student got correct (and the goal). The report shows totals (or averages) of this information for the students in each section.

The report will also show the total word count for the quizzes the student passed. For the latest Other Reading Quiz for each student, the report shows the quiz number, quiz language, date it was taken, book level, and the percentage of questions the student answered correctly.
