Reading Trends

Reading Trends is one of the views available in New Reports. This view is available to teachers, staff, and administrators.

The Reading Trends view tells you more about your students' reading based on Reading Practice Quizzes and Other Reading Quizzes (including article quizzes). You can see top and bottom results for the number of quizzes taken, quiz ratings for Reading Practice Quizzes, or percent correct among students in the classes you select. Based on your selections, you can see these results for:

  • fiction, nonfiction, or both
  • books, articles, or both
  • specific classes or students
  • specific timeframes

Making the Selections

To start, use the drop-down lists at the top of the page to choose what you want to see:

  • Choose whether to show the top results (highest ratings, greatest number of quizzes taken, or highest percent correct) or bottom results.
  • Choose whether to see results for fiction, nonfiction, or both:
  • Choose whether to see results for books, articles, or both:
  • Choose whether to see the ratings that students chose (how much they liked Reading Practice titles), the number of quizzes taken, or percent correct.
  • Click the class and student information to choose which class and students to include.
  • Then, in the first column, select a school if necessary.

    In the Classes column, select one class.

    In the Students column, you can also choose whether to include all students in the class or to select specific students. If you choose Select Students, check the students that you want to include.

    When you've finished, select Apply.

  • Choose the time period to view data for. "Marking period" is the current marking period. "School Year" means the current school year.
  • If you want to set the start and end dates for the data you want to see, choose Custom. Then, select the start date in the calendar to the left, and select the end date for the time period in the calendar to the right. When you've finished, click Apply. The dates that you've chosen will be shown at the top of the page.

Viewing the Data

Once you've made the selections, a graph will show you the data that you chose to view. The example below shows top percent correct results for quizzes taken by a specific class.

For more information about a specific quiz, select the quiz title to see the ratings students have given the title, the number of times it was taken (quiz frequency), the average percent correct, the quiz number, the book level (ATOS or Lexile® Measure, depending on the school setting), and the language.
