Customizable Progress Report

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrators, District Staff, School Administrators, School Staff, Teachers

The Customizable Progress Report compares student achievement in one or two products over time; it shows you scores for a grade or school on each assessment and the change in those scores over time.

When you print the Customizable Progress Report, you must choose the students to include; you can also choose a reporting parameter group, which allows you to select students with a specific ethnicity, language, gender, characteristic, or grade, or students who were enrolled in their schools before the date you specify. You can choose the products or external sources to include, the subjects, the score categories, the reporting periods, the grouping options, and whether to include the mean or the median. As you choose these options, you can go back and change your previous choices by selecting one of the links on the left side of the page.

  1. If you see the link shown below on the Home page, under Dashboards and Reporting, select Consolidated Reports.
  2. Select Customizable Progress.
  3. If the report is not available, it is probably because you had only one reporting period the last time that data was consolidated. The report requires at least two reporting periods so it can compare results between the two.

    • If you want to narrow the group further, you can choose a reporting parameter group from the drop-down list or create a new group by selecting Create New or Edit Selected. Reporting parameter groups allow you to select students with a specific ethnicity, gender, language, characteristic, or grade or students who were enrolled in their schools before a specific date.
    • The options that are available to you depend on the available data and your role in the program. If you select a school name, you will see the teachers or classes listed. You can select Teachers or Classes to choose what to view. If you're viewing teachers, you can then select a teacher name to see that teacher's classes.
  4. Check the box for each Renaissance Place product or external source that you want to include in the report. (You can select up to two products or sources.) The list includes products that are on your site and registered by the district or at least one school; it also includes external sources (such as standardized test results) that may have been imported.

    When you're ready to continue, select Next >.

  5. On the left side of most pages in the wizard, you will see a sample report. If you want to see a larger version of the sample, select it.

    To go back, select < Back at any point in this procedure, or select one of the links in the gray bar on the left side of the page.

  6. Subjects are listed under the name of each included Renaissance Place product or external source. For products or sources that only address one subject, that subject is already checked, and the check mark cannot be removed. To select an additional subject from another product or source, check the box for each subject.

    When you're ready to continue, select Next >.

  7. Check the box for each score category that you want to include.

    Although kindergarteners can take Star Math tests, data for kindergarteners has not been norm-referenced. Therefore, on this report, no values will be shown for Percentile Rank (PR), Percentile Rank Range, and/or Normal Curve Equivalents (NCE) for kindergarteners.

    After choosing the score categories, select Next >.

  8. Reporting periods can be added or changed by district and school administrators.

    The report will show student progress from one reporting period to the other. You must select two reporting periods for each score category included in the report. To do this, check the box for each reporting period.

    When you're ready to continue, select Next >.

    • First, use the Group by drop-down list to choose whether to group by school, grade, teacher, or class.
      • If you chose a school on the Select Students page, then choosing School in this drop-down list will mean the students will not be grouped.
      • If you chose the district on the Select Students page, then choosing District in this drop-down list will mean the students will not be grouped.
    • Next, use the Then list drop-down list to choose which items you want to list within each group.

    When you're ready to continue, select Next >.

  9. The next page will list the information you've chosen to include on the report.
    • Choose whether to include the mean (average) or median (middle) scores by selecting one of the options below the reporting data.
    • Finally, choose whether you want a list of all the options you've chosen earlier printed on the report. (This option is checked by default.)
  10. When you are ready to continue, select View Report.
  11. The Report Progress page will open while the report is being generated. Then, the report will open in a separate window. Use the options in your PDF reader to save or print the report.
