Customizable Status Report

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrators, District Staff, School Administrators

The Customizable Status Report is a Consolidated report which shows how students in each group did on selected assessments in the reporting periods you selected.

When you print the Customizable Status 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 a date you specify. You can choose the products or external sources to include, the subjects, the score categories, the reporting periods, the column layout and grouping options, and whether to include the mean or the median. As you choose these options, you can select one of the links on the left side of the page to go back and change a previous selection.

  1. If you see the link shown below on the Home page, under Dashboards and Reporting, select Consolidated Reports.
  2. Select Customizable Status.
    • 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.
    • Click Select next to the district, school, teacher, or class that you want to include in the report.
    • You can include up to five 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 of data that may have been imported.
    • When you're ready to continue, select Next >.
  3. 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.

    • 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 >.
    • Check the box for each score category that you want to include.
    • For definitions of the scores in Star Reading, Star Early Literacy, and Star Math, you can print the "Definitions" resource for each product or use the search field above to search the help for those products.
    • After choosing the score categories, select Next >.
    • You can select 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 >.
    • For each product or external source, select the drop-down list , and choose the column number that you want that product to appear in. For example, if you chose Star Reading and Star Math, and you wanted Star Reading to appear first, you would choose Column 1 for Star Reading and Column 2 for Star Math. Select Reorder to update the product list to reflect the column order you have chosen.
    • Next, 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.
    • After choosing the grouping option, 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 >.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.)
  6. When you are ready to continue, select View Report.
  7. 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.
