What data can I see on the Assessments Report?

Who can do this with default capabilities?

Teachers

Freckle's assessments can cover all grade level standards or be customized to focus on a particular domain, a particular standard, or multiple domains and standards. They can be used to monitor progress throughout the year, as end-of-unit exams, or as more frequent formative assessments at various points throughout a unit.

These assessments allow teachers to track student performance and progress throughout the year that can then help inform their teaching. Teachers have access to detailed information about student performance and progress right on their Teacher Home.

Checking class progress on a benchmark assessment

To check completion progress on an assessment, select Report in the Math or ELA sections of the left navigation bar; then, select Assessments.

You will see a list of the assessments you've assigned, and the number of students who have completed each assessment (out of the total students to whom the assessment was assigned).

The assessments for the selected class are shown in a table, including the date each was assigned, the assessment types, the average accuracy of the students who have completed them, and the number of students who have completed them.

Monitoring class performance on a specific assessment

In the Assessments Report, you can see more details about student performance on a specific assessment by selecting See assessment report in the row for the assessment.

The in-depth details are divided across four tabs:

Tab 1—Student performance

You can see how students performed on the specific assessment, and the colors quickly show you which students may require special attention.

The Students tab. For each student, the date and time they finished the assessment is listed, along with the number of questions they answered, the amount of time they spent, and their score.

Tab 2—Domain performance

On this tab, you can see how your class performed on the domain(s) assigned. Furthermore, you can expand each domain to see how each student performed in the given domain.

The Domains tab. Each domain that was included in the assessment is listed, along with the number of questions for that domain, and the average accuracy of student responses to those questions. Selecting the blue arrow to the left of each domain shows accuracy levels for students, who are grouped based on their performance.

Tab 3—Standard performance

Similar to the Domain tab, you can see how your class performed on a specific standard on an assessment. This can help you determine which standards to re-teach with your class. You can also drill into a specific standard and see how each student performed on that standard.

The Standards tab. Each standard that was included in the assessment is listed, along with the number of questions in that assessment releated to each standard, and the accuracy of student responses to those questions. Selecting the blue question mark next to a standard gives more information about it. Selecting the blue arrow to the left of each standard shows accuracy levels for students, who are grouped based on their performance.

Tab 4—Question performance

Similar to the Domain and Standard tabs, the questions tab shows you the exact questions that were included in the assessment, and how your students did on each question. This helps you pinpoint exactly what types of questions might be tripping students up. Since Benchmark Assessments include bucket questions and multiple answer questions, this is a good way to get students comfortable with these question types.

The Questions tab. Each standard that was included in the assessment is listed, along with the questions in that assessment releated to each standard, the answers, and the average accuracy of student responses. Selecting the blue question mark next to a standard gives more information about it. Selecting the blue arrow to the left of each standard shows accuracy levels for students, who are grouped based on their performance. Select the View Question link on the right to see the question the same way the students saw it.

Monitoring class growth on a series of assessments

If you've created the same assessment multiple times, Freckle will provide you with a report showing how your class has grown and improved on that assessment over time. You'll know this is available because See growth report will be readily visible on the Assessments Report home page (as shown below).

Selecting the Assessment itself will trigger the Assessments page to open new rows for every instance in which that assessment was taken by a student or multiple students in your class. You can see the dates and scores, and view individual assessment reports for more specific details on performance.

Selecting See growth report will take you to a new page where you can multiple tabs of data related to student growth on Freckle assessments. The Students tab will let you see exactly how each student performed on previous instances of the assessment, and how they've grown over time.

The Assessment Growth Report, with the Students tab selected. For each student, the dates and percent correct for prior assessments are shown, along with a calculation of their overall growth.

The Domains tab will focus on improvement over time in specific domains (depending on which domains were covered in that assessment). The Standards tab will appear in the exact same format as the Domains tab, but will be focused on specific standards and growth over time on those standards.

The Assessment Growth Report, with the Domains tab selected. For each domain that was included in assessments, the dates and percent correct for questions about that domain are included, along with a calculation of overall growth.

These detailed reports will help you set your class up for success in state testing and beyond.
