Description: This is an abstract for the assessment Proficiency and Growth Quadrants Report, which provides a 4 quadrant report to display the number of students based on their performance and growth over two assessments.
Purpose: The Proficiency and Growth Quadrant report combines both proficiency and growth makes targeted, effective differentiation much simpler and can move us to low lift prescriptive analytics.

Who is the intended audience?
Teachers and Administrators.
What data is reported?
The number of students that fall into each quadrant displays on the report. When drilling in to a selected area, the student name, ID, pre-assessment percent correct, pre-assessment performance level, post-assessment percent correct, post-assessment performance level, percent growth, SPED status, EL status, and Gate status all appear in a table.
How is the data reported?
There are four quadrants that display the number of students that fall into High Growth, Low Growth, Low Proficiency, and High Proficiency. Cut points for proficiency and growth are determined by the user generating the report. Each quadrant can be drilled into to view a student list for the selected quadrant.
Horizontal rows, from top to bottom, display students that have gained more than one performance level, to students who have dropped 2 or more performance levels.
Vertically, from left to right, columns display students in band 1 on the left to band 4 on the right, in the Post Assessment.
Use Case and Function of a 4-Quad Report
A report that combines both proficiency and growth makes targeted, effective differentiation much simpler and can move us to low lift prescriptive analytics.
The 4 groups of students represented in each quadrant of the 4-Quad Report are in need of something that is in common with each other, but different from the other quadrants.
- high prof/high growth (Recognize and consider enrichment)
- high prof/low growth (Provide enrichment and check for engagement)
- low prof/high growth (Celebrate and continue to monitor for increased rigor level)
- low prof/low growth (Consider for intervention or modified core)
This becomes a powerful tool to use for differentiation in the classroom. Without this report, teachers must either rely on interpretation of the pivot table in order to take action on the data for the differentiated needs of their students, go through lengthy and complex custom reporting or in most cases, will default to differentiating on proficiency levels alone. Pre and Post-assessing is best practice but is often not common practice because the targeted use of the data gathered from a pre to a post is time consuming at best and unattainable at worst.
