What data is reported?
% and # of students earning each performance level on a CST by grade level and overall (all grades combined).
How is the data reported?
Each separate report section/page belongs to a specific course (thus secondary Math has multiple pages/courses, whereas as elementary English-Language Arts typically has 1) at a specific site.
Note the impact your “academic year” and “test year” selections have on the report. For example, if I select students who were in my classroom (academic year) in 2010-2011 and took the CST (test year) in 2010-2011, I can see a report on how my students performed following my instruction. However, if it’s September and I select 2011-2012 as academic year and 2010-2011 as test year, I can see my incoming students’ performance (even though their performance won’t reflect my own instruction, it can be used as 1 of multiple indicators to help me plan initial instruction).
