Description: This is an abstract for the CST Cluster Scores-Teacher List by Course, which lists each teacher’s courses with their average performance on a CST as a whole and on each of its content clusters.
Purpose: Identifies what clusters students excelled or struggled with on the CST. Also, how a course performed as a whole in relation to AYP.

What data is reported?
For each course for each teacher: # of students who took the test, average scale score and performance level, and average % of questions answered correctly for each content cluster; you can opt to change the latter scores to the difference between the course’s score and that of another (such as SMP, explained below).
How is the data reported?
All courses for each teacher are listed with their average scores. A summary of results is on the last page. You may use the Department filter to narrow down the teachers and courses included in the report.
Content clusters vary in difficulty, so a course’s highest % correct does not necessarily indicate its strength. Change Report Type to Compare to State Min. Prof. to compare each course’s % correct to the average % correct earned by students statewide. The system will calculate Course Score – SMP Score = # for you so you can identify possible strengths (highest #s) and possible weaknesses (lowest #s). Comparisons to State Minimally Advanced or each course in the report are also possible.
