Regular communication and collaboration with parents can do wonders to support success throughout the Response to Intervention (RTI) process. Illuminate offers parent letters that give parents a clear, jargon-free picture of their children’s struggles, strengths, and performance. Illuminate also allows teachers to easily and quickly post information (such as assessment scores, grades, notes, etc.) to the parent portal where any parent with assigned access can monitor his or her child’s progress.
The Student & Parent Letters can be generated as a personalized parent letter, which can be printed or downloaded (e.g., and emailed) as an Adobe pdf file. It communicates the child’s score, which questions he or she missed, which he or she got right, how questions were answered, on which standards he or she did not fully demonstrate mastery, and on which standards he or she did.
You can easily communicate a students’ assessment history, transcript grades, language proficiency, special education status, and more by generating his or her Student Profile Report (the Analyze
Assessment Results to Determine Student Needs section of this manual shows you how easy this is to generate).
This report gives parents a clear, visual picture of their children’s academic profile, and can also be printed or downloaded (e.g., and emailed) as an Adobe pdf file (this and more download options are available for all reports in Illuminate).
Teachers can quickly and easily post information (such as assessment scores, homework scores, grades, notes, etc.) to the parent portal where any parent with assigned access can monitor his or her child’s progress...
...This provides parents with an immediate, timely link to their children’s progress, as well as an extra line of communication with teachers.
It Doesn’t Stop There
You’ve seen the other types of reports Illuminate provides and allows for. Any that are student-specific can be considered for sharing, as well.
You might also be interested in other chapters and lessons within the Illuminate Help system for assistance performing the actions described in the "RTI" manual for more help with your RTI implementation. For example, lessons in the "Assessments," "Reports," and "Summary Assessments," manuals might prove especially helpful, depending on the actions you wish to perform.
