Proponents of Response to Intervention (RTI) sometimes forget the importance of sharing goals and progress with students. DnA includes student letters, small slips, and more to facilitate this communication.
The Student & Parent Letters can be also generated as a personalized student letter, using student-friendly language and simplifying results. This can be printed or downloaded (e.g., and emailed) as an Adobe pdf file to share with students. It communicates his or her 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.
Note how the language in the student version of this report differs from the parent version in the previous section. Students who are struggling are especially in need of tools like this that make performance easier for them to understand.
Student Small Slips
To give students quick feedback without wasting much paper, generate Student Small Slips...
...These are customized by clicking options, like showing the answer key or not showing the answer key, showing standards that require work or not showing standards, etc. They allow you to print multiple student slips on the same sheet of paper, and give students a small, “student hand held” version of performance free of too much text or graphics.
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.
