Once Smarter Balanced results have been uploaded into SchoolCity Suite, the data can be viewed and analyzed by using three SBAC Reports. The SBAC By Student Report displays overall student performance data as well as performance in each claim area. The SBAC Demographics Profile Report displays subgroup performance data by School, Grade, and Teacher (depending on User Role). The Summary Report displays overall performance or claim performance by School, Grade, and Teacher (depending on User Role). This document will review the SBAC Report By Student.
From the Top Menu Bar, select Reports, then click on the SBAC tab to view the reports.
Or, from the Launchpad, click on the REPORTS flip card. On the flipped side, click on the right arrow at the bottom, then select SBAC to go to the reports.

View Students by Performance Level
- Click on the desired section of the pie chart.

- The students in the chosen performance level will be listed below. (You may also check the desired performance level in the table to view only those students below without using the pie chart.)
- Students can be filtered for one grade level, and are listed alphabetically by default. The columns can be reordered by clicking on the column header. In the example below, students were ordered from lowest to highest by clicking once on the ELA Literacy Overall header. Reorder students from highest to lowest by clicking on the header again.
Note: Only one column can be reordered at one time.
Create a Student Group
- Create a Student Group by clicking on the box next to each student’s name or click on the box in the teal header next to Student ID to select all students in the list. In the example, the bottom six students were selected for grouping for extra support.
- Click on Create Group.
- Add students to a new group and give the group a name, or add students to an existing group. Then click on Save. A message will appear confirming this action.
- Click OK to continue.
