What data is reported?
Total number of students tested, percent of students overall proficient and not proficient, percent of students in each overall performance level, the percent of students at each level by claim.
How is the data reported?
Each section belongs to the grouping specified. Overall results are in a table and bar graph, and Claim level data is in a stacked bar graph. The report is drill-down to provide a list and custom report with the students in each performance level.
This report uses the 'Group Students By' feature to give users a choice as to how they wish to group students on the report include: Comprehensive (All students Selected), Site, Grade Level, Course, Teacher, or Section.
The report also has a 'Use Testing Windows' feature to allow users to match the CA Dashboard Criteria. Please note the numbers will not be exact but should be close to what the CDE's website shows when Use Testing Windows input control is set to Yes.
The Use Testing Window > Yes filter uses the following logic: If the students enrollment end date is greater than or equal to the SBA files End of Test Window 1 date, then the student will display on the report. Otherwise, they will not.
