Equity Feature Spotlight: Summary Assessments
What it Does:
Users can create a repository for entering and tracking scores, non-academic information, or demographics. For example, some districts have created summary assessments for intervention tracking purposes to quickly view multiple measures to see if a student is at risk. Other users track behavior incidents, parent-teacher conference participation, and bus routes. This simple spreadsheet can then be quickly and easily added to a custom report that contains academic measures and other demographic details already housed in Illuminate. This is an incredibly powerful tool allowing teachers, administrators, and other school staff to store any data they find is useful in achieving student and teacher success.
How it Helps Improve Equity:
So much of what teachers are responsible to track in the classroom is based on academic achievements. Having a quick way to store other critical information about their students allows teachers to track multiple measures so that students do not slip through the cracks. For example, Buena Park created a custom report and form letter to pull together all academic and non-academic indicators so that teachers can look through all of their students with a few simple clicks instead of manually pulling the information for just the students whose scores indicate they are in need of extra supports.
