Reports for Teachers

Bubble sheet scanning with a doc cam or Apple device; clickers; Engage & Learn on student computers or mobile devices; remediation activities; they all produce automatically-sorted reports and heat maps so you can make the most of your teaching time.


The Sub-Tabs Under the Reports Tab
At the top of the Reports tab, you'll see four sub-tabs: Sessions, Aggregated, Profiles, and Action Plan.

  • The Sessions sub-tab contains reports based on a single session (a "session" is the raw data from one test graded for one class). For example, all the various reports focusing on the 5th-Grade English Test you graded for Period 1.
  • The Aggregated sub-tab contains reports that consolidate all the sessions for the same assessment that was given to multiple classes. For example, if you gave Geography Test 1 to Class A, Class B, Class C, the aggregated tab will automatically show them in one report called "Geography Test," showing how all your students are doing at a glance.
  • The Profiles sub-tab allows you to enter a date range and look at all the scores for a student or group of students over that date range, or to look at their comprehension on the standards they've been tested on.
  • The Action Plan sub-tab guides you through creating an action plan for a given assessment for remediation or future strategies, based on the data. Click the "New" button to pull down a list of your sessions to pick from and follow the prompts to think through the data. This feature is based on strategies from successful turnaround schools in Dallas ISD. 


Sessions

At the top of the Sessions sub-tab, you'll see a "Search" field which will allow you to search for any report in your account.

You can place a checkmark on the left side next to multiple sessions and then click "Delete Selected," or use the "Compare Selected" feature to see great side-by-side comparison reports of the selected sessions.

Click the "Actions" menu on the right of each session to Re-Activate a session and add grades for a student that may have been absent the first time, Edit Key & Standards and correct errors in the key or add/change standards, Export a CSV file for importing into your district's gradebook of choice (contact support for details), Create Action Plan, or Delete a session.

        


Click a session name to expand it and see the available reports. You'll see report categories Report Summary, Student Analysis, Item Analysis, Lesson Profile, and Sub-Group Analysis. Each has several reports under it.

Finally, each report will have options at the bottom to Print and/or Export to CSV

We've aimed to make the reports themselves self-explanatory, and since detailing every possible way to slice and dice them in this article may be cumbersome and add confusion, this article sticks to basic concepts and navigation of the Reports tab. However, some specific terms and concepts used in reports are subjects of other specific articles (for example: "Point biserial"). We recommend you watch the video at the top for some specific ways to use reports quickly, and then dive in and poke around! If you have specific questions about the details given in any report, please use the "Support" button for help.


Aggregated

The Aggregate Report sub-tab will automatically aggregate assessments given to multiple classes into a single report showing all students together. Click on the names of the assessments listed to expand and view the detailed aggregated reports. The report type is identical to Session Reports discussed above, with the addition of more detailed Item Analysis table views.

Profiles

In the profiles sub-tab, you can enter a date range (it automatically has the last week's dates), select a student or one of your current classes, and click "Generate Reports" to see all the comprehension scores for individual sessions that fit your settings.

 Action Plans

To create an Action Plan in the Action Plan sub-tab, click "New," then pick from the available assessments. A research-based form will walk you through considering your class's weak points as well as individual students, based on the standards breakdown. Set the cut-off filter at the top to focus in a little more. This Action Plan was developed in partnership with several successful turnaround schools in Dallas ISD, and has helped teams across the country to draw helpful conclusions and successfully strategize.

Campus Performance Reports (Texas Only)

Texas schools are deeply impacted by how they perform according to Texas Domain reports, which can be complex and time-consuming to calculate. ALL In Learning makes tracking Domain performance automatic. Now, when an admin designates an assessment for Domain reporting, teachers whose classes took that assessment will get to view their Domain 1 data.

You can click the class to see more detailed data.

 

 

How Cut Scores (Performance Categories) Work

Most reports will display color-coded performance level categories (cut scores). These cut score levels can be customized. 

  • You can adjust cut scores temporarily by dragging the sliders below the report (unless the scores are locked).
  • You can set cut scores for an assessment you distribute or share (in the distribution options) or manage those settings after the fact in the Lessons/Assessments tab's "Distributed Assessments" menu.
  • You can adjust cut scores for an assessment (if not locked) in any "Actions" menu next to a report in the Reports tab.
  • You can see what cut scores are applied (and set them up, if not overridden) by clicking "View Cut Scores" in the Legend section under any report that uses cut scores.

Cut Score Settings Hierarchy
Because cut scores can be customized by multiple parties, a hierarchy determines what cut scores will be used for different assessments and for different users' view (Admins, teachers, etc.) or for a given assessment.

Cut Score Hierarchy

Distribution with “Lock Cut Scores” Setting 
District and campus admins can distribute with a “lock cut scores” setting turned on. This forces all reports of the distributed assessment to use the distributor’s cut scores and cannot be overridden by any report viewer.

“Closest stakeholder” Cut Scores
If “lock cut scores” is not turned on, then the “nearest” cut scores are applied. For example, for a campus admin login, campus-set cut scores override district-set cut scores.

  • Distribution-defined cut scores can be set in distribution settings. These take first priority.
  • Mastery Processes always have their own custom cut scores.
  • PLC-defined cut scores - PLCs have the option to set cut scores for their own report areas. These are only overridden by  distribution-defined cut scores.
  • State cut scores (such as STAAR) - If the campus or district “Use STAAR cut scores when possible” option is turned on, then these are applied for STAAR-assessed grades and subjects (i.e. 3rd Grade Math). However, campus or district grade and subject-specific cut scores override STAAR.
  • Campus-defined cut scores - If none of the above cut scores are applied, campus-defined cut scores get next-highest priority. Admins can set grade and subject-specific cut scores (i.e. 3rd Grade Math) as well as a default.
  • District-defined cut scores - If none of the above cut scores are applied, district-defined cut scores get next-highest priority. Admins can set grade and subject-specific cut scores (i.e. 3rd Grade Math) as well as a default.
  • ALL In Learning default cut scores - If none of the above cut scores are applied, ALL In Learning default cut scores will be used.
