-  If you want to acquire a list of all 7th graders, simply select 7 under Grade Level, and then click Search.

Advanced Search Filters

Under the basic student search filters, you will find a variety of other areas you can utilize to search for students. To see what filters in each area are available, simply click the green arrow.

Using these features can make it easy to find a specialized group of students at once.

1. Use the dropdown menus to select any search criteria you would like. For example, if I wanted a list of all of my EL students, I might use the 'English Proficiency' filter and set it to EL.

2. Once criteria is selected, click Search.

*Note- You can use multiple filters in different areas to narrow your search results.


If your search criteria applies to more than one student, you will see a list of students. Simply click on the name of the student you want to view his or her report.
