What data is reported?

% and # of students earning each performance level on a CST by class period.

How is the data reported?

Each separate report section/page belongs to a specific class period/section taught by a single teacher. Results are tabled at the top and charted at the bottom.

Caution

Note the impact your “academic year” and “test year” selections have on the report. For example, if I select students who were in my classroom (academic year) in 2010-2011 and took the CST (test year) in 2010-2011, I can see a report on how my students performed following my instruction. However, if it’s September and I select 2011-2012 as academic year and 2010-2011 as test year, I can see my incoming students’ performance (even though their performance won’t reflect my own instruction, it can be used as 1 of multiple indicators to help me plan initial instruction).
