Focus

Who is the intended audience?

Teachers and administrators

What data is reported?

For each student, teacher, or site: performance level or % of students in each level, % of questions aligned with each standard that were answered correctly, % of questions aligned with each question group that were answered correctly, each of these #s subtracted from the average of the group as a whole.

How is the data reported?

You see a list of students, teachers, or sites depending on how you run the report.

Caution

Peer comparison is a component of Response to Intervention (RTI). Each “Compared to Group” section is just like the table above it, except that it subtracts each score from the group average. For example, Student A earned a 40% correct on a Standard 1.2, but Class Average for Standard 1.2 was 60%, so Student A shows a -20 for Standard 1.2 (this is how he compares to his peers on this standard).
