In this lesson, you will review how to access to a reporting feature that will allow you to examine the K-8 assessment data of your school in Insights.
Where to Start
When logged into Insights, go to the Reporting tab on the navigation bar, and click on K to 8 Assessments.
You will first choose the term data you want to compare, and then choose your compare types.
These compare options will will break your student population into IEP, ELL, Cohort, etc. Every compare you choose will show as an additional bar graph when you execute the chart, allowing you side by side comparisons of those groups.
Under the plot option, you will be able to choose which exam data you want to show in your end graph. Since K-8 Assessments fall under Math or ELA, you will can select one at a time or both. The assessments you selected to plot will be separated by the compare types you chose.
For example, if comparing multiple cohort years, each year will have its own ELA/Math bar.
Your next step is to choose filter options. These filter options will limit the graph you create to only show a specific group of students. For example if looking at your whole school, if you filter for Gender>males, you will only see male students. Filtering will allow you to look at smaller populations in your compare types.
After selecting the data you want to see, click on "Execute Chart".
This will create a bar graph showing the compare, plot, and filter data that you selected. The example below shows the ELA and Math results (2 plots) for the school and grade levels 4 and 5 (3 compares).
Clicking on a section of the graph will break down to a list of students within that section of the graph. You will be provided the information you searched for, as well as essential biographical data about the student.
If at any point you would like to save your search for future use, you can select "Save Chart" at the top of your screen next to your filter settings.
From here you can name your search, share it with other staff members, or save it to your homepage.
