The Goals Met Report shows you which students have (or have not) met their goals for a marking period or the school year. You can choose which goals to include (average book level, average percent correct, and/or points). This report only applies to goals set using the goal models for grades 3-5 and grades 6 and up; for K-2 goals that use badges, see the Accelerated Reader Record Book.
Students must meet all the goals that you select in order to be in the Met Goal list. Those who haven't met all goals and those who don't have goals will be in the Did Not Meet Goal list.
Note: Teachers may choose to use reading range goals instead of average book level goals; reading range goals are not included on this report.
To generate the report, follow these steps:
- On the Home page, select Accelerated Reader Independent Reading; then, select Reports from the menu. (If you select Reports on the Home page instead, select Accelerated Reader / Reading Practice if a menu opens when you select the tile.)
- Scroll down to the Certifications and Achievement section of the page and select the Goals Met Report tile.
- Select Change Students or Choose Students.
- Choose the students to include in the report. Teachers can only choose students in their own classes and groups.
- In the popup window, if there is a Schools column, select a school. (This column isn't available if you only have access to one school.)
- If the Teachers column is available, at the top of the column, choose either All Teachers (to choose all the teachers in the school) or Select Teachers (to choose specific teachers; check the ones you want in the list). This column is not available to teachers unless they are assigned to more than one school.
- At the top of the Classes column, choose either All Classes (to choose all the classes for the teachers) or Select Classes (to choose specific classes; check the ones you want in the list).
- Teachers and school staff will also see a Groups column. At the top of the Groups column, choose either All Groups or Select Groups; if you choose Select Groups, check the groups that you want to include. The first choice in the column is "Whole Class" or "Whole Classes"; choose this to report on the class(es) as a whole. Below that, you will see groups you created.
- You may need to scroll to the right to see the Students column. At the top of the Students column, choose either All Students (to choose all the students) or Select Students (to choose specific students; check the ones you want in the list).
You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then typing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.
When you are done making your choices, select Apply (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
- If you want to use demographic data to focus the report on specific students, select Choose Demographics.
How to choose demographics
By default, the "All" option is chosen for ethnicity, gender, language (the students' primary language, if specified), and grade level. To focus the report on specific groups, choose the "Select" option at the top of the appropriate column and then check your selections in that column. Note that ethnicity, gender, primary language, and grade level may be specified for students when you add them to the software, but only grades are required; other information may not be available for your students.
In the example above, the user has selected one Language and three Grade Levels, while leaving Ethnicity and Gender at the default "All" options. Note: The Filter Reports by Ethnicity user permission may be set to prevent the use of ethnicities as a filter.
By default, the "All" option is chosen for Characteristics. To focus the report on students with specific characteristics, choose Select Characteristics; then, check the characteristics that you are interested in. You must also choose any or all above the check boxes to specify whether students with any of the selected characteristics will be included in the report or only those with all of the selected characteristics.
In the example above, the user selected two Characteristics (ADA and ESL). Because any is selected, the report will include students who are ADA, ESL, or both. If all had been selected, only students who are both ADA and ESL would be included. Note: The Filter Reports by Characteristics user permission may be set to prevent the use of characteristics as a filter.
Once you have finished choosing demographic options, select Apply at the bottom of the window to save your choices (or Cancel to close the window without saving your choices).
- Next, choose how you want to group the students on the report. You can group students by classes/group or by grade, or you can choose not to group the students and to list all students alphabetically.
- By default, the report will include the current school year. If you want to see goals for a specific marking period, select the Marking Period field, then choose the marking period to include on the report.
- Next, choose which students to include: those who have met all of the goals you check, those who did not meet all goals, or both students who met the goals and those who did not. Then, check the goals that you want to include in the report. Remember that students must meet all of the goals that you include in order to be in the "Met Goal" list. If your classes are using reading range goals instead of average book level goals, do not check the Average Book Level box.
- Select Update Report under the report options.
- The report will open below the report options, showing the students in each category that you included.
