On this page, you can see the status of your students' Instructional Practice assignments and scores for completed work. You can also use the header at the top of the page to go to Plan Assignments (to create new assignments for students). You will also see a Math Reports link, which takes you to a list of all math reports and dashboards.
Choosing the Class and Groups and the Timeframe to See Data for
To start, select the class and the school name shown after "I am viewing data for." The class name changes to "Edit Selection for" when you hover over it.
In the window that opens, choose the class or group to view data for. If you have access to more than one school and teacher, select the school and teacher in the first two columns. In the third column, choose the class(es) to view data for. Then, in the last column, choose the whole class or a group (if available). When you have finished, select Apply at the bottom of the window.
If you choose just a class, and not the groups within that class, you will only see assignments that were given to the whole class, not those given to groups. You must select a group to see that group's assignment data.
Select the second link to choose the time period that you want to view assignments for. You can choose the entire school year, the last 30 days, the last 7 days, the current marking period, today, or Custom Dates.
Which marking period is used?
Marking periods are set up in Renaissance software by administrators or non-teaching staff. This view only recognizes marking periods that have the type set to "Marking Period" (not other types such as quarters or semesters).
When you choose Marking Period as the time period to view Accelerated Math Instructional Practice data for, the software uses the current marking period that has the type set to Marking Period. If there is more than one marking period for the current date, the first one in the list is used.
You can't select Marking Period if no school marking periods are set up in your Renaissance software.
If you choose Custom Dates, click in each field and type the start and end dates, or choose each date from the calendar. When you're done, select Continue.
Viewing Assignment Plan Data
In the table, you can see the status of your students' Instructional Practice Assignments. First, you'll see the Assignment Plans that you have created for the selected classes and groups.
District administrators can see plans created for any class in any school. School administrators can see plans created for any class in their school. Teachers can see plans created for their own classes (including plans created by an administrator or team teacher). If a plan was created for more than one class or group, the plan will be shown, but you will only see assignment results for the selected class or group.
If some plans in the list have the same name, use the start dates to identify the time periods for each plan. Plans will have the name you selected when you created assignments. To see the subskills that are included in each plan, click the Assignment Plan name.
The list also includes Lesson Plans created in Planner that include math subskill practice assignments.
For the Assignment Plans, you'll see the following:
- Start Date: The first day in the range of dates that you chose for the Assignment Plan. This can help you identify plans for specific time periods.
- Assigned To: Who received the assignments - an entire class (shows the class name) or one or more groups within classes.
- Upcoming: The total number of assignment activities that have not yet been given to the students - in other words, the number of assignment activities that aren't yet in the Assignments list on the students' Home page. (Note that this is the number of activities, not the number of students.)
- Ready: The total number of assignment activities that have already been included in students' Assignments list on the Home page. These are ready for students to work on.
- Started: The total number of assignment activities that students have started, but not finished.
Scored: The total number of assignment activities that students have finished and that have been automatically scored. Notice that this number is a link. If you select it, you can then select the Results link to go to the Review Student Results view, where you can see the scores and the number of skills tested in the Assignment Plan.
You can sort the table by any of the columns by selecting the column heading. Selecting the heading again switches the sorting between ascending and descending order.
If you expand the Assignment Plan by clicking the arrow next to the name, you can see the number of activities for each of the students who received the assignments. Select a student's name to see that student's status and scores for each subskill in the Assignment Plan.
Viewing Assignment-Level (Subskill) Data
To see totals for each of the assignments that are included in an Assignment Plan, select the plan name.
You will then see a list of the assigned subskills. For each, you will see the overall average score for the students as well as the total number of upcoming, ready, started, and scored activities for the subskill in the Assignment Plan.
Notice that the number of activities in the Scored column is a link. If you select this activity, you can choose to see the results (scores) for the assignment across skills or for the assignment across item types. (For Accelerated Math Instructional Practice, note that there is only one item type: multiple-choice.) You can also choose to see information about students' responses to items on the assignment.
If you expand an assigned subskill by clicking the arrow next to its name, you can see the totals for each student who has activities assigned.
Viewing Student-Level (Subskill) Data
If you are viewing the assigned subskills in an Assignment Plan, you can see data for students for that subskill by clicking the subskill name.
You will then see the status of students for that subskill, including the overall average score, the date of the students' last action on the subskill, and the scores for practice work and the quiz (or Suspended for unfinished activities).
For scored work, select a score, then select Review to see the results and the student's responses. If you choose a score for Practice, and the student has completed more than one practice for the subskill, you will be reviewing the student's last practice. (You will also see options for seeing the performance by subskill or item type, item response data, or mastery.)
If you see a score in red, it is because a student did not pass the quiz or did not pass a practice for the subskill after three tries. When you click the score, you have the option to Reassign the subskill so that the student can begin work again after you have helped the student to understand. For more information, see Assignments That Require Intervention.
If you select a student's name, you can see the student's scores and status for all Accelerated Math Instructional Practice work. (If any students have assignments that require intervention at this level, you will also see the word "Intervene.")
