This is an example of a Class Summary Report. I know it is a little small here, but it will do I hope! The Class Summary Report is intended to give you a bird’s eye view of how your class is doing. In less than 10 seconds, you should be able to determine an area your students are doing well in and an area they are struggling with.
In this example, the class is doing well in a number of areas. Algebra is one area where there is very little red. The class is having some trouble with measurement.
Once an area has been identified as a strength or weakness, teachers should ask themselves this question: “Was the focus of my instruction on this area just before the assessment?”
If the answer is yes and the question is about an area of strength, CELEBRATE! Your teaching strategies are working for this group of students.
If the answer is no and the question is about an area of strength, use that information to adjust your plans. Your students already have a firm foundation in the area.
If the answer is yes and the question is about an area of weakness, reconsider your strategies. Investigate new ways to reach your students. Check out some new resources on DE Streaming!
If the answer is no and the question is about an area of weakness, you’re informed! Your students are going to need lots of support when you get there
Until next time!
