Using the Aligned Assessments Report

The Aligned Assessments Report lists assessment results for those assessments (tests) that have been associated to a course you teach. This report can include the student's name and Student Number as well as any score fields that might be in use at your school.

To Run the Report:

  1. Use the "App Switcher" to switch to the Campus Tools area as illustrated below




  2. Confirm that the Year, and School fields are set as expected, and that the Section fields display the name of the course section you wish to produce a report for




    **Hint: If these fields do not display by default, click the "Down Arrow" to the left of the App Switcher to reveal the fields as illustrated below:






  3. Click Instruction>Reports>Aligned Assessments



  4. On the right hand side, under the "Which Reports to Include..." field, single click the name of the assessment you would like to include on the report to highlight it





    **Hint: if you want to include ALL of the assessments that are associated to your course, leave "All" highlighted as illustrated above. If you want to select more than one assessment, hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard while clicking the name of each test you want to include.



  5. To the right, confirm that any students you wish to include on the report are CHECKED, and uncheck any students you do not want to appear in the report




  6. In the "Select the score..." area check the boxes that relate to the type of score data you wish to see on the report which will depend on the type of test(s) given to the students.


    Use the following as a guide:




    **Hint:
    How will I know which score format was used when the test scores were entered? - contact your schools guidance department for assistance, otherwise you can check all of the options above which will display any score information available.


    • Date: Displays the date on which the score for the test was recorded

    • Scale Score: Displays the scale score the student received on the test, assuming scores for the test were collected in "Scale" format

    • Raw Score: Displays the raw score the student received on the test, assuming scores for the test were collected in "Raw" format

    • Percentile: Displays the percentile calculated for the student on the test, assuming scores for the test were calculated in "Percentile" format

    • Percent: Displays the percent correct the student received on the test, assuming scores for the test were calculated in "Percent" format (e.g. 60%)

    • Normal Curve Equivalent: Displays the normal curve equivalent for the score the student received on the test, assuming "normal curve equivalent" scores for the test were calculated.

    • Result: Displays result score the student received on the test, assuming scores for the test were collected in "Result" format (e.g. Pass or Fail)


  7. In the "Select data fields..." area, check or uncheck the boxes that represent the additional student data you wish to see on the report (if any) using the following as a guide:


    These Boxes:


    Control This Area on the Report:




    • Absent Count: Check this box to see a count of absences for the student from your class

    • Tardy Count: Check this box to see a count of the number of times the student was marked as tardy to your class

    • Discipline Incident Count: Check this box to see a count of the number of discipline incidents logged for the student in your class
  8. In the "Sort Options" area, mark the option that will sort the report in the desired format using the following as a guide:





    • Student Name: Mark this option to produce the report in this format




      **Hint: Use this option in "dual testing" scenarios which are situations where a student takes more than one test in a course (e.g. they will take BOTH the Regents ELA Common Core (CC) test --AND-- the Regents ELA - Jun test).

      Using this option in a "dual testing" scenario, then allows you to easily decipher which test score (out of a set of scores) you'd like to count towards the student's final average in the course.

      Example: In the sample image above, Emily took BOTH the Regents ELA (CC) - June and the Regents ELA - June tests (dual-tested). For those two tests, she got a 55 and a 76 respectively. Clearly the 76 should count towards Emily's final average in the course. If we were to factor in the fact that she also took the "January" version of the test in this example (3 tests), clearly the 86 should count instead.

      Unfortunately, once you decipher which of the test scores you want to count towards the student's average, there's no button to click to "automatically count" the score.

      Since this is the case, we suggest that you use the following steps in "Dual Testing" scenarios:

      • Step 1: Print this report
      • Step 2: Use a pen to circle the score you wish to use in each student's case (e.g. the highest score)
      • Step 3: Switch to the "Post Grades" module
      • Step 4: Select the "Final Exam" grading task and then manually enter the scores you circled from the report for each student
    • Test Name: Mark this option to produce the report in this format





  9. Click the "Generate Report" button to view the report in PDF format, and/or print the report


    **Hint: For some students the word "Missing" may appear on the report for a given test (illustrated below). This situation does NOT represent one where the student has not yet taken the test and therefore should, will, or must.





    "Missing" in the case of this report, simply indicates to you that the student has not yet taken the test, but may never take the test - because they simply might not have to.

    "Missing" on this report is very normal to see, as not every student must take every test that is associated to your course!
