Comparing Results

In CTLS Assess, teachers can use the Compare Tab to view data on two different assessments that share at least one common standard. You can see in the example below, the Unit 4 Pre- and Post-tests assessed two common standards. Your questions on the assessments do not have to be identical because the data is derived from the standards.

Once you click on the Dtl for a standard, you can view comparison data on each student. Data found under the Compare Tab is not only useful for instructional groups, but also RTI and parent-teacher conferences.

Administrator Student and Teacher Search

We recently published a post about an enhancement where administrators could perform data inquiries on specific students without going through the process of assuming teacher roles and finding the correct class. A new addition now makes it possible for administrators to perform data inquiry searches by teacher name or badge ID.  Click on the link below for directions.
