Now Showing: All Constructed and Extended Response Scores in Questions Tab

CTLS has a great new enhancement that will make reviewing Constructed and Extended Response scores even easier!  When you are analyzing data using the Questions tab, you can still review Constructed Response (CR) and Extended Constructed Response (XCR) questions and see how students scored ranging from 0-5+.  Previously, when CR and XCR results were reviewed with the checkbox, teachers could only see X’s for student scores with no breakdown of individual scores higher than 5.  Now, when you click the checkbox to view individual student CR and XCR results, you can now see the exact number of points each student earned for the question!  This makes easy to see which students demonstrate proficiency and which students need additional support.

 

What Could You Find if Only You Searched?

Have you tried using the CTLS Assess Search Widget? It is one of the most powerful tools available, especially when reviewing student data to plan next instructional steps in PLCs! Click on any of your classes in the Search widget to view all assessment results in a subject area. You can view any assessment type (local school, district) from the View dropdown menu. Then, choose your subject from the dropdown menu. Finally, click the plus next to the assessment you want to review and see all student results in one place where it is easy to move between assessments!

You can also expand your class rosters and choose a student’s name to see individual data. Click the Performance tab, select Local School Test (or any test type) and then the Subject. This time, when you click the plus next to the assessment name, you’ll see a customized strengths and weaknesses report for each standard assessed for the selected student. Both of these resources can easily help you analyze student progress and also involve students and parents in the process!

 

Teacher & Staff Teams Can Improve the Workflow of Your PLC

In CTLS Assess, Teacher & Staff Teams are especially helpful for groups of teachers in a PLC that share a common subject, course, or grade within a school. Each teacher within the team can view their own class data as well as the data for the other teachers on their Teacher Team. Once the teams are created, teachers are able to access and analyze data across co-taught classrooms, grade level teams, and department teams.

Teacher & Staff teams must be created by school administrators within CTLS Assess in the Management Widget.  Click here to access directions on how to create Teacher and Staff Teams.

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.
