Educators, we are ushering in SY 19/20 with a new way to visualize your students’ data! We are pleased to announce this major revamp to reports on ScootPad with new insights to measure student progress and mastery aligned to the respective classroom grade level.
Tag your classrooms with a grade level!
You may know the grade level in your classroom, but ScootPad doesn’t. At least, that is, not until now! Start off the new school year by creating a brand new classroom. Then select your grade level. This new tag is very important and will allow data to be filtered in various reports from the teacher level to the admin level. Without this tag, data may not roll up easily for admins or be easily filtered out for teachers.
Need to reuse your classroom? No worries. You can simply update this grade level tag under general settings!
School Admins, you can get in on the tagging fun too 🙂
Measure Proficiency aligned to the classrooms’ grade level.
Teachers, review your proficiency reports (1 dashboard and 3 reports) which allow you to visualize student data aligned to the respective classroom grade level. In the example below, the classroom is tagged as 6th grade, hence the teacher is able to see overall proficiency aligned to the 6th grade.
Select the radio button for “any grade” to visualize all data including at, above, and below the classroom grade level showing overall proficiency including scaffolding.
School admins, you now have access to the same report and several others (By Teacher, By Classroom, and By Standards) which will shed light on how your classrooms are performing relative to their respective grade levels. In addition, in each report you can see if any classrooms are missing the grade level tag so you can set this tag.
District admins, here’s the view of the same report from your perspective. We encourage you to sign in to each school to update grade level tags as necessary. In addition, make sure to check out the other district-wide reports (By School, By Domain and By Standards) for other ways to visualize performance across classrooms relative to their respective grade levels.
Last, but certainly not least, go ahead and download your data as a teacher or admin and the new grade level field, “classroom grade”, is available. Filter away!
We hope you’ll enjoy these improvements and save more time every day! Please continue to send us your feedback – no matter how small or trivial – that is how you can help us improve ScootPad and make it more relevant and effective for you.
