Transfer Students

Teachers can choose to exclude or include transfer students in progress and placement reports. Transfer students are students who have either moved out of the class or into the class during the report period. If the student’s transfer date is not included in the report period, he or she is not considered a transfer student.

 

Objective Details Reports

Get deeper insight in a student’s performance by generating an objective details report.

  1. Go to Reports
  2. Select your class
  3. Check the box next to the student
    Objective Details Reports can only be generated for individual students.
  4. Choose your report options
    Generating a report for a date range longer than 14 days may cause long loading times.
  5. Click Generate

All objectives encountered during the time frame appear on the report, along with the most recent score, the number of attempts, the last attempt date, the average score, and an icon to indicate pass or fail. Objectives are grouped by Skill Areas and organized by strands. The learning branches match the color schemes in all other reports.

Area of Difficulty Reports

  1. Go to Reports
  2. Select your class
    If you want an individual area of difficulty report, select the check box next a student’s name.
  3. Click Area of Difficulty
  4. Select your report options
  5. Click Generate
  • Area of Difficulty reports contain data from the last 45 days.
  • Objectives only appear on the area of difficulty reports if the student scores below the mastery target score. The mastery varies for each objective and will be displayed in the Required Score field. Look under Last Score to view each student’s most recent score.
  • Last Attempt shows when the student last played an objective. Many skills are assessed in multiple objectives. Students will often have another chance to master objectives, after playing some additional instructional activities.
  • Waterford SmartStart reports are color coded by domain in order to match the SmartStart Activity Library. If your class or students are having difficulty with a particular domain, go to the matching section in the Activity Library for additional whole-class and center-based activities to supplement the online curriculum.

Individual progress reports

  1. Go to Reports.
  2. Select your class.
  3. Check the box next to a student.
    If you want individual reports for more than one student, select multiple boxes. Click the box in the table header to select all students.
  4. Click Progress Report.
  5. Select Individual Reports.
  6. Select your report options.
  7. Click Generate.

Individual progress reports show the student’s progress in the sequence, his or her current lesson, time spent in the program, and average progress. Data is marked in red if progress is lower than the class average or if performance is below mastery. For more information on where a student is struggling, generate an Area of Difficulty report.

Progress bars are color-coded based on when the progress occurred:

  • Yellow: Skipped because the student demonstrated mastery during placement test
  • Blue: Encountered before the date range
  • Purple: Encountered during the date range
  • Orange: No curriculum is available or the end of a curriculum strand has been reached
    For example, in Waterford Reading, the Phonological Awareness branch only contains lessons until early level 2. Once the student has completed the final lesson in the Phonological Awareness branch, the rest of the progress bar will be orange.

  2. Select your class.
  3. Click Progress Report.
  4. Select the appropriate options.
