Student Standards Progress

The Standards Progress page shows the student's standards grades for each standard that was assessed by reporting term. The column that corresponds to the selected reporting term is highlighted. Compare the grades the student received in each term to assess their progress.

  1. On the main navigation menu, choose Students
  2. Locate the specific student and then select Standards Progress.
  3. Click a cell to display the standards summary information and the Score Inspector. Grades appear highlighted when they are changed.
  4. The Professional Judgment Indicator alerts you that student's calculated grade might not align with their proficiency in the standard.
  5. Click Save.
  6. To view the assignments used to assess the standard, click the icon in the Assignments column. Use the graph to analyze how the student performed on the standard. Learn more about the Standards Progress graph.
  7. To view the student's performance on additional standards, open the Quick Menu, and select a standard.

Student Standards Progress Graph

The standards progress graph displays student performance on the standard.

For example, if the standard was assessed on five assignments, you can see the five standards scores the student received. If the calculation method is set to the three most recent scores, you can see those scores in green on the graph and a dotted line that represents the calculated score.

A sample student standards progress graph

If you have selected a higher-level standard, that standard and up to three of the directly associated lower-level standards appear. If you chose a lower-level standard, only that standard appears by default.
In the Standard Grade area, you can opt to show or hide a summary of the standards metrics:

  • Most Recent X – The weighted average of the most recent standard scores where X is the number of scores defined in the Standard Grade Calculations (under Settings)
  • Mean – The average of the standard scores
  • Median – The middle of the standard scores (half of the scores are above this number and half are below)
  • Mode – The most common standard score achieved. In the event of multiple modes, PowerTeacher Pro selects the highest value.
  • Wt. Mean – The average of the standard scores based weighted by assignment total value (points possible x weight).
  • Highest – The highest standard score

These statistical values indicate how successfully the student mastered a specific standard. If any of the values are low, it may indicate that the student needs additional practice on the skill or concept, or you may need to revise the assignment.
In the summary area, select Show More to view further details of the assignment or standard.
