About Reporting Parameter Groups

When you customise certain Accelerated Reader reports, you can select or create a reporting parameter group to use on the report.

Reporting parameter groups are customised student groups that allow you to focus your reports on students who meet specific criteria. A reporting parameter group can include students enrolled in the school prior to a certain date and/or with a specific ethnicity, gender, language, characteristic and/or year.

Choose to include students who were first enrolled in the selected school prior to a date that you specify.

Specify each student's ethnicity when you add the student to the program or edit the student's information. When you create a reporting parameter group, you can select specific ethnicities and/or Not Specified.

If this option is not available it is because the Filter Reports by Ethnicity capability has been removed. See your school administrator or school network administrator if you feel you should have this capability.

Like ethnicity, a student's gender is specified when you add the student or edit the student's information. When you create a reporting parameter group, you can include female students, male students, and/or students whose gender is not specified.

Like ethnicity and gender, a student's primary language can be specified when you add the student or edit the student's information. When you create a reporting parameter group, you can include students who speak certain languages and/or ones whose primary language is not specified.

If you want to specify characteristics when you create a reporting parameter group, you must first assign the appropriate characteristics to your students by editing each student's characteristics. Some characteristics are standard for all schools; others may have been added by an administrator or staff member. When you create a reporting parameter group, you can specify which characteristics you want included. You can also choose to include students with any of the selected characteristics or students who have all of the selected characteristics.

If this option is not available it is because the Filter Reports by Characteristics capability has been removed. See your school administrator or school network administrator if you feel you should have this capability.

Like ethnicity, gender and language, each student's year can be specified when you add the student or edit the student's information. When you create a reporting parameter group, you can include students in specific years and/or students who have no year assigned.

Reporting parameter groups do not need to be limited to one category. You can select options among all of the categories to create a very specific reporting group. For example, you could set up a group that includes students who are Asian, female, who are Gifted and Talented and in years 1, 2 or 3.
