Who can do this with default capabilities?

The Customisable Ranking Report shows how students in each group did on selected assessments in the reporting periods you selected. It also ranks scores from highest to lowest or lowest to highest.

When you print the Customisable Ranking Report, you must choose the students to include. You can also choose a reporting parameter group, which allows you to select students with a specific ethnicity, language, gender, characteristic, year or students who were enrolled in their schools before a date you specify. You must choose the products to include, the subjects, the score categories, the reporting periods, the column layout, the grouping and ranking options and whether to include the mean or the median. As you choose these options, you can go back and change your previous choices by clicking one of the links on the left side of the page.

  1. On the Home page, under Dashboards and Reporting, click Consolidated Reports.
  2. Click Customisable Ranking.
  3. If you want to narrow the group further, you can choose a reporting parameter group from the drop-down list or create a new group by clicking Create New or Edit Selected. Reporting parameter groups allow you to select students with a specific ethnicity, gender, language, characteristic or year or students who were enrolled in their schools before a specific date.

    The options that are available to you depend on the available data and your role in the program. You may be able to click a school name to see a list of teachers or a teacher name to see a list of the teacher's classes. Click Select next to the school network, school, teacher or class that you want to include in the report.
