Who can do this with default capabilities?

The Customisable Progress Report compares student achievement in one or two products over time; it shows you scores for a year or school on each assessment and the change in those scores over time.

When you print the Customisable Progress 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 or year, or students who were enrolled in their school before the date you specify. You can choose the products to include, the subjects, the score categories, the reporting periods, the grouping 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.

To print the report, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home page, click Consolidated Reports under Dashboards and Reporting.
  2. Click Customisable Progress.
  3. If the report is not available, it is probably because you had only one reporting period the last time that data was consolidated. The report requires at least two reporting periods so it can compare results between the two.

    • 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.
    • 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.
  4. Tick the box next to each Renaissance Place product that you want to include in the report. (You can select up to two products.) The list includes products that are available for the school network or school.

    When you are ready to continue, click Next >.

  5. To go back, select < Back at any point in this procedure, or select one of the links in the grey bar on the left side of the page.

  6. Subjects are listed under the name of each included Renaissance Place product. For products that only address one subject, that subject is already ticked, and the tick mark cannot be removed. To select an additional subject from another product, tick the box next to each subject.

    When you are ready to continue, click Next >.

  7. Tick the box next to each score category that you want to include. For definitions of the scores, use these links:

    After choosing the score categories, click Next >.

  8. Reporting periods can be added or changed by school network administrators and school administrators.

    The report will show student progress from one reporting period to the other. You must select two reporting periods for each score category included in the report. To do this, tick the box next to each reporting period.

    When you are ready to continue, click Next >.

    • Use the Group By drop-down list to choose whether to group by school, year, teacher, or class, If you choose School (not grouped), the information will not be grouped.
      • If you chose a school on the Select Students page, then choosing School in this drop-down list will mean the students will not be grouped.
      • If you chose the school network on the Select Students page, then choosing School Network in this drop-down list will mean the students will not be grouped.
    • Next, use the Then List drop-down list to choose which items you want to list within each group.

    When you are ready to continue, click Next >.

  9. The next page will list the information you have chosen to include on the report.
    • Choose whether to include the mean or median scores by clicking one of the options below the reporting data.
    • Choose whether you want a list of all the options you have chosen earlier printed on the report. (This option is ticked by default.)

  10. When you are ready to continue, click View Report.
  11. The report will open within your browser window or in a separate window. The controls available for printing or saving the report depend on your PDF Reader.
