Test Record Report

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network Administrators, School Network Staff, School Administrators, School Staff, Teachers

This report shows individual student results for every test taken during the time period you chose. This report is the easiest way to get a detailed look at a student's test history. For each test, the report includes the test date, class, teacher, National Curriculum Level-Reading (NCL-R), Normed Referenced Standardised Score (NRSS), Percentile Rank (PR) and Percentile Rank Range, Reading Age (RA), Scaled Score (SS) and Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) scores.

Depending on the setting of the Lexile® Measures preference, you may see the Lexile® measure and the Lexile® ZPD on the report as well.

The report will indicate if historical data is included.

Teachers typically will not see tests from previous classes and school years, but administrators can grant them the capability to do this. School network administrators and school administrators will see all tests for a student unless this capability has been taken away.

The report will indicate if any students took a test using extended time limits with a footnote explanation.
