Reviewing your students' results from the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark test (IL&L Administrators)


This article does not apply to students taking the embedded Imagine Language & Literacy Benchmark or the NWEA™ MAP® Growth Assessment. It only applies to students taking the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark in Imagine Language & Literacy (IL&L). If you aren't sure which assessment your school is using, read Checking which assessment option your organization is using.

After students have completed the Imagine Galileo Benchmark, Administrators can view results across classes in all schools, classes in a single school, or a single class in your district. You can also choose to view class and student results from a teacher's perspective, by switching to the Teacher Dashboard view. If you are unsure whether if a student has completed the test, you can check student testing statuses in the Imagine Galileo Test Monitoring Report. Before reviewing the results, watch this video detailing the Imagine Galileo Benchmark Performance Levels Report.

To view student Galileo ELA Benchmark test results

  1. Log in to Imagine Galileo K-12 Assessment.
  2. Click Dashboard. 


  3. Click Teacher Dashboard > Admin.


  4. Select a school to view results or select [All Schools] to view results for every school in the district. The first school in the list is selected by default if one is not selected.

    Term/Field Description
    Graphical chart

    One of two comparison charts, depending on the school selected, that show performance level details of the selected Benchmark Test. The colors represent performance levels and the percentage of students that achieved them.

    Performance Level School Comparison - Chart that shows the performance details of every school in a district when [All Schools] is selected. 

    Performance Level Class Comparison - Chart that shows the performance details of a chosen school by every class in the school and by the district. This chart also displays when a school is not selected by showing details of the first school in the list. 


    If one school is in the district, the Performance Levels Class Comparison chart displays rather than the Performance Level School Comparison chart.

    Hover over a chart percentage to view the number of students that scored within that performance level.

    The default Performance Levels for districts and schools using Galileo to identify students for intervention are Enrich, Support, Monitor, and Intervene. If your district or school also uses Galileo for state test forecasting, labels that match the Performance Levels for your state test display.

    Summary of test results

    Averages are based on student results in a selected school or class for a chosen test.

    Student Count Students in the selected school or class who took the Galileo Benchmark Test.
    Avg % Correct The average percentage of correct points out of the total possible points of the scores from all students who took the test in the selected school or class.
    Avg DL The average Developmental Level score is from the scores of all the students who took the test in the selected school or class.
    Avg % Standards Mastered The average percentage of mastered standards based on the assessment of all students who took the test in the selected school or class.
  7. Click on a school name in the Performance Levels School Comparison view, to see the class comparison chart for that school. 


  8. Click the name of a class in the Performance Levels Class Comparison view, to see the summary data for the class.


  9. Click Class Comparison or School Comparison to return to the previous graph.
  10. Click View Full Benchmark Performance Levels Report to see additional data and choose multiple Benchmark Tests to compare progress from one test to another. The level that displays depends on the graph you viewed on Benchmark Performance Levels.
  11. Select a level to view test results. By default, the level previously opened in the Benchmark Performance Level displays.


    • Student - Displays details of test results per student.
    • Class - Displays details of test results at the class level.
    • School - Displays details of test results at the school level.
    • District - Displays details of test results at the organization level. 
  12. The Only students who took ALL tests option confirms that the same students are included in the groupings, to ensure accurate comparisons. This option is selected by default. To see group differences across tests, uncheck the box. 


  13. Filter more or fewer schools, classes and tests, for comparative test results data. The filters available depend on the level you have chosen. 

    • Student level - Filter by Class or Intervention Group. If you filter by Class, you can choose one or more schools, classes, and tests for a comparison view for comparison, or choose a single school, class and test to review. If you filter by Intervention Group, you can choose only one Library, one Intervention Group, and one test, or multiple tests for comparison. 


    • Class level - Choose one or more schools, classes, and tests to compare, or choose a single school, class, and test to view.


    • School level - The Student level and Class level descriptions start uppercase. Should you make the School level and District level descriptions start uppercase or vice versa. 


    • District Level - this level is available only to District Administrators. Choose one or more tests to compare all schools across your district.


    Regardless of the chosen level, the detailed test results data opens to a Chart view. The chart is 1 of 3 possible tabs of data you can choose, depending on the level at which you are viewing that data (Student, Class, School, or District).

    • Chart - The Chart tab is available when viewing the Student, Class, School, or District level. It displays additional information for combined test performance levels achieved by all students in the district, schools, classes, and tests levels. 
    • Data - The Data tab displays when viewing all levels such as Student, Class, School, or District. It shows all test properties and performance measures for each student who took the test. 
    • Standards - The Standards tab is available only when viewing the Student level. It shows data for the assessed standards mastered on the selected tests, the criteria students mastered in each category, and aggregate standards mastery data for the class, school, and district.
  14. Click the tab that represents the type of data you want to see.
    Chart Data Standards

    The Chart view shows the percentage of students in the class that scored in each Performance Level for one or more Benchmark Tests. The same information is located in the information Benchmark Performance Levels widget on your dashboard, in a chart that compares progress from one Benchmark Test to another.


  15. (Optional) Choose additional tests from the Tests filter list, to compare multiple Benchmark Test results, and then click anywhere outside of the filters area to refresh the data.


    An update of the class results for the selected Benchmark Tests display.

    In this example, we used the Chart view to compare the progress from the Beginning-of-Year to the Middle-of-Year Galileo Benchmark Tests.



Here are some quick solutions to problems you might encounter when administering the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark.

I don't see a Benchmark Test in the report

If students have taken the test, but you're not seeing a Benchmark Test report, contact your District Administrator to request the test analysis.


I noticed a missing score when comparing tests, or I noticed missing scores when comparing more than one test.

If a student's score is missing and you know the student has taken at least one of the compared tests, check the option to show only those students who took ALL of the tests chosen for comparison is enabled. If Only students who took ALL tests in the Filter area is selected, uncheck it, to compare scores for every student who took at least one of the selected tests.
