Drop-down menus section

This portion of the report allows you to perform some basic data filtering to customize the set of students, groups (classrooms), or schools returned in the results.

  1. Use the drop-down menus to select the information you want to display in the report.
  2. As needed: Hover over the top right corner of a drop-down menu, then click the eraser to clear your selections. 


The drop-down menus are as follows:

Drop-down Menu  Description/Additional Information
School Select one or more schools to include in the report. If you are a School Administrator, the only option will be your own school. For District Administrators, the default is all schools.
Grade Level Select one or more grade levels to include in the report. The default setting is all applicable grade levels. Only the grade levels of students rostered in Imagine Language & Literacy in your school or district appear in the menu. If you are at a K-5 elementary school, for example, Grade 6 will not be an option for you to select. 
Assessment Type Select one or more assessment types to include in the report. Only the choices applicable to your school or district will display. The possible selections are Embedded (the default Imagine Language & Literacy Benchmark), RLA (the Reading Level Assessment), NWEA, Galileo, and None. None means that the student started an assessment but has not yet finished, or has not started it yet.
Custom Date Range The default start date is July 1st of the current school year; the default end date is yesterday. Click the calendar icons to make new selections. Today's data cannot be included in the report.
Select Row Values

This menu determines the columns that appear on the left side of the results table. It also determines how many rows appear in your report and in the Total # Rows box. Select the values in the order you want to include them in the report. To reorder the columns, change the order in which you click each box. (Alternately, you can reorder the columns after downloading the report.) 

 Tip

If you want to "roll up" your report to the group (classroom) level, deselect all student-level data points—Student Last Name, Student First Name, Student Number, Username, Student Alt ID, First Session Date, and Last Session Date—and select Group instead. District Administrators can also roll up to the school level by deselecting Group and all student-level data points.

Select Metrics

This menu determines the columns that appear on the right side of the results table. Select the columns you want to include in the order you want them to appear in the report. They will appear immediately after the columns you selected in the Select Row Values drop-down menu.

To create your own bookmark
Follow these steps after you have made your desired selections in the drop-down menus and/or filters. Up to 8 custom bookmarks can be created per role, per organization. (For example, the school administrators at the same school can create a total of 8 shared custom bookmarks.)

  1. Click Create Custom Bookmark at the top of the page.
  2. Type a name for the bookmark and click Confirm.

     Recommendation

    Since your bookmark will be viewable by other School Administrators at your school (if you are a School Administrator) or other District Administrators in your district (if you are a District Administrator), add your last name to the end of the bookmark so everyone knows who made it.

Filters

This portion of the report contains additional filters beyond what is available in the drop-down menus. It is for those who want to take a deeper dive into the data. 

 Note

  • Only the filter options applicable to the groups, teachers, and schools you've selected will appear. For example, if none of the students in your filters have completed more than an hour in the program, 60+ will not appear as an option to select in your Activity Time per Week filter. However, if you edit the filters and select different schools, 60+ will appear in the Activity Time per Week filter if the students in the new schools you selected have reached this usage milestone.
  • The filters are cumulative, meaning that they work together (i.e., if you select multiple filters, the results contain only the students who meet all the requirements of the all filters.) 
  1. Use the caret in the top right-hand side of the report to show the Filters.
  2. Expand the filter you'd like to use.
  3. The filter opens defaulted to Filter type = Basic filtering. In this view, check the box(es) of the items you want to include.

     Note

    The numbers to the right of the options are not impacted by report filter selections and therefore may not apply to the number of results you will see in the report.

  4. Optional: Change Filter type to Advanced Filtering if you need more granular filtering. Then choose an item in the Show items when the value drop-down menu.

    You can add another condition using And or Or. Click Apply filter when you've finished making your selections.
  5. To save filter settings, click Create Custom Bookmark in the top left corner of the page.
  6. To revert all filters back to their defaults, click Reset in the top right corner of the page.

FAQs

Click on a question below to learn more about common use cases for the Cumulative Performance report.

How do I know how many active students I have?

An active student is one who has finished the Placement test and has at least one minute of activity time in the program. Use the side filter called Active Students to find them.

How much time are my students spending on their lessons?
  1. Use Select Metrics to select Activity Time (min) and Avg Activity Time per Unique Day Worked as well as any other dimensions you would like to view.

  2. Use Select Row Values to select Student Number and/or Student First Name and Student Last Name.

  3. Optional: Use the Grade Level drop-down menu to view a specific grade.
Are students mastering content (based on lesson pass rates)?
  1. Use Select Row Values to select Student Number and/or Student First Name and Student Last Name.
  2. Open Select Metrics and select the Lessons Completed, Lessons Passed, and Lesson Pass Rate (for overall pass rates). If desired, you can also select fields for specific content areas: Language Lessons Completed, Language Lessons Passed, Language Lesson Pass Rate, Literacy Lessons Completed, Literacy Lessons Passed, Literacy Lesson Pass Rate, Grammar Lessons Completed, Grammar Lessons Passed, and Grammar Lessons Pass Rate
What grade levels are struggling?
  1. Select a Grade Level from the drop-down menu.
  2. Open Select Metrics and select the Lessons Completed, Lessons Passed, and Lesson Pass Rate.
  3. Compare the passing rate across grades.
How do I see growth between assessments/Benchmarks?
  1. Filter on the groups you want to see. If you are comparing the data, select a specific grade and assessment type using the drop-down menus at the top of the page.
  2. The difference between the beginning of year score and the most current score (middle or end of year) is the growth.

     Tip

    If you use the Cumulative Performance report to view growth, you need to perform the calculations yourself. However, the IL&L Benchmark Growth report and the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark report automatically calculate and display growth.

How do I determine who has met my school or district's contest criteria?
  1. Filter on the timeframe of the contest using the custom calendar in the Date Range drop-down menu.

  2. Filter on the students included in the contest (school, grade, etc.)
  3. Sort on the column(s) that match your contest criteria (For example: unique days worked, lessons completed, or lessons passed).
What is the lag time between when an action is taken and when it displays on the Cumulative Performance report?

The Cumulative Performance report data populates via an overnight sync. When a student completes a lesson, assessment, etc., the data is collected and compiled for reporting the next day. For example, when a student completes an assessment on Monday, the score displays in the Cumulative Performance report on Tuesday.
