School Administrators and District Administrators can run the Cumulative Performance report to pull student data from Imagine Language & Literacy in a highly customizable format. You can choose a global (preset) filter or create your own.
This article explains how to access the report and then explains the three sections of the report: the Main Filters, the Results, and the additional Filters. The FAQs at the end of the article provide further guidance on using this report.
Throughout this article, you'll have the option to click a link to display further information about each section of the report. If you want to print this information, be sure to expand the section before you send the article to the printer.
To access the Cumulative Performance report:
Log in to Imagine Language & Literacy.
- Select Progress from the Dashboard drop-down menu.
- Select Cumulative Performance.
- The report displays with three sections:
- Click the arrows to expand/contract the report. The most common data to expand/contract include School, Grade Level, Group, and Teacher. Expanding and contracting the report allows you to roll data up to a summary level or drill down into more detail.
- Up to 250 results load at one time. If you wish to view all of your results, keep clicking Load More at the bottom of the page until the button becomes disabled, which means there are no further result to load. The filters inside the column headers only filter the data that is loaded on the page at the time you filter it.
- Use the arrow on the bottom right-hand side of the report to show or hide the Filters.
Main Filters section
This portion of the report allows you to perform some basic data filtering to customize the set of students returned in the results.
- Use the drop-down menus next to each section to select the information you want to display, then click Apply.
- Click Reset to revert the filters back to their defaults.
|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, sixth grade 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. (A student who has been rostered but has never logged in yet will not appear on the report at all.)|
This portion of the report is the data itself. You can select a preset Global View filter or create your own filter.
By default, student data generated beginning July 1st of the current year appears in the report. You can customize the date range in the date filter on the right-hand side of the page. Consult with your Customer Success Manager if you need data generated prior to July 1st.
To use a Global View filter:
- Click the Pivot Presets drop-down and select one of the Global Views.

This portion of the report contains additional filters beyond what is available in the Main Filters section. It is for those who want to take a deeper dive into the data.
- The filters on the right side of the screen filter the entire data set, not just the results that have been loaded on your page.
- 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 (Year-to-Date) 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.)
- Use the options on the far right side of the screen to apply filters to the report. To edit an individual filter, click the yellow Include all button or hover over the top right corner of a filter and click the pencil icon that appears.
Many filters also contain an arrow you can click to access the edit window.
- To turn a filter off, click the radio button in the slider. The slider will turn from yellow to gray. Turning the filter off is equivalent to setting it to Include All. Turning a filter off means that the filter will not impact the data.
- When you uncheck a selection, it shows in red in the filters once you exit the editing portion of the filter.
- To save filter settings, click the vertical ellipsis icon and select Set as My Default Filters.
- To revert filters back to their defaults, click the refresh symbol.

Click on a question below to learn more about common use cases for the Cumulative Performance report.
An active student is one who has finished the Placement test and has at least one minute of activity time in the program, and the number of Data Points equals the number of active students. Review the Data Points number at the bottom left of the table. If there are more than 250 students, select Load More until all students are loaded. (The button becomes disabled when all students are loaded.)
Use Select Data to select Activity Time in Min and Avg Activity Time per Unique Day Worked as well as any other dimensions you would like to view.

The difference between the beginning of year score and the most current score (middle or end of year) is the growth.
It is best to filter on one Benchmark/assessment at a time since the score ranges differ for each.
If you use the Cumulative Performance report to view growth, you need to perform the calculations yourself. The IL&L Benchmark Growth report and the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark reports automatically calculate and display growth.
Filter on the timeframe of the contest using the custom calendar in the Date Range filter (side panel filters)
- Filter on the students included in the contest (school, grade, etc.)
Sort on the column(s) that match your contest criteria (For example: unique days worked, lessons completed, or lessons passed).
- Hover to the right of the column heading
- Click the up/down arrows for how you want to see the data (ascending or descending)
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 Tuesday.
