School Administrators and District Administrators can run the Cumulative Performance report to pull student data from Imagine Español in a highly customizable format. 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.

The following data points are available in the Select Data drop-down menu.


The table contains the definition of the column if the report displays at the student level. For roll-up reports, the columns containing an asterisk(*) change to display an average instead of a total. Fields without an asterisk contain a total for all students in that group, school, teacher, etc.

Column Name Description/Additional Information
Unique Days Worked The total number of unique days the student logged into the program. This includes weekdays and weekends. For example, if a student logs in three times on January 12th, it counts as one unique day.
Activity Time in Min The student's total activity time on the program (in minutes).
Inactive Time in Min The total number of minutes the student logged in minus the time they spent on activities.
Avg Activity Time per Unique Day Worked* This is the average activity time (in minutes); it is calculated by taking the total activity time and dividing it by the number of unique days the student logged into IE.
Lessons Completed The total count of lessons completed.
Lessons Passed The total count of lessons passed. To pass a lesson, the student must earn a 70% or higher.
Lesson Pass Rate The total number of lessons passed divided by the total count of lessons completed.
Weeks in Program* The number of unique weeks the student logged in between Sunday through Saturday. At the student level of the report, this number is a total. At a roll-up level of this report, it is an average.

Filters section

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.) 
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. When you uncheck a selection, it shows in red once you exit the editing portion of the filter.
  4. To save filter settings, click the vertical ellipsis icon and select Set as My Default Filters.
  5. 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.

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, 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.)

How much time are my students spending on their lessons?
  1. 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.

  2. Use Select Rows/Columns to select Student Number and/or Student First Name and Student Last Name.

  3. Optional additional filter: Use the Grade Level in the search criteria to view a specific grade.
Are students mastering content (based on lesson pass rates)?
  1. Use Select Rows/Columns to select Student Number and/or Student First Name and Student Last Name.
  2. Open Select Data and select the Lessons Completed, Lessons Passed, and Lesson Pass Rate.
What grade levels are struggling?
  1. Use Select Rows/Columns to select Grade Level.
  2. Open Select Data and select the Lessons Completed, Lessons Passed, and Lesson Pass Rate.
  3. Compare the passing rate across grades.
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 filter (side panel filters)

  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).
    • Hover to the right of the column heading
    • Click the up/down arrows for how you want to see the data (ascending or descending)
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 Tuesday.
