The Writing Skills Report helps teachers understand how students are doing on writing in terms of mastery of writing anchor skills. To access the ELA Writing Skills Report, scroll down to the ELA section on the left navigation bar of your Teacher Dashboard. Click on "Articles Reports" and then click on "Writing Skills."
The report is broken into two sections. The top section shows teachers any ungraded writing assignments, as each assignment a student completes will be factored into his or her mastery of a writing skill.
The bottom section of the report shows teachers how students are performing on writing prompts by anchor standard. The report covers all 9 anchor skills within the Writing strand. Teachers can use the key to tell which anchor skills students are doing well on and with which skills students are having difficulty. A green box indicates performance at 80% accuracy or higher. A yellow box indicates performance between 65% and 79%. An orange box indicates performance between 50% and 64%. A pink box indicates performance below 50%. This information can be used to make decisions about which skills to focus on at the class level, small group level, or with individual students.
