Once your students have completed at least one ELA assignment, you can track student progress and performance with a number of different reports. There are reports for Front Row ELA articles, for the Word Study program, and for ELA Benchmark Assessments. You can find these on the left navigation bar under ELA.
Front Row offers a number of reports to keep teachers informed about their students' progress and performance on ELA articles.
The ELA Student Activity Report gives teachers a complete list of all ELA articles assigned to students. The list includes the student name, whether the article was assigned by the teacher or student-selected, the name and type of assignment, the date it was created, and the overall accuracy on the assignment. It also includes a link to a more detailed report on the assignment. Teachers are able to filter this report by student and by assignment.
The Reading Skills Report shows teachers how students are performing on comprehension questions by anchor standard. The boxes on the report each correlate to a specific anchor skill for reading nonfiction text. The report covers all 9 anchor skills within the Reading: Informational Text strand. Teachers can use the key to tell which anchor skills students are doing well on and with which skills students are having difficulty. 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.
The Writing Skills 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. 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.
The ELA Groups Report creates groups of students by current reading level (based on progress and performance on Front Row articles) so that teachers can make informed decisions about how to group students in the classroom.
As with all Front Row ELA reports, Free Edition teachers can see data from the current week (including focused data from the current day and day before), whereas School Edition teachers have more options to go back in time.
Word Study Report
The Word Study Matrix Report shows teachers student progress on Front Row's Word Study program. Teachers can see which Word Study levels students have mastered and which level they are currently working on. This report also shows how the Word Study levels are broken down, both by skill and by grade level. This report can help teachers figure out what type of targeted Word Study work to provide to students.
The ELA Assessments Report gives teachers access to valuable information about student performance and progress on ELA Benchmark Assessments. It includes a list of all ELA assessments given and provides a link to a more detailed report on each assessment.
