  • The label that says the number of students that need practice indicates which students are not yet proficient in the skill group

  • Proficiency means the students got all of the skills in the skill group correct

  • Need practice means the students who got at least one skill incorrect in the skill group

Assigning a growth diagnostic

Measure growth by assigning a Starter Growth Diagnostic (Post) and then a preview and assign button

  • Measure your students' growth by assigning a growth diagnostic. The growth diagnostics work like a post-test and assess your students on the same skills as in the baseline diagnostics, but with different questions.

  • You can assign a growth diagnostic as soon as your students complete the corresponding baseline diagnostic. However, we recommend waiting until your students have completed some or all of their recommended practice. The more recommendations they've completed, the more growth you're likely to see on the growth diagnostic!

  • You can assign a growth diagnostic from the Assign Activities tab, clicking on "Assess student writing with a diagnostic", or through the sidebar on the left-hand side of the screen when viewing a specific Diagnostic Report.
