Read the Class summary report for a Growth Diagnostic (Post)

The Class summary report for a Growth Diagnostic (Post) displays a whole class's proficiency level and growth in each of the writing skills assessed by the Growth Diagnostic (Post).

Each card on the Class summary report is associated with one writing skill.

The leftmost circle chart on each card in the Class summary report represents the percentage of students who were proficient in a writing skill based on their performance on the Baseline Diagnostic (Pre). The rightmost circle chart on each card in the Class summary report represents the percentage of students who were proficient in a writing skill assessed based on their performance on the Growth Diagnostic (Post).

The number in the bottom left corner of a card on the Class summary report indicates the number of students who were not proficient in a writing skill and need practice in the writing skill.

The percentage in the bottom right corner of a card on the Class summary report is calculated by subtracting the leftmost circle chart percentage from the rightmost circle chart percentage percentage and is the percentage of students who demonstrated growth in a writing skill when comparing their performance on the Growth Diagnostic (Post) to their performance on the Baseline Diagnostic (Pre).

Tip ๐Ÿ’ก

Students must complete a Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) before they can complete the corresponding Growth Diagnostic (Post). If all the students who completed the Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) have not yet completed the corresponding Growth Diagnostic (Post), you will notice that the percentage for the Post proficient circle chart for a card on the Class summary report will fluctuate. Once all the students who have completed the Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) complete the corresponding Growth Diagnostic (Post), the percentage will stabilize.
