[Feature Focus] 6 Reports to Drive Instruction in Calvert Learning

[Feature Focus] 6 Reports to Drive Instruction in Calvert Learning

What’s the secret to driving student success when working with digital platforms? Start with knowing what data-rich reports are available to you and how to use them to inform your instruction. Calvert Learning, Edmentum’s digital curriculum for students in grades K–5, provides six customizable reports that enable teachers or learning guides to access the right data, at the right level, served up at the right time.

The real-time progress-monitoring reports can be filtered by time and date, exported as easily manipulated CSV files, and then printed or shared as needed. With several reports to choose from, educators can successfully inform instructional next steps and provide students with feedback and the support they need to be successful. 

Get to know how each report can be used to support critical classroom questions.

How are students spending their time inside of Calvert Learning?

Let’s take a closer look at three available reports that can be used to answer this question with different levels of detail.

Attendance

The attendance report displays each student and the student’s timestamps for logging in and out of the platform. The system breakdown will display the student’s earliest activity and the latest activity, as well as the number of lessons completed that day. This report reveals a quick look at attendance, and it is your first glance at how students are spending time in the program. For example, if a student logs in at 8 AM and logs out at 4 PM but only completed one lesson within that eight-hour timeframe, a teacher or learning guide may be triggered to ask how effectively the student is using the instructional time.

Student Engagement

The student engagement report breaks down student activity into more detail, going a step further to include the number of hours spent in the platform, in addition to the time self-reported by a teacher or learning guide. Teachers might do this if they’re leading synchronous virtual instruction, whereas learning guides might also use this function to account for time spent working offline with their child. Combined, time in platform plus self-reported time creates a full picture of student learning.   

Detailed Activity

The detailed activity report shows all online activities with timestamps including, logging in, logging out, lunch breaks, etc., which can be filtered by date and course. For example, if you want to see the exact time students submitted an assignment or if they stopped working before completion, then those precise details are captured here to guide your conferencing with students.

How can work inside the program be used to support grading?

Scores Export

The scores report is essentially where teachers will head to first when the focus is on grades. Gradebook information can be found that will reveal raw scores on every assignment and the overall percentage in an entire course. There’s also a detailed view of all work submitted by students that was graded by the teacher. For example, if your district’s grading policy requires two grades per week to be entered in the gradebook, then this report would be a good reference point to find grades to record to meet that expectation.   

How can I take a closer look at progress and pacing to inform instruction?

Performance and Progress Summary

The performance and progress summary report can be thought of as an extension of the scores export, but it takes raw scores a step further to aggregate them into each graded category. This includes Mastery activities, Unit Quizzes, Quick Checks, and projects in alignment with the PLUS framework used by Calvert Learning. Use this more-friendly look at scores to create your progress report grades and filter information by any set of dates desired.

Combined with scores, you’ll also find pacing information. Calvert Learning has a pacing calendar that outlines where students should be to complete a course on time, and this report shows exactly where they are within that calendar. Students’ current pacing days, their total pacing days, and their pacing progress are also viewable. For example, if students should be 25 percent done with a course, but they’re tracking at 10 percent completion, or conversely 50 percent completion, you are now empowered with detail to guide intervention and enrichment support.

Target Percent Complete

Once a teacher gets a first look at pacing information, the target percent complete report makes for a good next step to view the performance and progress summary data in more detail and start forming your game plan for helping each learner achieve success. As the only report that’s available just for educators, it provides a snapshot of each student’s current percent complete and target percent complete for all courses the student is enrolled in, including a pacing status label.  

Whereas the performance and progress summary will show students’ current and total percentage by days, this report will show a cumulative total. It also reveals a breakdown of incomplete lesson parts so that you’re not left guessing where to direct your students to start working next.  

While all these reports serve different purposes, together you can achieve a comprehensive look at student achievement. Calvert Learning promotes a digital curriculum for virtual and blended environments that is backed by teachers, who are the guiding force behind their students’ success.
