Tools to Interpret and Track Data
Step Up to Writing assessments ask students to evaluate information graphics and authentic texts from multiple sources that provide varying points of views in order to understand author purpose and master the components of each writing type.
Assessment tasks mirror those students encounter on high-stakes tests
The Digital Data Tracker enables teachers to enter assessment data for all students. The tracker automatically calculates class averages in each category of writing and will provide statistics on the number of students who are Advanced/Proficient/Basic/Below Basic/No Credit. Individual student data can also be viewed and printed for progress reports and meetings with students and parents.
