Leadership Report Cards are snapshot program analysis reports that can be used by district and campus leaders to analyze aggregated local assessments at each grading period/cycle. These specially customized reports will populate with STAAR data and relevant local test data designed as a part of a comprehensive district/campus assessment program.
Users with District Data Viewer or Principal Roles are able to create Leadership Report Cards. To create a lead4ward Leadership Report Card, choose Reports in the Analyze tab in Aware.
Leadership Report Cards can be generated for any grade level/subject that is tested by STAAR and STAAR EOC.
For information from lead4ward about Leadership Report Cards, please visit their Resources page.
Managing Test Types
The single most important consideration for successful use of Leadership Report Cards in Aware is how to setup and maintain local test types to match a local testing program. Local test types are managed by a district-level administrator in the Aware Manage tab. The Leadership Report Card will populate with results based on test types (see instructions further down in this article), so it is very important that users at the district and campus levels who are creating assessments throughout the school year carefully and deliberately create those assessments as the correct test types.
Eduphoria allows districts to create as many local test types as they need. However, it is NOT recommended to have too many (they become more difficult to manage). Consider your local testing program. Do you have regular district-level assessments based on a shared scope and sequence? Do your teacher teams create campus-based formative common assessments? What about summative Semester exams? Do you administer a once-a-year full released state assessment at the district or campus level?
Because management of test types for Leadership Report Cards is so vital to their function, please consider consulting with Eduphoria support or with your lead4ward contact if you have any questions.
Creating your Leadership Report Cards
Choose the Grade Level/Subject
Click in the box.
Choose from the list of possible Leadership Report Card templates.
Your selection will dictate which state and local tests will be included in the report.
Select the Test Years
Your Leadership Report Card will include only STAAR data for Checkpoint 1. You get to choose how many prior tests to include. The report will aggregate the results from the tests chosen into one set of data for Checkpoint 1.
The default selection is the most recent state test administration for which we have Student Expectations. (Grades 5 and 8 retests, plus Summer and Fall EOCs do NOT include published Student Expectations and cannot be included in the report.)
Clicking in the box allows you to select a number of years back. For example, selecting “3 - Three Years Back” in the middle of the 2015-2016 school year will make the report pull STAAR data from the 2015, 2014, and 2013 administrations.
- The Leadership Report Cards do not pull data from Spanish language STAAR, nor from other versions of STAAR such as STAAR A.
- Grades 3-8 Math changed assessed curriculum in the 2014-2015 school year, so the report cannot include tests prior to 2015 STAAR.
- Algebra 1 changed assessed curriculum in the 2015-2016 school year, so the report cannot include tests prior to 2016 STAAR (it is programmed to be blank).
- Reading and Writing EOCs were combined into single English tests in 2014, so the report cannot include tests prior to 2014 STAAR.
- US History did not have a large number of testers prior to 2014 STAAR, so including prior years’ results is not recommended.
Choose the Local Test Types
Click in the box to get a list of the Test Types available in your district. Choose, one at a time, the test types you wish to include.
This example will pull every Campus Unit Assessment and every District Assessment from the current school year that matches the Grade Level/Subject chosen in step 1.
Please note: because every test that matches the test types for the subject/grade level will be included, it is important that test makers carefully manage the local assessment program. (See “Managing Test Types” section at the top of this article.)
District – Make no changes to this area and the report will create a Leadership Report Card of all district data for the multiple assessments selected (District Data Viewers Only).
Campus – Search for a campus title (start typing and select from the list) and the report will create a Leadership Report Card of campus data for the multiple assessments selected (District Data Viewers and Campus Principals).
The Leadership Report Card will generate a Leadership Report Card based on your selections. You can easily generate multiple reports by changing just the Grade Level/ Subject and printing.
The Leadership Report Card that generates will have a summary section in the first half of the page, followed by a blank Quintile section.
Users can manually complete the Quintile section by generating a separate Quintile Analysis Report using the same tests in Checkpoint 2 of the Leadership Report Card's Report Details section, located at the bottom of the page.
The "Avg % Correct" results of the Quintile Analysis Report can be used to complete the Leadership Report Card.
