How do I know which students have Specialized Support Profiles?

Students who are part of Specialized Support Groups have their own Specialized Support Profile in the platform. These profiles can be accessed by any specialist or educator who teachers these students. As a teacher, you can view the Specialized Support Profile of any student that is in at least one of your classes. (Learn more about how specialists set up their Specialized Support Groups here.)

To view which students have Specialized Support Profiles:

  1. Click any course
  2. Click on the Students tab
  3. In the Support Profile column, students with a checkmark next to their name have a Specialized Support Profile (include screenshot)

View Student MAP Data

Within each student’s Specialized Support Profile page is a MAP Results section.

This section displays the details of a student’s Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Growth Reading and Math assessments results, including historical data, so that you can easily analyze a student’s growth trends. The student’s last 4 math and reading MAP test results are displayed in the table.

If a student’s MAP results show “MAP data is not available”, this means that the student does not have MAP results to display. 

Further information on MAP testing can be found here. For more information about the MAP Data section and best practices, check out this resource in the Learning Space.

How do I know if an update has been made to a Specialized Support Profile?

Since the Specialized Support Profile is a space for teachers and specialists to collaborate and communicate with one another about the details on a student’s profile, it is important for teachers and specialists to be aware when an update has been made to a Specialized Support Profile.

All teachers and specialists who have access to the profile will receive a notification in their avatar in the bottom left corner of the platform when a message is posted in a Specialized Support Profile.

Specialists can also easily view when a Specialized Support Profile was last updated, through their list view on the Specialist’s Hub. In the “Last Activity” column of their list view, the time of the last update to the profile is displayed.
