## Definitions for metrics in Student Outcomes

 Courses % of students that are on-track in their courses (these students have no overdue projects/Math Units, Cognitive Skills or math concept averages below 70%, and no off-track Focus Areas). Overdue Projects % of students who have overdue projects in any of their courses. Like the Power Focus Area metric, this shows the number of total overdue projects across all courses, not the number of overdue projects in each course. Cog Skills % of students with an average Cognitive Skill percentage of 85% or above across all of their courses. It’s possible for a student to have an average that is below 70% in one or more courses even if their overall average across all courses is higher. Note: A Cognitive Skill average of over 70% indicates that a student is passing minimum requirements, while an average of over 85% indicates that they are on grade level. Math Units % of students with an average Math Unit score of 80% or above. Because students are typically only in one math course, this metric is often simply the students’ concept percentage in that math course. Note: A concept average of over 70% indicates that a student is passing minimum requirements, while an average of over 80% indicates that they are on grade level. Power Focus Areas On Track % of students who are on track in Power Focus Areas across all of their courses. The pace at which the students are passing is on-track toward completing all Focus Areas by the end of the year. This metric also shows the number of students who are off track by a certain number of focus areas.Examples: If Little Billy is on track in Math, English, and History, but 1 Focus Area behind in Science, he will be in the “1-2 Behind” group.  If Little Maggie is 1 Focus Area off-track in Math, 1 in English, 0 in History, and 2 in Science, then she has 4 Focus Areas off track total and will be counted in the “3-4 behind” group.

## Definitions for metrics in Implementation Progress

 Student Platform Activity Metrics    Note:  In the Student Platform Activity section, students will only appear in one of the four categories. The four percentages will total to 100% of your total number of students enrolled in academic courses on the platform. Active in the Last Instructional Day % of students who were active on the platform in the last instructional day (note: we determine the last instructional day as one instructional day before the data was updated. You can find the date of the last update at the top of each dashboard page). Examples:  A student who logged in yesterday A student who edited a Notebook yesterday A student who requested feedback yesterday Active Between 1 and 5 Instructional Days % of students who were active on the platform 1-5 instructional days ago. These students were not active in the last instructional day. Examples:  A student who logged in 3 instructional days ago A student who edited a Notebook 2 instructional days ago A student who requested feedback yesterday 4 instructional days ago Active Between 5 and 10 Instructional Days: % of students who were active on the platform 5 - 10 instructional days ago.  Examples: A student who logged in 7 instructional days ago A student who edited a Notebook 9 instructional days ago A student who requested feedback 6 instructional days ago Not Active in the Last 10 Instructional Days % of students who have not been active on the platform in the last 10 instructional days.  Examples:  A student who logged in 11 instructional days ago A student who edited a Notebook 25 instructional days ago A student who has never logged in on the platform before Project and Math Unit Based Learning Checkpoints submitted in last 2 weeks % of students who have requested feedback on a Checkpoint or math Cool-down in any of their courses in the last 10 instructional days. Checkpoint feedback given in last 2 weeks % of students who received red/yellow/green or incomplete feedback on any Checkpoint or math Cool-down in the last 10 instructional days. Comment feedback given in last 4 weeks % of students who received a Notebook comment that is tagged with a Cognitive Skill and also marked as "needs revision" in the last 4 weeks. (Math Units will show as N/A because they do not have Notebooks and therefore this metric does not apply.) Projects Submitted But Not Scored % of students who have submitted a project or Math Unit, but it has not yet been scored. Projects Currently Assigned % of students who currently have at least one project or Math Unit assigned to them in any of their courses. This metric is pulled from projects with any status (submitted/resubmitted/not submitted) that are not past their due date. Last Project Assigned The most recent date that any project or Math Unit was assigned to a student. Mentoring Set Goals in Last Week % of students who have set a goal in the last 5 instructional days. Checked-In In Last 2 Weeks % of students who have had a mentor check-in in the platform in the last 10 instructional days. Checked-In In Last 4 Weeks % of students who have had a mentor check-in in the platform in the last month. Average Check-In Length During Last 4 Weeks The average length of mentor check-ins from the last 20 instructional days. Self-Directed Learning Assessment Taken in the Last 2 Weeks % of students who have taken an assessment on a power, additional, or challenge Focus Area in any of their courses in the last 10 instructional days.

## Suggestions on how to use the School Data Dashboard

### Better understand student progress and teacher implementation

 Activity How to Identify trends in student outcomes From the School Data Dashboard, go to the Student Outcomes section Hover over the colored bars to see student trends in each tile Identify trends in implementation From the School Data Dashboard, go to the Implementation Practices section Find the implementation metric you’d like to see Click View Details from that metric’s tile Identify trends over time From the School Data Dashboard, scroll to the Student outcomes over time section Filter the chart using the drop-down on the right side to see specific metrics

### Prepare for grade-level team meetings

 Activity How to Compare student progress across different grade levels Click Grade Level in the top navigation bar See overall patterns in student outcomes and Summit implementation Click Grade Level in the top navigation bar Click View Details under one grade level Identify students who need more support and those who are ready to progress faster Click Grade Level in the top navigation bar Click View Details under one grade level Scroll to the bottom of the page and choose a  Metric View Click the different tabs to highlight lists of students Identify teachers who need more support or those who could be exemplars for others From the Pilot Data Dashboard, go to the Implementation Practices section Select the component that you are interested in and click View Details View the list by Grade Level or by Teacher Identify teachers, courses, or mentors whose students are struggling in achieving course outcomes Click the Teacher, Mentor, or Course tab in the top navigation bar

### To prepare for coaching meetings with a teacher

 Activity How to Assess student progress in a teacher’s course Click the Teacher tab in the top navigation bar Assess a teacher’s implementation of project-based learning and self-directed learning Click the Teacher tab in the top navigation bar Click View Details  under the teacher’s name Assess student progress in the teacher’s mentor group Click the Mentor tab in the top navigation bar Assess the teacher’s implementation of mentoring From the Pilot Data Dashboard, go to the Implementation Practices section Click View Details under Mentoring See detailed information about the teacher’s assigned projects/Math Units and Checkpoints This functionality is not currently supported in the SDD.   However, you can View As the teacher to obtain this information.
