Schoolzilla now supports standards-level analysis for Star data
04 Dec 2020
In order to provide you with deeper insights into how your district is performing, Schoolzilla now supports standards-level analysis using data from Star Assessments.
With Schoolzilla, district and school leaders can see:
- How students are performing today
- How their performance has changed over time
- How students will likely perform on state tests in the future
Now, with the addition of standards-level data, you can dig deeper to understand how your students are performing on particular standards. Having this granular-level viewpoint will help inform instructional and curricular adjustments that can be made across the district, in specific buildings, grade levels, or with groups of students.
These data allow you to look at mastery of specific standards by particular student groups to answer questions like “Are there differences in mastery of a particular standard for students of different races/ethnicities?” The data also allows you to identify instructional next steps to answer questions like “Which standards have low mastery and signal that they may need to be taught again or additional practice is needed?”
Districts can view standards-level data via Metric Zoom from any Star District Benchmark or State Benchmark metric. When choosing content, you will now have the option to select “Standard” in addition to “Strand” data in order to see the percent of students who scored “secure” on each standard:
Here are a few ways you can take advantage of this new feature in Schoolzilla:
Table showing a literacy standard, filtered by grade level, and comparing male and female students.
Table showing multiple standards, filtered by grade level.
This latest improvement to the Schoolzilla dashboards continues to enhance the picture of district and school performance that leaders need to see in order to understand and target areas of strength and identify opportunities for growth and further investment, helping to make data-driven decisions around curriculum and instruction.
