Yellow Diamond on Progress Reports

Some of your Progress Report graphs feature yellow diamonds in each column. What do these mean?

Yellow diamonds represent a student’s static, unchangeable performance on the placement pretest relative to his or her performance on our full-length quizzes. This is to help you gauge whether your students are improving over time.

 

For instance, if a student completed the placement pretest at a 5th-grade level but consistently works at a 6th grade level on our full-length quizzes, the yellow diamond will appear below the top of the student’s bar on the Post-Test Grade Level Performance graph. The top of the bar will be at y=6, while the diamond will be at y=5. The difference represents the student’s progress.
