Authorized users are presented with a grade level selector, a search box, and three information tiles,

Figure 2. Comparing performance across grades 9 and 7 using four simple metrics.
Each of these metrics may be positive or negative - and are color coded green/orange respectively - so
that rapidly switching between grades reveals a picture of “better performing” grades (more green).
Each metric used is intended to create a set of talking points or data conversations that may take the
Who are the students that exited the top decile in this past year? What reasons would you
attribute to this fall in achievement? What, if any, remedial actions would this require?
There appears to have been an increase in the number of students who are leaving their current
grade above expectations in reading. As class/subject teacher, could you document strategies
that worked for this cohort so their next grade teacher can continue to expand their learning
