Blank Spaces on Grading Report

Hi!! I run the grading report multiple times per term and there are always several blanks on the report. Many of the students are very open about having just not done the work, while others are very adamant that the software is not "putting them in" those sections. For example, a couple students insist that they are rarely put into the word fluency section. Is this possible?

  • I just read that I am running the Grading Report too often. Regardless, what do I do with blanks?


    The Grading Report is designed to be run infrequently--about once a term. Shorter running times will result in blank spaces or N/A's because students may not have had any activity in those areas in the time period chosen. If a student has completed a Zone prior to the period selected, then there will not be a score. If a student chooses not to work in a Zone, again there will not be a score.

    In Next Generation, you can see if a student has completed a Zone by running the READ 180 Student Segment Status Report. Unless students have completed particular Zones, students will not be kept from entering a Zone. Each Zone has different requirements for completion. (2 of 2) Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community


    There is really nothing to do with the blanks. Just don't count those in the student's score unless the student is completely skipping that Zone. By that I mean if the student is avoiding the Zone, you need to have a talk with that student about that the first time it happens if the READ 180 Student Segment Status Report does not show that the Zone has been completed and the time span is longer that a week or so.
