Data forms

It is almost the end of the quarter here, which means I have to retest my student  and submit progress to principal.  Does anyone have a good data form (excel or otherwise)  they have created using the info in SAM to show growth (hopefully) in their classroom.

    The SRI Growth Report is the best report that I have seen to show growth.  It gives both the numbers and displays a graph if the Lexile growth and can list the students in order from the most growth to the least.  It's my favorite report to show administrators.


    Though it is not an aggregate form where the entire class is shown, some principals like having a report tht includes the Read for Life Report for each of the READ 180 students.  If the principal does not have access to SAM for some reason, having these reports in a binder helps the principal when conferring with students or parents.

    Hi, I would recommend the Student Yearly Progress Report that is offered through SAM. This report offers a great graph of all of the students scores on the SRI Inventory Test along with a shaded area that shows the grade level range. Another great report for showing student growth is the Growth Report. I realize these are not forms that have been created, but they are excellent tools to use to show student growth.


    The Student Yearly Progress Report works well for schools where all students in the school take the SRI.  The grade mean that is reported on the report is informative.  (The grade mean reported is based upon the scores of students in the particular school.) If only READ 180 students and students being considered for intervention take the SRI, then the grade mean reported on the Student Yearly Progress Report will be artificially low.  This confuses some parents of READ 180 students who think their students are performing above the level of half the class and begin to question why the student is in READ 180.
