When students complete assessments with questions linked to standards, the performance on those standards can be found in the Standards Gradebook

  • From the home screen, select Gradebook.
  • Choose a class from the dropdown menu.
  • Select Standards in the upper-right corner.


Display

Each column represents a single standard. See the image below for the details.

1 - Standard: Hover over the column title to view the entire standard.

2 - Performance Level: Determined based on the grading scale and mastery setting chosen. You can change the scale and/or mastery setting in the filters (see below for filter options).

3 - Number of Attempts: This is the number of times the student has been assessed on that standard. A single question on an assessment and/or a descriptor on a rubric counts as an attempt.

4 - Class Summary: A horizontal bar that shows the overall class performance by color. Hover over each color to see the performance level and number of students.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: If there is an additional column in-between the student's last name and the first standard, that means your district has Total Grade Conversion enabled. This takes the performance mean for all attempts and converts it to a total class grade (could be a letter grade, a performance level, or any other term your district has decided to use).

Optional Filters

Filter Standards

  • This will allow you to specify which standard(s) you'd like to view data for.
  • Select Clear Filter, then check the standard(s) you'd like to view data for.

Filter Assessments

  • This will allow you to specify which assessment(s) you'd like to view data for.
  • Select Clear Filter, then check the assessment(s) you'd like to view data for.


3 - Mastery Settings

  • This will allow you to choose the way the performance level is calculated. Note - the available mastery settings are determined by your District's settings.
  • Notice that the performance levels may change based on the new mastery setting. For example, a student that has a Most Recent performance level of Exceeds may have a Mode performance level of Approaching.
  • Important Note: Grade levels must be set for all classes in order for the correct mastery settings to be applied automatically. You can set them in your Class Info tab. 

4 - Grading Scales

  • This will allow you to view the standards measured with a specific grading scale. Grading scales are determined by your district settings and will only work properly when classes have a grade level assigned.

5 - Grading Period

  • This will allow you to view the standards measured within a specific grading period. Note - the grading periods are determined by your District's settings.

Individual Student/Standard Performance

Clicking within an individual student's performance will take you to a more detailed view of their performance level(s).

To See Standards in List View

Select an individual student's name:

  • This will take you to a list of the standards that student has been assessed on, as well as the performance level for each standard.
  • You can change the Mastery Setting by clicking on the ellipses in the upper-right corner.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: If there is an additional row above the table, that means your district has Total Grade Conversion enabled. This takes the performance mean for all attempts and converts it to a total class grade (could be a letter grade, a performance level, or any other term your district has decided to use).

To See Individual Standard Performance

  • This will take you to a more detailed view of the attempts made on that standard. 
  • In this example, this student attempted CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.3 15 times
  • Each attempt is listed, along with the name of the assessment it occurred on, the due date (or submission date if a due date wasn't set), and the performance level.
  • You can change the Mastery Setting by clicking into the dropdown menu in the upper-right corner.
  • Hovering over a point on the graph will show the details of that attempt, including the assessment name and due date.

Understanding the Grade Calculations

  • Mean - performance determined based on the average level they perform at.
  • Mode - performance determined based on the level they perform at the most.
  • Most Recent - performance determined based on the level they achieved most recently.
  • Highest - overall performance will be determined based on the highest level they've achieved.
  • Decaying Average - overall performance will be determined using a calculation that is based on an average with more weight given to the more recent scores.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: If you are unsure of how the performance level is being calculated, reach out to the Otus Support Team through the chat feature, and we'll be happy to help!
