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.
This article has the following sections:
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.
➡️ Do you see a dropdown arrow next to each performance level? That means your district has enabled the ability to override the standards grade. For more information, check out this resource.
💡 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. This takes the performance mean for all attempts and converts it to a total class grade. See below for an example.
You can choose to filter the display in your standards gradebook in many ways.

- 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.
