Report Types & Details:
School Administrator Report
Penda Learning's School Administrator Report equips those users who have a school administrator account with a snapshot of school-level usage. The report summarizes student usage including active students, activities mastered by subject area and grade level, total task hours, and percent of usage outside of school hours. The report also highlights top performing students and a breakdown of usage for each teacher within math/science with an active Penda account. School administrators are encouraged to use this monthly report to recognize student/teacher efforts during morning announcements, school assemblies, or school newsletters. School administrators should monitor and encourage grade-level/teacher/subject area usage monthly and problem solve computer/Internet access issues that may be identified through low usage metrics.
Grade-Level Mastery Report
Penda's Grade-Level Mastery Report presents all teacher classes for a respective course and their corresponding average mastery scores for each standard listed on the report. This powerful report helps school administrators analyze and compare progress/performance in each teacher's class periods, especially in accountability grade levels. Especially useful, this monthly report helps employ interventions (in an isolated teacher class period, among one teacher's classes, multiple teacher classes, or school-wide) more proactively in preparation for high stakes assessment.
