Learn about how to use the Science of Reading Dashboard to monitor students' assessment completion rates, practice usage, areas of relative growth and strength, and movement of proficiency levels across testing windows.

Access

You can access the Data Dashboard at www.amiratutor.com with an Amira Admin login. Request an Amira Admin account by completing this survey: bit.ly/Amira_Config

There are four tabs within the Dashboard: Tracking, Growth, Screening, and Science of Reading. Let's learn about each one.

Tracking

The Tracking Dashboard gives leaders a quick view of the percentage of assessment and dyslexia screeners completed during the testing window; as well as a view of practice usage during the previous week and the percentage of students who practiced with fidelity. Leaders can then drill down into these metrics at the class, grade, and school levels. Data refreshes weekly.

  • Active Users: Only students with 2 or more assessments or greater than 6 practice sessions will count as Active Users.

  • Assessments Completed: shows as a percentage of students who have completed the Benchmark assessment

  • Screenings Completed: shows as a percentage of students who have completed the Dyslexia Screening tasks (as configured by the district)

  • Students Practicing This Week: Percentage of students with practice usage this week

  • Students Practicing Frequently: Percentage of students reading at the minimum dosage (30 minutes/week)

Growth

The Growth Dashboard provides an overview of the fluency growth in relationship to students’ usage levels (No Use, Some Use, and Frequent Use). Leaders can also see student growth from the previous Benchmark Assessment window to the current window. The growth view also provides information about the distribution of student ability and how that distribution shifted across proficiency thresholds.

Finally, this dashboard provides a look at the change in the distribution of reading levels between the current testing window and the previous one. Use this chart to visualize where students are performing in terms of overall reading ability.

Screening Dashboard

The Screening Dashboard provides a visual overview of the percentage of students in each of the Dyslexia risk categories, as well as those who could benefit from intervention.

Science of Reading

The Science of Reading Dashboard provides valuable insights into the Science of Reading components of comprehension and word recognition. Each of these are shown broken down even further at the district and student levels. In addition, leaders can see percentages of students within the different fluency categories, as well as a quick view of total words read and minutes read.

Navigating and Filtering

Each dashboard view allows the ability to maximize particular components as well as filtering to drill into school and class data. Watch this video to see how filtering can provide detailed data to drive instructional decisions.

Clicking Expand details within each dashboard will allow you to view more details and filter by school and class.

Page-level filters allow you to filter by school, grade, and class to view high-level data.
