Amplify Reading administrator reports: Overview

Self-service Administrator Reports are now available for Amplify Reading K-5: Administrators can directly access these reports at: my.amplify.com/admin-reports.

Note: Access to Administrator Reports is limited to district and school administrators.

Within these reports, administrators can see activation and usage, growth and progress, and instruction overviews illustrating how students are performing within the adaptive program.

Districts and school administrators overseeing classrooms that are also active in Amplify ELA 6-8 and Amplify Science 6-8 will be able to see those reports all in the same application.

Click the following links to find out more about Amplify ELA Admin Reports or Amplify Science Admin Reports.

How to access administrator reports

In order to access Admin Reports, administrators must have access to Amplify Reading K-5 and the appropriate administrator, school administrator, or district administrator role associated with their district or school.

For districts that have also implemented mCLASS or mCLASS: Reading Edition, administrators also need full or system access to mCLASS Admin Enrollment.

If you believe your account meets the above criteria, but you are still seeing an error at the Admin Reports link, please get in touch with your Amplify contact or connect with Amplify Customer Support; an Enrollment & Licensing agent will be able to get you set up.


Features

Admin Reports are updated every 24 hours. You can log in at any time and see student activity up to the previous school day.

Snapshots

Upon login, you will land on the Snapshots page. This page provides a quick glance at the number of active versus total licensed students, grades, or schools. Active students, grades, or schools have used Amplify Reading since the beginning of the school year. Licensed students and schools or grades have been granted access to Amplify Reading.

Data on this page is aggregated based on the districts or schools you are associated with. For example, a district administrator would see totals for Amplify Reading across all schools in the district, and a school administrator would see a total for their specific school(s) or grade(s) within their school.

From the Snapshots page, you navigate to other areas of Admin Reports by clicking the Explore Reports button.

Usage

Administrators can see an overview of student activity through Usage reports, including:

  • Number of active students by week

  • Active students by school, or when viewing a school, active students by class

  • Number of active students by grade

  • Time spent by students in Amplify Reading K-5

  • Median time spent, in minutes, grouped by grade.

If you are a district administrator or a multi-school administrator, you can use the drop-down menu to filter Usage reports for a specific school. The reports on the page will reload each time a school or the district is selected.

Progress and Mastery

These reports provide visibility into key measures of growth and progress, along with views into the instructional focus of students at each grade level.

  • The percentage of students who have already met their subskill mastery goal for the year. This number will grow as your students do throughout the course of the school year. As the number of students included in this percentage grows throughout the school year, each individual student included in that percentage also continues to grow as they use Amplify Reading, surpass their goals, and encounter more subskills along their adaptive path.

  • The percentage of students who have not yet met their yearly usage target. These are students who have not yet met their subskill mastery goal, but are no cause for concern since they haven’t yet met their yearly usage target. Each student’s subskill mastery goal is personalized based on their placement point within the adaptive path and the yearly usage target. You will gradually see students move from this group to the group mentioned above as they continue to move through the program.

  • The percentage of students who are not meeting their subskill mastery goal despite meeting their yearly usage target. These students may still meet their subskill mastery goal by the end of the year, but it is taking them longer than expected. For some students this may be because they have struggled in their attempts to master certain subskills (known as trouble spots) and could benefit from targeted support by their teacher. For other students, they may just need a bit more time to complete their goals.

If you are a district or multi-school administrator, a table breaks these percentages down by school in order, so it is easier to identify schools that may require some additional assistance or investigation.

To show how usage time relates to subskill mastery goals more generally, we also provide reports for each grade level that demonstrate the percentage of students who have reached their subskill mastery goals, organized by hours spent in the program. You will notice that most students reach their subskill mastery goal as their usage time approaches the yearly usage target.

Note: The Subskill Mastery Goal is a zone, beginning at the lowest target for students in that grade band. Students should continue to use Amplify Reading after reaching their goals.

If you are a district administrator or a multi-school administrator, you can use the drop-down menu to filter Growth and Progress reports for a specific school. The reports on the page will reload each time a school or the district is selected.

Growth and Risk

Note: Amplify Reading is a supplemental reading program used within the context of core reading instruction and intervention. Students’ scores on the growth measures are impacted by the totality of instruction and intervention they receive.

NEW: In Growth and Risk, we have enabled direct linking to the respective Amplify Reading Teacher Dashboard for each class when viewing the reports at the school-level, indicated by the plum-colored links as shown:

Once clicked, you will be led to the direct Teacher Dashboard page for that specific class in the Teacher Dashboard.

Amplify Reading’s growth measure is used to monitor students’ performance and guide next steps for instruction both within and outside of Amplify Reading.

Growth is an indication of the key reading skills that students in a given grade level are learning, as well as tasks found to be predictive more broadly of overall reading skills for students in that particular grade level.

Reading growth for all students is assessed using a monthly activity called Curioso Skill Scan. Students in grades K-1 receive a word reading activity that assesses their decoding skills. For grades 2–5, reading growth is assessed using a monthly maze passage, as reading accurately with fluency and for meaning are the key skills students are developing in those grade levels. Each time students complete the growth measure, they receive a score in the form of an energy boost:

  • 0 stars: Invalid Score (student was flagged for rushing -- only applies to Grades 2-5)

  • 1 star: Below or Well Below Expectations

  • 2 stars: Meets Expectations

  • 3 stars: Above or Well Above Expectations

A student’s first attempt on the maze passage establishes baseline performance from which a typical growth trajectory is charted based on a national sample of students with similar baselines. Growth trajectories map students’ actual growth against typical growth.

In addition, administrators have an additional metric called Risk. This incorporates both the performance level and progress category to classify students as Minimal Risk, Some Risk, or At Risk for reading difficulty. This allows educators to assess their systems of support at both the school and grade level. The data patterns that map onto the Risk indicator are included in the table below:

Important distinction: These measures are not only measures of the skills learned within Amplify Reading, but also serve as overall indicators of the reading skills students are learning throughout their instructional day.

Instructional Focus

Instruction reports provide more transparency into how our program’s adaptive path is playing out for your students. They include:

  • Breakdowns of how much time students have spent in each of the various skill domains at each grade level, an easy way to understand how the adaptive program’s instructional focus shifts across grade levels

  • Breakdowns of where students spent time as their year usage time increased, an easy way to understand how the adaptive program’s instructional focus shifts over the course of the year within each grade level

Accessibility features allow you to hover and interact with the Instruction reports for more detailed information.

Note: Certain skill domains have been grouped into broader skill areas: Comprehension includes skills in Key Ideas and Details, Integration of Knowledge and Ideas, and Craft and Structure; Phonics includes skills in Early and Advanced Decoding, Letter-Sound Combinations, and Letter Combinations

If you are a district administrator or a multi-school administrator, you can use the drop-down menu to filter Usage reports for a specific school. The reports on the page will reload each time a school or the district is selected.

Data Export

Administrators can download student activity and growth data.

Click the “Export CSV” button to download a file that includes student activity data aggregated over the school year. The size of the file will continue to grow as the school year progresses and more data is accumulated.

NEW: Our new Growth & Risk report downloads will contain information about students’ baseline and current Curioso Skill Scan results, in addition to an interpretation of the amount of growth they have made between those two points and the level of risk for reading difficulty they currently face.

In addition, admins can download Assessment Performance History, which contains one row per student attempt at Curioso Skill Scan with information about each attempt.

For a detailed explanation of the columns and data included in the file, refer to the Export Guide for Reading PDF, also available in the Administrator Reports app.
