Learn how to use Reports for class, assignment, student, question and standards data analysis.

What is the Reports feature?

The Reports feature is Albert’s one-stop shop for a wide variety of data reports. You can generate reports for your classes based on different criteria, allowing you to analyze your data more flexibly and make instructional decisions. You can scope your Reports to a single Albert class or view student data for all of your classes in a single view.


How do I generate a Data Report?

1. To generate a new data report, click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

2. Choose the desired class you’d like to review data for. If you want to view data for all of your Albert classes, select All Classes.

3. Choose the type of report you’d like to generate for the selected class. You will later have the opportunity to distill the data from this initial report further.

4. To customize and scope the data generated in your report, add any relevant metrics or filters and include a date range, attempt number, or topics. You can also adjust the viewable metrics by clicking Metric Options.

5. Sort the populated data by any column by clicking on the relevant arrow.

[Pro-Tip:] To save your report, click Download Report. This will generate a CSV that can be viewed in Excel or Google Sheets. To share your report with a co-teacher or approved school admin, simply copy & paste the URL. Alternatively, any co-teacher added to your classroom can generate their own data reports.

How can I review assignment data?

Reviewing assignment-level data allows you to easily view how your students perform on a specific assignment. You can drill into assignment-level data to see how each student performed, including their score and class averages for questions and standards.

1. Click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

Choose the desired class for which you’d like to review data.

2. Choose the type of report: All Assignments

3. Adjust the filters and metrics to scope your data appropriately. You can also reassign, edit, share, or delete your assignment by selecting Actions in the far right column.

4. To further distill assignment data, mouse over the assignment name and click the drilldown arrow that appears. You will automatically be shown how each student in your class performed on the assignment. You can adjust the secondary view to see how your class performed at the question or standards level for that particular assignment by clicking the Students dropdown and changing it to Questions or Standards.

5. To see how a particular student performed by each question or standard, mouse over the student name and click the drilldown arrow that appears.

6. Continue clicking the drilldown arrows to access a more specific level of analysis!

7. To return to any previous view, click the corresponding report type within the drilldown flow shown underneath the primary navigation bar.

[Pro-Tip:] At any point, you can use the Search bar to refine your data further. For example, you could search by a specific state’s standards by typing “CA” or “California” into the search bar.

How can I review student data?

Reviewing student-level data lets you easily view how your students perform within your class or on a specific standard/question/topic. You can drill into student-level data to see how each student performed on specific assignments, as well as student averages by questions and standards. Like all of our Reports, student reports can be downloaded for use during IEP meetings or conferences.


1. Click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

2. Choose the desired class for which you’d like to review data.

3. Choose the type of report: All Students

4. At the top of the table, adjust any filters or metrics to scope your data appropriately. Consider using the Subject filter to view data for a specific subject, topic, or subtopic.

5. To further distill student data, mouse over a student name and click the drilldown arrow that appears. You will automatically be shown how that student performed on each question they've practiced. You can adjust the secondary view to see how that student performed at the assignment or standards level by clicking the dropdown.

6. Continue clicking drilldown arrows to access a more specific level of analysis!

How can I review data by standard?

Reviewing data by standards allows you to easily view how your students are performing on key standards within your curriculum. You can drill into standard-level data to see how class averages by standard, how each student performed on specific standards, and question averages sorted by standard. Select Find Questions to assign additional practice for any given standard.

1. Click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

2. Choose the desired class for which you’d like to review data.

3. Choose the type of report: All Standards

4. Adjust the filters and metrics at the top of the report to scope your data appropriately. Consider using the Subject filter to view standards for a specific subject, topic, or subtopic. You can also use the search bar to find specific standards or a state-specific set of standards.

5. To view how students performed on a particular standard, mouse over the standard name and click the drilldown arrow that appears.

6. You can adjust the secondary view to see averages by question or assignment. To do so, simply click the Students dropdown at the top and select either Assignments or Questions.

7. Continue clicking on drilldown arrows to access a more specific level of analysis!

How can I review data by question?

Reviewing data by question allows you to easily view how your students are performing on specific questions. You can use this information to create review assignments or identify patterns in any misconceptions. Drill into question-level data to see how individual students performed on each question. Click "View" to be taken directly to the question, or "Save" to add the question to a folder.

1. Click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

2. Choose the desired class for which you’d like to review data.

3. Choose the type of report: All Questions

4. Adjust the filters and metrics to scope your data appropriately. Consider using the Subject filter to view standards for a specific subject, topic, or subtopic.

5. To further distill question data, mouse over the question name and click the drilldown arrow that appears. You will automatically be shown how students performed on that particular question.

How do I generate a Gradebook report?

We're currently offering the “Gradebook” report for free as a special preview. Starting in the 2024-2025 school year, the "Gradebook" report will be part of the new Pro Upgrade. This upgrade will offer a suite of additional data reporting tools to provide even deeper insights to educators. More details coming soon!

  1. Click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

  2. Choose the desired class for which you’d like to generate a gradebook report.

  3. Choose the type of report: Gradebook

  4. Adjust the filters and metrics to appropriately scope your data. Only the grade metric shows by default, but you can add or remove any metrics from the table.

[Pro-Tip:] You can export the entire report to a CSV if you want to do custom data analysis. Just click “Download Report” and select the option for “CSV.”

How can I review cross-class data for all of my students?

Reviewing cross-class data allows you to easily view how your students are performing across all of your active Albert classes. You can spot trends in performance by assignment, student, standard, or question.

To see Reports for class-class data:

1. Click on the Reports tab from the primary navigation bar.

2. From the classes dropdown in the top left corner, choose the All Classes option at the top of the list.

3. Choose the type of report you’d like to generate (Assignments, Students, Standards, or Questions).

What's the difference between "Grade" and "Accuracy"?

In a few of our reports, teachers have a choice to view student performance either by Grade or Accuracy.

Metric

Definition

Purpose

Grade

The "Grade" metric counts any unanswered questions in an assignment as incorrect attempts.

"Grade" is typically the preferred metric that most teachers input into official gradebooks.

Accuracy

The "Accuracy" metric does not count unattempted questions as correct or incorrect.

"Accuracy" is typically the preferred metric that most teachers use for monitoring student progress as the assignment is being completed since it ignores unanswered questions.

To change relevant reports from displaying either Grade or Accuracy:

1. Click the gear next to the Grade or Accuracy column header.

2. Select the Calculation Method dropdown. Select the preferred metric: Grade or Accuracy.

NOTE: The Accuracy metric is most relevant for students during an active assignment. Some reports can only show the Grade metric based on the data's context.
