Once students have taken a Snapshot assessment, Edmodo provides you with instantaneous group and individual feedback. There are three reports within the Snapshot feature that I would like to make you aware of. To access the data, click on the Reports tab in the top right corner of your screen.

Understanding Each Report:
To help you understand how each report works, I would like to use the analogy of an airplane ride.
Report # 1: Focus Report (aka 30,000 foot view)
When I think of the Focus Report, I like to think of it as the 30,000 foot view of your classroom. This report compiles an overview of how many students meet the ELA or Math standards and what percentage of the standards have been addressed.
One of my favorite parts of this report is the Opportunities section, which provides a snapshot of the standards that need the most attention. The data is compiled into what looks like a complex venn diagram; however, it is much easier to use. By placing your cursor over top of each shaded circle, you will see what students meet and do not meet standards.
The size of each circle communicates how much improvement is needed. The bigger the circle, the more attention is needed. Overlapping circles communicate that there are students that do not meet multiple standards. This tool is a great way to make informed decisions for the entire group based upon immediate needs.
Report # 2: Student Report (aka the runway)
When I think of the Student Report, I like to think of it as the ground view of each student in your classroom. The purpose of this report is to meet the individual needs of students within your classroom. This tool is a great way to make informed decisions based on actual student needs.
To unveil student data, there are are three hidden gems that you will want to be aware of:
1. You can filter by last name or by proficiency.
Report # 3: Standards Report (aka 10,000 foot view)
When I think of the Standards Report, I like to think of it as the 10,000 foot view. You can view how students have performed on all of the standards by looking at each standard's color-coded doughnut chart (based on performance). If you want to see how each individual student performed on a particular standard, just hover your mouse over top of the standard (or substandard) and you will see a list of students categorized by performance.
This is a game changer and it feels awkward saying this, but there is very little effort on your part. Once students take the assessments, you have a library of valuable data to meet the needs of individual students and the class as a whole. Why aren't you using it?
