Summer Sparklers: Highlighting the New Features of the Interim Assessment Reporting System

The Interim Assessment Reporting System now offers flexibility for users creating student groups in the reporting system! As of this week, teachers can use the “Teacher-Created Groups” feature to create customized student groups by reassigning students from groups previously established for them by a local educational agency or school administrator. Other new features of the system include the following:

  • “Individual and Group Interim Assessment Block (IAB) Dashboard.” View and select IAB results for individual students or entire groups from a convenient dashboard.

  • “Claim and Target Aggregate Reports.” Generate reports by claim level and target level, and create longitudinal reports for Interim Comprehensive Assessments.

  • “English Language Acquisition Status Filter.” View results and generate reports by student English language acquisition status.

Please share this email with any educators in your local educational agency who would be interested in or benefit from this information. To join the email list, send a blank email message to Are you a new subscriber? Visit the CDE CAASPP Update web page to find previous issues.
