Check for equity gaps. This graph offers side-by-side comparisons to help you recognize gaps in experience between elated subgroups, such as boy/man vs. girl/woman. To close these gaps, review the learning condition guides for Ascend or Elevate.
Examine results by item. Use the “results by item” toggle to see how each individual item included in the learning condition changed over time. This information can give you a sense of what items are driving the overall changes you see. For example, if you notice that equity gaps are particularly strong for a given item, you might ask why students from different backgrounds may be answering that question differently.
How are responses to negatively worded questions displayed, where “agree” means students are having a negative experience? (e.g. “Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong.”)
What do we do with missing data (when students skip a survey)?
What does “structurally disadvantaged race” mean in the report tables and bar graphs?
