We’re excited to announce that sharing FastBridge assessment data with family members just got easier with the release of the new FastBridge Family Report! This easy to navigate Family Report allows teachers the ability to have constructive conversations with family members about a students' performance in the classroom for both Reading and Math assessments. The Family Report is designed to provide family members the information they value most: How is my student currently doing? How does my student compare to their peers? How have my students’ scores changed over time?
FastBridge Family Report Highlights:
What assessments did my student take?
Teachers can set the stage with family members by reviewing the first section of the Family Report. This section is a brief introduction to the report and a list of any Reading or Math assessments the student took for that screening period.
How is the student doing?
This section provides family members a quick overview of how the student is performing relative to their grade level. FastBridge assigns students scores into three categories: On-Track, Some Risk and High Risk. On-Track combines Low Risk and College Pathway.
How does the student compare to other students?
This section provides family members an overview of how the student is performing relative to other students their same age. The percentile rank corresponds to the percentage of students who scored lower than the student on that given assessment and these scores are compared to students in their district (if available) as well as across the nation.
How has the students scores changed over time?
This section provides family members an overview of how the students are progressing over time in relation to other students their age across the nation. To make that easier to track, student’s assessment history will appear here (up to the last four years of assessment scores, if available.
Additional Information and Resources
Teachers can type notes for individual students that will help provide additional information about the student’s performance in the classroom to family members. It is important to remember that all the information contained in the Family Report should always be used as a starting point for conversations about individual student learning needs, and in conjunction with other sources of information about student performance with family members.
