How to Know Who Still Needs PMA

For a teacher, it's easy to know which students have completed PMA and which have not. Just look at the "Class Roster" tab.

What if you are an administrator? How can you tell what students throughout the school still needs to complete PMA?

When an administrator logs in, the default is the "School Info" screen. The lower-case letters indicate classes which still have at least one student not finished with PMA. The first number in the parentheses indicates how many students have not finished. But how could you get a list of names of who those students are?

Finding the Names

  1. As you are looking at the "School Info" screen, click on the blue "Enrolled students" button in the upper right-hand corner. 
  2. On the next screen, click the blue "Download as Excel" button. 
  3.  The results will be a list of students sorted by grade level. Within each grade level, students are organized by KCC.  
  4. The "PMA 1" column will give you what you are looking for.

Why This Blog is So Important

The idea from this post came as a result of a question I received earlier this morning. Dr. Laura Knighton at Pleasant Valley Elementary asked if there was a report that she could run rather than going class-by-class to find the students.

I figured if she would benefit from my answer, everyone else would as well.

Putting the answer here is the quickest way to get information to the largest number of teachers and administrators. It also puts the information in a place where it will always be available and searchable.

If you received this post in your email (because you put your email address in the sign-up on the blog), great! You never have to worry about missing anything.

What colleagues do you have who are missing out on these posts? Encourage them to go to the blog one time and put their name in the email signup.
