About the Charts

The more information you pack into a graph, the more difficult they can be to interpret. We've done our best to make the charts easy to read but sometimes a little more explanation is warranted.
Summary Scores Summary scores may be viewed on the chart by choosing any of the summary options above the graph. Available summaries are Overall, Oral Language, Literacy, and Comprehension.
The summary scores are displayed as a solid gradient in the chart. The top of the gradient represents the maximum score in the dataset and the bottom of the gradient represents the minimum score in the range. The average score is the solid line inside the area as shown in the image above. For example, if you had 23 students take the ACCESS score in the 2018/2019 school year and the highest overall score was 3.4 and the lowest score was 1.6 with an average of 2.9, then the top of the gradient at 2018/19 would be 3.4, bottom of the gradient would be 1.6 and the line would cross 2018/19 at 2.9.

The domains that make up the summary are shown as colored bars with dots at the top an bottom showing the maximum and minimum respectively and a dash representing the average value.
Domain Scores Domain scores may be viewed on the chart by choosing any of the domains from the options above the graph. Available domains are Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.
The individual domain scores are displayed as a solid gradient in the chart. The top of the gradient represents the maximum score in the dataset and the bottom of the gradient represents the minimum score in the range. The average score is the solid line inside the area as shown in the image above.
Viewing Details - The Handle If you want to see data in the chart you can use the handle
The handle is the circle below the chart - by default it is on the right. If you click the handle, a popup on the graph will show all of the data for the segment of data closest to the handle. You can drag the handle around the chart to move it.
Filters / Choosing Students You can narrow your data down to groups of students, and even individual students, using filters.
Two filters are included in the chart - grade filters and language filters. Simply click on the filter and choose one or more options, for example 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. This will narrow the list of students included in the chart to just 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. When you apply filters, the list of students on the page will only include those that match the filter. You can also choose individual students from the list by clicking the checkbox next to their name. The craph will then only show those students you have selected.
Single Student View If you choose only one student from the list, the view will be slightly different
Because you will not have ranges of data for each interval on single-student views, it makes little sense to show maximums, minimums, and averages. When viewing summary data, the summary will be a solid line with colored dots indicating the individual scores that make up the summary. If you choose a specific domain, you will simply see a lone drawn to represent the trend in the student's selected domain score.
