Comparing outcomes to Personalised Targets on the Student Analysis Overview

By default, the Student Analysis Overview page allows you to compare the grades for any Gradepoint against the MEGs at a cohort level. The colours of the subject lozenges for each student give a visual guide as to whether students are above, on or below MEG for each data drop.

This means that you can look horizontally across your Year Groups and identify subjects where students are making good progress with regards to their MEGs, and where they are attaining grades below the MEG.

We have added a toggle button into the Student Analysis Overview section which will allow you to switch the view so that the subject lozenges then compare the Gradepoint to the Personalised Target (PT) instead of the MEG.

Read on or watch our video below: 

The first screenshot shows the toggle switched to the MEG. The lozenges continue to show the colours against the MEG for subject progress. 

If the toggle is now switched to the PT, the colours of each lozenge will now be determined by the PT, showing where students are performing above, at or below this subject target.

Many schools and colleges use the PT to define subject specific target grades using the MEG as a starting point. This new feature will allow colleagues to look strategically across the Year Group to identify progress made towards these PTs.

Exporting to excel will mirror the toggle producing a spreadsheet showing the grades against either the MEG or the PT, depending on how the switch was applied on the page at the time of export.
