Question
Why are some tests missing from the Student Progress report chart or graph?

Answer
There are a few reasons why tests might be missing from the Student Progress report. While this report is designed to show a student’s testing history, there are limitations to how many tests will appear in particular portions of the report.

 
Tests missing from the line graph

If tests are listed in the chart on the right, but are missing from the line graph, this is caused by the limitation of the number of terms in the line graph. The Student Progress report will show only 8 terms worth of data, including growth projection terms, summer terms, and other terms in which the student did not test.

In this example, only 4 tests appear on the line graph of the 7 available tests. The numbers added to the line graph illustrate the 8 terms. The most recent term is the growth projection term, spring 2016. The oldest term is summer 2014. However, since the student does not test in the summer, the line graph ends at the fall 2014 test.


Tests missing from the bar graph

The bar graph shows 6 data points, including the growth projection term. So this will be the 5 most recent tests, and the growth projection term.

Older tests missing from the chart

The chart on the right hand side of the report shows only the 15 most recent test events. This is due to size restrictions on the report.

Other tests missing from both the graphs and the charts

Other reasons why tests might be missing from the Student Progress Report include:

Test outside the test window
Generate the report again, choosing All Valid instead of Growth Only under Report Options > Test Events.
