What is Question-Level Reporting?
Question-Level reporting is an optional feature within SEL Student-Level reports that provides teachers and counselors to be more targeted with their student’s social-emotional learning (SEL) needs and interventions. Question-Level reporting will display student responses to each question except for free responses. This reporting feature will report student responses from any SEL topics that have been administered in your school or district. In this page you will find frequently asked question on:
How does Question-Level reporting appear on Student Profiles?
With Question-Level reporting, you can drill down to student responses and identify students who may need extra support. Question-Level reporting will appear on each student's profile (Figure 1.), under each SEL topic that has been administered. Once you expand by a topic by clicking on the arrow, you will see a list of all questions that were administered (Figure 2.). Underneath each question, you will then see the individual response from that student.
( Figure 2.)
How can I get Question-Level Reporting?
Question-Level reporting will be available to districts or schools that have administered SEL Student Surveys (Student Competencies or Teacher Perception of Students). This feature will be “default off” and not visible unless requested to be turned on by your Panorama project team. You and your project team can work on a timeline to turn on this feature that best aligns with your report rollout dates. Additionally, this feature can be toggled off at any time.
Can Question-Level Reporting include past SEL Survey data?
Yes, Question-level reporting can be turned on to display historic SEL Question-Level responses. Additionally, your can request to hide Question-level responses prior to a certain date. We can either apply this only to SEL data going forward, or to all your SEL survey data that we’ve collected over the years.
Do all roles have access to view Question-Level reporting?
Yes, all roles can have access to Question-Level reporting. However, we can also limit and/or remove access to this feature by role. We have four permission options available for each role in your district and school. You can reach out to your Panorama project team to manage the level of access to each role to be one of the following:
- No permissions
- View Student SEL responses only
- View Teacher Perception of Students (TPOS) responses only
- View both Student SEL and TPOS responses
Each role will be defaulted to “No permissions” until access is requested and authorized. Once requested, your Panorama project team can enable the permissions options above for each role. Additionally, you can reach out to our Technical support team for future user access and permission.
What should I consider when enabling Question-Level Reporting?
With Question-Level SEL reporting data, educators have the potential to be more empowered and provide targeted support to student’s SEL needs. With Question-Level reporting, students should know their survey responses are not confidential. This information is important to communicate especially if previously, it was communicated to students that no one would see how they answered each individual question. If you are interested in accessing this new feature, below are some considerations you can discuss with your Project team:
- Who in my district or schools may need to review or approve to have this feature turned on?
- What user roles should have access to this new feature and what level of access should each role have?
- Should Question-Level reporting be turned on for only future SEL survey data or all past SEL data?
- What are some ways we can start communicating Question-level reporting to educators in our district and school?
- How can we align Question-Level reporting with our current/future rollout plan?
Are benchmarks available for Question-Level Reporting?
Yes, Panorama offers benchmarks for most standard Panorama SEL topics, except for Cultural Awareness and Action and Diversity and Inclusion.
What are Question-Level Benchmarks on Student Profiles?
Question-Level Benchmarks allow you to better address and understand your individual student’s responses for you for student-level Social Emotional Learning (SEL) reports. You are able to dig deeper with student SEL data by viewing individual responses from students and understand where their responses fall within the greater national distribution of responses.
Question-Level benchmarks are compared against responses in the same grade level. Each student's response falls into one of three categories separated by percentile cutoffs: Lower, Middle, or Upper percentile (Figure 3.).
Are Question-Level Benchmarks available on a National and District Level?
Question-Level Benchmarks are available for both district and national comparisons for SEL questions in student profiles:
- National benchmarks include Panorama’s national dataset of individual students who responded to SEL questions.
- District benchmarks are made up of a dataset of responses from your specific district and must have at least 10 student responses for the benchmark to appear in your reports.
Are Question-Level Benchmarks available for all topics?
Question-Level Benchmarks are available for most standard Panorama SEL topics, except for Cultural Awareness and Action and Diversity and Inclusion. This feature is not available for Free Responses or any custom content.
Where will I see the Question-Level Benchmarks?
Benchmarks are only available if Question-Level Reporting has been turned on in your platform. Once Question-Level Reporting is available within your platform, you can find benchmarks next to each response within the student profile (Figure 4). You can click the drop down on the top right to switch between national and district comparisons for each SEL topic (Figure 5.).
How can I get Question-Level Benchmarks?
Question-Level Benchmarks is an optional feature and are turned off by default. If you’re interested in enabling the Question-Level Benchmarks feature for your district or school, you can reach out to your Panorama project team.
Do all roles have access to view Question-Level Benchmarks?
We can customize access to benchmarks by user role. Each role will be defaulted to “No permissions” until access is requested and authorized. Once requested, your Panorama project team can enable the permissions options above for each role. Additionally, you can reach out to our Technical support team for future user access and permission.
