Exploring the Diagnostic Tool: Spotlight on class data and spread of ability
When planning lessons and targeted support for students, it can be useful to have access to data that shows different class groupings.
On the homepage of the Diagnostic Tool you will find a Class distribution graph illustrating the overall level for each of your students –each gold bar represents a student that can be identified by hovering over the graph. This also represents the overall spread of ability you need to manage in your class.
The Class data report provides an overview of your class according to substrand, strand or overall level. It also acts as a gateway to exploring individual student data – you simply click on a student name to access their personal profile.
When planning lessons and targeted support for students, it can be useful to have access to data that shows different class groupings. There are 3 types of student groupings you can view: groupings according to substrand, strand, or overall level.

Simply click on the interactive tile to access the list of students and a recommended lesson plan for the group.
