Data Dashboards at a Glance
Dashboards at a Glance
The purpose of this article is to give leaders an overview of how to use the Data Dashboards to monitor students' assessment status, learn what each assessment status label means, and give tips for how to respond.
The Tracking Dashboard gives leaders a quick view of the percentage of assessment and dyslexia screeners completed during the testing window; as well as a view of practice usage during the previous week and percentage of students who practiced with fidelity. Leaders can then drill down into these metrics at the class, grade and school levels. Data refreshes weekly.
Assessments Completed: shows as a percentage of students who have completed the benchmark assessment (Oral Reading Fluency passage)
Screenings Completed: shows as a percentage of students who have completed the Dyslexia Screening tasks (as configured by the district)
Students Practicing This Week: Percentage of students with practice usage this week
Students Practicing Frequently: Percentage of students meeting targets for practice usage
The Growth Dashboard provides an overview of the fluency growth taking place in relationship to students’ use of Amira. Leaders can also see student growth from the previous assessment window to the current window. The growth view also provides information about the distribution of student ability and how that distribution is evolving.
Finally, this dashboard provides a look at the change in the number of student reading levels between the current screening window and the previous screening window. This chart can help the district leaders visualize where students are in terms of overall reading ability.

Each dashboard view allows the ability to maximize particular components as well as filtering to drill into school and class data. Watch this video to see how filtering can provide detailed data to drive instructional decisions.
Clicking Expand details within each dashboard will allow you to view more details and filter by school and class.
Page-level filters allow you to filter by school, grade and class to view high level data.
The Data Dashboards are currently undergoing beta testing. Once they are prepared for a full release, all Amira System Administrators will receive access. If you do not have a system administrator account, you can learn more about the Amira System Admin Role and request access here.
The Amira Admin Guide also outlines the differences between the Amira and Ed System Admin roles.
