Many schools use the New Group Reading Test screening test for reading analysis of learners. You have the ability to import this data directly from the CSV that you receive from GL assessment. This will automatically generate the reports and make them available to teachers in the Gradebook.
Note: to import new group reading test data you must be part of the correct security roles in SchoolWise. NGRT must also be enabled in the screening test section.
How to import NGRT (New Group Reading Test) data
1. Go to Learner Support and click on Manage. Under the Screening and Analysis section click on the Manage button.
The Screening and Analysis screen will be displayed. Then click on the Import button under the NGRT section to start the import process. If you do not see NGRT in the list, check to make sure it is enabled in the screening test section.
2. Select the CSV file you downloaded or received from GL assessment with the NGRT data.
3. Once the data is loaded you will see the matching screen. If any learners in the CSV file failed to match with those learners on SchoolWise, these learners will be highlighted in red.
You simply click on the learner to match them. You can search for part of their first or last name in the box. When the list of learners are displayed, click on the learner to match them and finally the Assign button to complete the process. When you are done matching learners, click the Next button.
Note: if there are learners no longer enrolled in the school simply leave them in red. You can ignore these learners in the next step.
You can click on the Load All Users button to display every learner in your school if you cannot locate them via the search.
4. The final screen is the Details screen where you can enter relevant data about the NGRT data you are importing.
Year: You must select what year the learners were in when the test was given.
Comments: You can enter a comment to help identify the test (optional)
Date of test: This is usually set automatically but can be selected if not.
Official Scores: This is enabled by default to indicate it was an official GL test
Ignore Error: This is disabled by default meaning all learners in the previous screen MUST be matched to a learner in SchoolWise. If however some learners no longer are attending your school, you can choose to enable this option and ignore those learners that could not be matched. The import process will automatically ignore data for those learners who do not match.
You can view the import once all steps are complete.
Where do Teachers see their NGRT Report?
Teachers will see the NGRT report in their Gradebook once you have both enabled the test and imported data. They will only see the data for learners they teach in their class. The report is located on their Reports menu in the Gradebook in the class section.
