The Student Card is the one place to enter and view data for each student. Its primary purpose is to enable the creation of equitable classes but it is also useful throughout the school year as a student-centered data resource.
The Student Cell is a condensed version of the Student Card.
This is where you will enter the student's first and last name, goes by name (optional), ID number, and gender.
Academic and Life Skills
The Reading, Math, Writing scores (Academic) and the Behavior and Work Skills scores (Life Skills) are required for Compose to be run when creating class lists for next year.
The Reading score will determine the Student Cell color. This color is also a quick visual representation of the student's overall academic level.
The Reading score will appear in the left side of the Student Cell.
The Behavior score will appear on the right side.
If a 2 or 1 is selected for the Behavior score the Student Cell color will change to highlight this designation.
