Achieve 3000 DATA

You can review your students’ test scores using the report at any time:

  1. Log into your Achieve3000 Teacher’s Edition.
  2. Click Admin at the top of the screen.
  3. Click the + sign to expand Performance Reports.
  4. Click How has Lexile performance changed over time?
  5. Use the drop-down boxes provided to customize your report, if desired.
  6. Click View Report.
  7. A list of users appears, grouped by class, grade, and/or school. If your results are summarized, click the + sign to expand your results.
  8. Scan the test scores. Look for test results that are consistent with what you know about your students’ reading abilities. The report includes Lexiles below 0L, which have a BR designation before the number, to help you see any incremental progress that your most struggling students are making. BR numbers will appear in the Teacher’s Edition reports, but not in any student or parent reports.

How Do I Prepare My Students For LevelSet?

1. Reserve a 40-minute uninterrupted class period to administer the test. Make sure that you have the laptops to test each student.

2. Show students the LevelSet tutorial so that they know what to expect on the test and how their scores will be used.

3. Have an assignment prepared for students who finish the test early.

4. Walk around the room to ensure that students are taking their time with the test questions. The test will deliver the most accurate results when students take their time with the questions and give their best effort on the test.

5. Review results as students complete the test by logging into your Teacher's Edition. (see Achieve 3000 Data)

6. Discuss LevelSet results individually with your students.

Level Set

  2. Click Admin at the top of the screen.
  3. Click the + sign to expand Assessment Tools and select Which of my students have not taken LevelSet?
  4. Select a school and/or class, if prompted.
  5. A list of users appears, grouped by grade and/or school.
  6. To remove a student from your school or class, check the name of the student and click Remove from Class or Remove from School at the bottom of the screen.
