Table of Contents

The School Quintile Diagnostic Summary displays information for the selected assessment from the School Diagnostic reports. For PSSA, data for the selected subject is displayed for all grades in a single table. For Keystone, all content areas are displayed in the tables.

Educators can use this report to determine if growth patterns across achievement levels are consistent for all grades or Keystone content areas. Examining these patterns of growth can help educators identify strengths and areas for improvement involving curriculum, instructional practices, intervention and enrichment opportunities, resource allocation, and the availability of appropriate materials and professional development opportunities.

The data in this report can be a meaningful part of

  • Comprehensive planning
  • Annual School-level planning
  • Periodic School-wide grade-level planning

It is important to remember that this report is intended to be used for diagnostic purposes, and not for evaluative or accountability purposes.
