Data Driven Instruction Made Easy
Use this this packet to help you find reports, understand how to use them, and ponder on questions that will allow you to dig deep into student
misconceptions and seamlessly, plan instructional next steps. OnTrack is designed to make Data Driven Instruction (DDI) easy. Teacher and leaders can spend
less time finding reports and more time planning how to refine instruction to meet student needs. HISD uses the “Goal Setting and Action Plan Snapshot
Assessments” template to engage in uniform data tracking and structured data conversations. This workflow will walk you through the process of doing surface
and deep analysis of your data.

You will need:

- OnTrack: www.houstonisd.org/ontrack
- Access to assessment questions: Read the test and question items to find distractors and misconceptions
- Goal Setting & Action Plan Template: fill out the template to complete an action plan
- Curriculum blueprints: Use blueprints to access interventions and resources
- Optional lead4ward documents (Review Quickstart Guides): see common learning mistakes by standard

Surface Analysis
Get the big picture by looking at the overview of your data through surface
analysis.Deep Analysis
See strengths and growths at a glance.
Go deeper. Look for patterns in your students’ performance to distinguish which items require whole group support vs.
Use the smaller
Standard Analysis
groups Report with
of student (sort % correct to rank standards)
common misconceptions.

Whole Group
Use the Item Analysis Report (sort % correct to rank items) Items with high failure rate require whole group intervention. Other items
with smaller groups of students with common misconceptions require small group intervention.

Small Group
DDI- Item Analysis
Purpose: Use this report to determine which test questions were difficult and note the key questions to review to
analyze causes and solutions (distractors, ambiguity, and further instruction). It helps deconstruct questions to
determine which subskills are being addressed, understand distractor rationales, and make informed decisions
about effective, corrective, and adaptive instruction.

Measured: Percent of student responses per answer choice (Choice 1-A/F, Choice 2-B/G, etc.)
Standards are labeled as (S) Supporting and (R) Readiness and Process has its own column

Location: Reports > DDI > Item Analysis

Tips: Click on the Blue % Correct bar in the % Correct column to view an Item Summary, that contains an
interactive pie chart and student grouped by their responses select Item Preview tab to view online student’s
view, correct answers, and item properties.

view response distribution details
Griddable Questions displays % correct* vs top incorrect answer choices
Rubric Questions display the % of students who scored a 1, 2, 3 or 4
Omitted are answers left blank

Guiding Questions:

1. Which standard(s) need the greatest attention? What have you noticed about instruction for that
particular standard? Select STOP Items sub-tab under Item Analysis Scrutinize These On
Performance): An item is a STOP item if the threshold was not met (Item Correct Threshold) or if
too many students choose the same wrong answer (Item Distractor Threshold) You may change the
Thresholds under My Preferences
2. What misunderstandings do the students’ errors reveal? What do you think students were doing wrong? (Refer
to the test question)
3. Look within standards: On questions that measured the same standard, were students better on some questions
than on others? (Tip: click on column title Student Expectation to sort by SE) If so, how do those questions differ
in difficulty? Why did students do better on one than on another?
4. Compare similar standards: Do the results on one standard influence the other?
5. What needs to be different next week to ensure scholars achieve mastery this specific standard?
6. Is the issue on the content or process standards, or both?
Student Response

Purpose: This report indicates incorrect answer choices made by individual students. It allows teachers to see
individual student misconceptions. Teachers can even see student griddable and rubric responses to see
performance in open ended type questions. This report allows a teacher to surface misconceptions made by
individual students and can help group students who made similar mistakes. It also allows teachers to prioritize re-
teaching standards.
Notes: Standard Category: R – Reporting; S – Supporting
PS – Process Standard (PS currently only apply to Math, Science and Social Studies)

Measured: Aggregate percent correct of all students’ responses and individual student selection per answer choice
(Griddable- actual student response, Rubric 0-4, = no response)

Location: Reports > DDI > Student Response

Tip: Hover over TEKS number to view in detail and click on Item # to preview question and correct answer

the students perform?
2. In regards to the type of standard (readiness, supporting, process), how did the students perform?
3. Are there similar trends in the students’ responses?
4. Are there questions that only the struggling students are getting wrong?
5. Are struggling students’ misunderstandings different than those of the rest of the students on these standards?
6. What are all the steps the students need to take to answer these questions correctly? Which of these steps need
to be made more explicit to the students?
7. What additional support or steps will the struggling students need when these standards are being reviewed?
8. Look at specific questions: Did students all choose the same wrong answer? Why or why not?
9. What misunderstandings do the students’ errors reveal? What do you think the students were doing wrong here?
10. How are the students performing with open ended questions (rubric, griddable)?
11. Is the issue on the content or process standards, or both?
12. What were all the steps students needed to be able to do in order to answer the question correctly?
13. Within those steps, where does it appear that student mastery broke down?
14. Which students have mastered the standards and may serve as peer tutors?
15. What will your plan of action entail?
Standard Analysis
Purpose: This report displays the reporting category, standards, standard type, number of items to achieve the mastery threshold,
total number of questions, the percent correct by standard by class, and the percent correct by standard by student.
Teachers can use this report to assess the class performance, individual student performance, and standard mastery. This
report provides a global view of student strengths as well as areas of growth. It provides the opportunity to identify trends
among the grade level as well as determine focus of 2 to 3 standards that need corrective reinstruction.
Measured: Percent correct by standard by individual student including class aggregates
Location: Reports > DDI> Standard Analysis
Tip: Select desired view: Mastery/Non-Mastery or By Performance Levels

% Correct by student Standard #

# of questions met per standard % mastery

Guiding Questions:
1. Based on the mastery threshold, which students achieved mastery? What are areas of celebration?
2. Based on the mastery threshold, which students need remediation to achieve mastery? Areas of growth?
3. Which standards were the most challenging for the students?
4. Which students have mastered the standards and may serve as peer-tutors?
5. Are there similar trends in the students’ responses?
6. How are individual students performing on readiness and process standards?
7. How can knowing this information help understand a student’s level of mastery of a standard?
8. What strengths and weaknesses can be seen for each individual student?
9. How does the mastery threshold help have discretion around which student achieved mastery?
Student Grouping by Standard

Purpose: This report provides student performance by class by standard. It places students in one of three
bands. Teachers use this report to group students by standard performance in an effort to provide
enrichment or remediation on identified areas of need.

Measured: Percent correct by standard with banding

Location: Reports > DDI> Student Grouping by Standard

Tip: To change the percent correct bands for each column, select Percentage of Questions Correct to edit
