Where do I find the Proficient Reading Comprehension Item Analysis?

To find out what questions correspond to a particular type of comprehension, you will need to login to your account and go to the Reports section.

Once your students have completed a Proficient Reading assessment, go to the Reports tab and select “Group”. Then, click on the Proficient Reading test your students have taken. The window will open, extending beyond view on the bottom of the screen. Scroll down the page and you will see “item analysis” report, which is where each specific type of comprehension item measures a different category:

Literal Comprehension = information can be found directly in the text.

Inferential Comprehension = information that must be ‘inferred’ from more than one place in the text.

Evaluative Comprehension = information that must be pulled from more than one place in the text and then ‘filtered’ through a lens of ‘which is most correct, given the details and nuances in the text.

To find out what questions your students got correct or incorrect, scroll down to the bottom of the page to the “Students” section. There, to the right of each student name, you can click on “View Test” to access the test the student completed. You will be able to view the correct response for each question as well as the incorrect response the student chose.
