New Standards Grading Reports Added

I added a couple new reports to the Standards Reports area - both are free and return similar results, but in a different manner.  One report is called Standard Breakdown by District - Single Rows, and the other is called Standard Breakdown by District - Multiple Rows.  With both you enter a standard identifier and the report returns a breakdown of the grades given to it by each school that graded it.  So if you have five schools that graded the standard, all five schools appear on the report.  Unfortunately on my test server there were no standards that were used in multiple schools, so only one school appears in the screenshots.  The Single Rows version shows the grade breakdown in a single row per school, which makes it easy to view and compare things on the screen.  The Multiple Rows version shows the grade breakdown over multiple rows in case one wants to filter or export the data.  Both reports look at the grade scale tied to the standard and if no grades have been given for an item on the scale, the grades will still show on the output but with 0%.

I also added a premium version of the Custom Standards Reports to the site, and it's available to anyone with a full site subscription.  It takes the sqlReports a step further in that it contains four premium reports that are similar to the Standard Breakdown by District - Single Rows sqlReport.  One of the reports is similar but has a drop-down where one can pick a standard instead of having to type in the identifier, but the other three show data from multiple standards.  One will show a breakdown for all the standards graded for the current year, one allows you to pick a parent standard and see the breakdown of the graded standards with it, and the other one allows you to pick a course and see a breakdown of the graded standards tied to the course.  You can see a screenshot of the course one at the bottom of the Custom Standards Reports page.

The reports are based on an idea by Bob Cornacchioli of DERO Technical Services and if you attend one of his sessions at some of the upcoming PSUG conferences, you may see them in use, along with tips on how to use them effectively.

Thanks,
