Heat Maps with Student Learning Reports - Data Heat Maps are data visualizations that create color-coded “maps” of student performance at the student expectation (SE) level of the TEKS. The Data Heat Maps are designed to help campus leaders identify critical areas for teacher support and professional development. The functionality now includes the ability to compare local assessments as well as STAAR data.

Leadership Report Cards - Introduced in lead4ward’s staar4ward leading learning series, the Leadership Report Cards are versions of Heat Maps that can be used by district and campus leaders to analyze aggregated local assessments at each grading period/cycle.
