TGRG Data Reminders
Now that the S Retention Collection is open and Assessment collections have begun, ODE is starting to look at the TGRG data for the report card. Districts should be sure to report Retention Status, RIMP Intervention Program Codes, and Diagnostic Assessment Results accurately.
 
  • Students not meeting the required promotion score on the OAA 3rd Grade Reading standard assessment are expected to be reported with a Retention Status other than *.
  • For EMIS reporting, only report results from each student’s initial diagnostic assessment for the school year regardless of whether students participated in additional diagnostic assessments later in the school year.
  • If a district chose to use the KRA, only the fall KRA raw scores are used to identify students on-track/not on-track in reading. KRA scaled scores returned in the summer do not change students’ on-track/not on-track status. 
  • OAA results are not used to update on-track/not on-track status for Reading Diagnostic Result reporting, even if the OAA results led the district to put a student with an on-track diagnostic result on a Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan (RIMP).
  • Students scoring not on-track on the Reading Diagnostic Assessment are required to be on a written RIMP. Report the student’s RIMP Intervention Program Codes.
  • RIMP Intervention Program Codes are only reported for students on written RIMPs. This may include students who were on-track on the reading diagnostic, and were later – still in the first half of the school year – identified as having trouble reading.
 
Refer to EMIS Manual, Section 2.6 for reporting instructions. Refer to ODE website for TGRG policy guidance.
