Interpreting a Skyline

In a student’s proficiency chart, there are two important lines:

·      Skyline (white) – “Where is the student now?”

  • Initially set using benchmark scores, external data, or diagnostic results to show the highest standard in each domain a student has mastered
  • Moves upward as the student shows proficiency as they work
  • Travels with the student year-to-year, providing longitudinal data for learners

·      Destination (green) – “What is the student aiming for?” Also called hi-line

  • Also called hi-line
  • Student’s goal based on their grade level (i.e., what each student should master to show grade-level proficiency)

The overall goal is for the student’s skyline (white) to meet or surpass the destination (green).
