PATH: Campus Instruction > Progress Monitor
The Progress Monitor allows teachers in standards-based classrooms to view students' proficiency at a glance and easily manage assignments across all standards in a section. The option to individualize assignments means teachers can assign work to only students that need it and give them each the time they need.
The Progress Monitor only displays assignments aligned to standards. For classes graded based on Grading Tasks, use the Grade Book.
The Progress Monitor tracks student proficiency across standards aligned to a section.
Understanding the Progress Monitor
The Progress Monitor lists students along the left side and standards across the top.
- Students are sorted alphabetically by last name. Reverse sort order by clicking the triangle next to the Students column header.
- Standards are sorted based on the sequence entered in the Standards Bank.
Indicators within each grid square provide information about assignments aligned to that standard.
The In Progress rubric score displays at the center of the square. This value calculates based on the Grade Calc Options set for the standard.
|Top Right Number||The number of scored assignments aligned to the standard.|
|Indicates that the student has submitted a file for this assignment.|
|Indicates that an assignment aligned to the standard is flagged as Missing.|
|Indicates that there is an unscored assignment aligned to the standard. Unscored assignments have Due Dates in the past but not scores entered or flags selected.|
|Indicates the student does not have upcoming work assigned. Click the grid square to create an assignment or add one from the library. Or click the column header to review assignments aligned to the standard and one to the student.|
Use the buttons along the top to highlight only those items:
Use the Highlight buttons to see which standards have no assignments or have assignments that are unscored or missing, or have a submission.
In this example, only standards that have unscored assignments are highlighted, making it easy for teachers to see what assignments need their attention. Click on a grid square to enter scores.
The Filter button at the top of the Progress Monitor allows teachers to filter by standard(s) or by a student group.
Progress Monitor can be filtered by one or more standards and by student groups.
When a filter is applied, a blue dot displays in the Filter button. Click to open Filter Options and clear filters.
The Progress Monitor can also be filtered by individual students.
Filter by individual student.
Use the Previous and Next buttons to page through individual students.
Filter and highlight options can be combined. For example, select a student and click the Missing highlight to page through only students who have missing assignments.

|Show Rollup Relationships|
Rollup relationships calculate the grade of a parent standard based on the scores a student has received for child standards. This relationship is established at the Course level. In the Progress Monitor, Rollup relationships display with a grey tail in the column header, as show in the image to the right.
|Show Power Law Trend Value||Power law is a mathematical calculation that determines a student's proficiency on a standard based on the trend shown by the scores that student has earned. This preference only applies if In-Progress grades set to calculate Power Law in the Grade Calc Options and if the appropriate setup has been completed for the Rubric.|
