Session B (12:30 – 3:15pm)
Home Base Refresher Reporting Features/Open Class/ Differentiated Work Time
In this Home Base Refresher session, district and school Schoolnet users will learn more about:

  • During this session participants will learn more about the Schoolnet Reporting features. Schoolnet provides extensive reporting and analysis tools for data:
    • Key performance indicators (KPIs) that give an at-a-glance, color-coded view of critical district, school or classroom data. Great for tracking towards your goals on a day to day basis.
    • Pre-formatted reports that help you quickly understand data from the most common formats, like skill-based reports or item analysis, perfect for monthly principal meetings or PLC discussions.
    • Customizable reports that let you "under the hood" to look at data from every possible angle to analyze complex issues
  • Overview of Open Class
  • Additional differentiated support will be provided as participants create assessments in their own Home Base accounts or continue to practice in the demo site and/or create on their live site. Participants may choose to create ClassScape tests in Schoolnet, district benchmark assessments, classroom-level formative or summative assessments, or focus on reporting features as needed. Facilitators will be available for individual needs.

Please bring:
  • Username and password for your district’s demo Schoolnet account
  • Your Home Base username and password
  • Wireless laptop and extension cord

Target Audience: District Schoolnet Trainers and other users

Differentiated Support

In this part of the session, I can:
  • Work collaboratively in Home Base with trainer support on a task of your choice.
  • Ask questions



Can teachers use existing assessments they have created in ClassScape – can those be imported into Home Base?
No, assessments that were created in ClassScape cannot be imported into Home Base. However, there is a process for downloading the information (test blueprint) from ClassScape that will allow you to rebuild the assessment in Home Base. Here is the process to get that information from ClassScape is: ClassScape users can go to Manage Custom Assessments/Benchmarks and select "Export Item List" to create a spreadsheet in CSV formatting with the item order, ClassScape item ID number, and objective. Test Administrators or teachers would then use the spreadsheet to find their same items in Home Base (Schoolnet) and rebuild their assessments.
