How Rochester City School District Educators Analyze Student Performance with Real-time Data


Educator Lisa Piccione from Rochester City School District was looking for a solution that would give her real-time insight into her students’ performance. She knew that having access to real-time data would enhance her students’ learning process by allowing her to quickly personalize her instruction.

An article by Brookings Institution states, “In the education sector, the availability of—and access to—real-time data benefits all stakeholders. Administrators can use the information on performance to adaptively manage resources and tailor programs according to the needs of students and teachers. Similarly, teachers can use student data to ensure that they are teaching at the right level and to customize their instruction based on individual learning patterns and needs.”

When Lisa found Classtime, it enabled her to ensure she was teaching at the right level and reaching every individual student’s needs. She was also amazed at the database of content available and the ability for her students to quickly log in to a session using the single sign-on options. In this article we discuss the Classtime features that enhanced Lisa’s teaching: 

Real-time item analysis and exports

Before Classtime, Lisa was using other platforms that did not allow her to view her students’ work in real-time. With Classtime, she loves that she’s able to do item analysis very quickly and easily: she’s able to identify immediately which questions her class is struggling with and which questions are too easy. Not only can she take a screenshot of her session dashboard to save this real-time data, but she especially loves the ability to export her session reports with a few clicks. While Lisa is conducting a Classtime session, she immediately sees how her students are performing through the session dashboard: 

Audio to support students with learning disabilities

Lisa uses Classtime for bellwork to see if her students are retaining what they are learning, but she also uses Classtime as an alternate teacher. The ability to add audio allows her to offer her students an additional way of interacting with the content and for her Spanish class and students with learning disabilities, this feature is extremely valuable. She says, “For some of my students with disabilities, I can record my voice reading to them, then they can listen to my voice and read the text at the same time.” She easily adds audio, images, and YouTube videos when creating her questions:
