Student data tracking is useful so teachers have the information needed to drive their plans for instruction. Similarly, it can drive student motivation when they track their own data. When tracking their data, students will take ownership of their learning. Academic growth will also be evident and easy to see! But how to accomplish all of this while staying organized? Introducing the Student Data Booklet! Available for both Math & Literacy (in the small group & intervention Math & Literacy Kits), students will be excited to fill them out! Let’s learn more about how to use these booklets below!
Student Data Tracking in Math
Included in the Small Group & Intervention Math Kit, the student data booklets can be printed off and used for students to visually track their growth. Check out the kit below:
Now, let’s dig into the student data booklet page by page!
1- Goal Setting
The Goal Setting page is a great way to start a discussion with each student on what their areas of math needs are, versus what they think they are. (Hopefully they match up!) The goal setting page is best completed with each student individually.
2- Math Skills
There are two pages of math skill boxes for students to color in as they master them. These sheets can also serve as reminders to students of the skills they already know!
3- Assessment Sheets
The next set of sheets are the little assessments teachers can administer to students as needed. The first set of mini assessments include:
- Number Recognition
- Number Word Recognition
- Counting to 100 (fill in a hundreds chart with missing numbers)
- Identifying 2D Shapes
- Partitioning Shapes
- Addition/Subtraction Fact fluency graphing sheets
- Telling Time to the Nearest Hour, Half Hour & 5 Minutes
- Measuring Length
- Solving Word Problems
- Creating Graphs
- Reading Graphs
- Place Value
- Skip Counting
- Odd & Even
- Identifying 3D Shapes
- Identifying & Counting Coins
By keeping these mini assessments in the booklet, it makes student data tracking a breeze! Once again, students can look back on their learning and review! Students will want to do well when they know all of their assessments will be kept in the booklet. They will (hopefully) want to review all of their successes and skills mastered!

Student Data Tracking in Literacy
Now that we have seen the Math Student Data Booklet, you will know what to expect from the literacy version. These Literacy student data trackers are part of the Small Group & Intervention Literacy Kit.
Let’s dig into the student data booklets!
1- Goal Setting
As with the Math data tracker, students should work with their teacher to set at least three individual literacy goals.
2- Book Log
The data booklet includes a sheet for kids to color a book clipart for each book they have read. Also, there is a sheet for students to practice writing book Titles.
3- Assessment Sheets
Also, like the Math data tracker, there are sheets that could be used as “mini” assessments to check student understanding. (This could be a quick check!) Students will definitely go back and look at their previous assessments! They will be proud of their work. They can also learn from mistakes.
- Reading Fluency Graph
- Reading Stamina Graph
- Sight Word Mastery
- Heart Words
- Upper & Lower Case Letter Naming
- Upper & Lower Case Letter Sounds
- Short Vowels
- Long Vowels
- Vowel Teams
- R-Controlled Vowels
- Fiction & Nonfiction Comprehension
The literacy kit student data booklet also includes writing checklists for Narrative, Opinion and Informational Writing. These checklists are meant to help kids create complete and detailed writing.
