Overview of the Letter and Number Recognition Report
The Letter and Number Recognition Report enables teachers to record and track student's recognition of symbols, including the 26 upper and lowercase letters of the English Alphabet and the numbers 0-20. Teachers can choose to capture this recognition through authentic observations or through rote assessment and easily record through the modal feature of the report. This data can then be easily accessed to monitor student progress, target instruction, and guide planning.

Accessing the Letter and Number Recognition Report
You can access the Letter and Number Recognition Report from the Kaymbu or COR Advantage app on your device or from the website my.kaymbu.com by going to Menu > Reports > Letter and Number Recognition Report. After selecting Reports, users with the COR Advantage assessment will select Growth & Planning and then select Letter and Number Recognition Report.
Please note, access to Reports from a mobile device is dependent on the size and orientation of your screen. Your device must have at least 768 pixels and may need to be in landscape mode in order to access the modal and the report.
How to Record Data
The Letter and Number Recognition Report includes a built-in modal that allows you to easily record the letters and numbers that a student was able to identify. The report’s default display will show all of the letters in the top row, a list of students on the left column, and the totals on the furthest right column. Follow the steps below to access the modal and record the data:
- Select the student. Depending on your user level, when you first open up the Letter and Number Recognition Report you may have different views. More specifically, if you are a Teacher you will find the list of students and if you are a Director, you will first need to select the applicable classroom before seeing the list of students.
- Tap the symbol(s) the student has identified. Once you have selected a student, the modal will open up with three separate sections, Uppercase Letters, Lowercase Letters, and Numbers. Select the symbol(s) that the student has identified. A green circle will indicate that the symbol has been selected and the totals will automatically update. Please note, the totals are dynamic and will update as you select or deselect the symbols.
- Select Save. Once complete, select save and this will sync your data and bring you back to the report view.
The Letter and Number Recognition modal is a classroom tool designed for Teachers, but can also be accessed by Directors and Administrators. Capturing data from students can be done through collecting authentic observations of students or through rote assessment. Authentic observations occur naturally throughout your day. An example of this could include if one of your students was practicing writing his friend's name and recognized the letter K in the name Katherine. Rote assessment is more intentional and occurs when a Teacher shows a student an individual letter or number and asks them to identify the name. An example of this would be if a Teacher was showing a student the letter K and asked, "What letter is this?" to which the student would reply "K."
The Letter and Number Recognition Report is designed for either workflow. There is no limit to the number of times that the data can be recorded. Some Teachers may choose to capture and record the data every few months whereas others may prefer to input data once a week. As the report tracks data cumulatively, Teachers can choose the method and frequency that work best for them in their practice!
How to Track and View Data
Once data has been captured through the modal, users can quickly identify which symbols students have recognized. When opening up the report, the default view will be uppercase letters, but users can easily use the filter to view the data for lowercase letters or numbers. This report tracks cumulatively and builds over time, meaning when you open the modal, the symbols that the student recognized will still show from your previous sessions. Please note, if you are a user with the COR Advantage assessment, the data from the Letter and Number Recognition Report will not be affected by your period settings or school year.
