In Catalyze & Elevate, Target Groups can be set up in order to support custom data disaggregation. The Target Group can be set up differently for each Class/Participant Group so it may vary within a Community.
The Target Group Summary provides a read-out of what target groups were set for each Class/Participant Group. The “Class/Participant Group” column in this table shows the name of each entity in the Community. The “Target Group Name” column shows the name of the Target Group that was set for each — it is left blank when a Target Group is disabled. Finally, the “# Enrolled” column shows the number of participants that have been marked as being members of the Target Group.
You can use this table to better understand results from the Target Group in your reports. For example, from the Equity Overview table in an Elevate report you might notice that the Target Group has shown considerably more improvement over time compared with participants not in the Target Group. You could then navigate to the Target Group Summary, and learn that for most Classes in your Community, the Target Group was English Langauge Learners and the group represents a strong percentage of the Class. In that case, you would know that teachers in your Community were especially successful at improving learning conditions for English Language Learners.
