Students tab updates

 

The Students tab in the teacher’s class player gives the teacher the proficiency view of all the students in her class in the subject. She can look at the mastery status of the students by domain and in a domain. She can also view the proficiency maps of all the students side-by-side and individually.

 

Competency report for the class

 

 

Each Student’s mastery in the domain is quantitatively represented. Dark blue indicates mastery, light blue indicates that the student has started learning the competency but has not mastered it and grey indicates the student is yet to begin learning the competency.

 

Domain report for the class

Clicking on the Domain in the Proficiency view page, (in this case, Counting and Cardinality) brings about a comparative view of all the competencies within the particular domain, and each Student’s progress in each competency, highlighted by tick marks.(in this case, 9 competencies in this domain)

 

In case there are no tick marks, the student has not started learning the competency yet, the light blue tick refers to in progress and a darker blue tick mark refers to a competency mastered.

 

 

Student proficiency map

Clicking on the Student profile icon opens up the proficiency map of the student. The proficiency map shows the student’s skyline and proficiency in the subject.

 

Along the x-axis are all the domains in the subject. The y-axis shows the increasing level of complexity in each domain represented by the Grades in K-12. Each cell in the domain represents a competency.

 

The student’s skyline marks the highest competency in each domain that the student has mastered.

 

The grade line joins the highest competencies covered across all domain for a particular grade level. The grade line can be seen by clicking on the grades shown along the y-axis. They work as toggle buttons. Clicking on them once shows the grade line. Clicking on it again hides the grade line.



 

 

Student competency report

 

This report provides information about the competency and the evidence of mastery for the student in that competency.  Clicking on any tick mark in the domain report for the class will bring up the competency report for that competency.

 

The teacher can also access the Learning map data for the competency. The learning map data provides information about the count of all collections, assessments, resources, questions available for that particular competency.

 

 

Additionally there is a Show Learning Map button which lists the available, collections, assessments, resources, questions for the specific competency.

 

 

All Learning content can be directly accessed from this Learning maps feature for each competency. For example, clicking on resources tab (shown as 5) will display all the resources which can be directly accessed.

 

 

Comparative proficiency report

Clicking on the grid icon on the top right corner, next to the student/domain/competency summary, provides card views for each student proficiencies

 

 

Clicking on the card of any student pulls up the student’s proficiency map with the skyline. By default, the proficiency map is shown in the compressed view. Clicking on the “Show Expanded Chart” will expand the chart and allow the teacher to inspect evidence of mastery for a competency by clicking on the competency cell.

 

Dark blue indicates mastery, light blue indicates that the student has started learning the competency but has not mastered it and grey indicates the student is yet to begin learning the competency.
