What learner progress page is and how to find it

How to find the learner progress page

Click on the learner's name from the Progress on Topic page (it doesn't matter which topic) or the Create Assignment page.

What is a learner progress page?

The Progress on Topic is where the teacher can see how well the class is making progress within a topic.

The Learner's Progress Page is where the teacher can see how well a learner is making progress on every topic.

Everything that learners can learn within the app is split into topics such as perimeter and each of these is split up into layers. Each square represents the learner's progress in each layer within each topic Generally the teacher is only interested in the colour of the layer

What the colour tells us

Rather than see the exact number of days of the depth of learning, getting a sense of the size is more useful - this is indicated by the colour of the lozenge representing the layer.

Light grey means the layer has not been assessed yet or that it has been assessed before as "not ready to learn yet".

Dark grey means the layer is in the process of being assessed. It will be assessed by the teacher when the learner does a pre assess assignment 

Light blue means the layer is fragile learning - the layer is likely to be forgotten if not practised soon and the learner may not be able to answer questions from the layer accurately yet. The layer will be practised within a timely practice assignment quite frequently. 

Medium blue means the layer is improving it will be practised within a timely practice assignment less frequently than fragile learning but more frequently than mastered learning.

The deeper shade of blue means the layer is considered mastered. This means the teacher can rely on the layer when teaching harder layers to the learner. The learner will still practise questions from the layer but only infrequently.

best learn later a layer or find out more information

By clicking on any square the teacher can see summary information (this is found at the bottom of the page) on how the learner has answered questions on each layer within each topic. The teacher may also be able to best learned later - LESLEY update the layer by clicking the red bin symbol.The teacher can bin a layer from the learner's timely practice EXCEPT when the layer is within an assignment.

If the layer is within an assignment the "top left corner of the square will be turned over". If the teacher wishes to delete the layer the teacher may 

  • assess the assignment - and then return to the learner progress page to delete the layer
  • or (if the layer is still fragile learning) delete the layer when assessing the learner assignment.

What the numbers tell us 

The depth of learning (in days) - this is an indication of how deeply embedded the learning is within the learner's memory. The higher the number the more deeply embedded the memory. 

The number of times the learner has had the layer assessed as star (feedback), ~ (oops) or tick is perhaps not the best metric (as the most recent few assessments are the most telling) but the metric is readily available to the app - so is given as a "much better than nothing" indication of how the learner has answered questions on the layer.

The page best learned later - LESLEY update is best referred to when the odd layer needs to be removed from the learners learning pool and the page thinning out describes when a number of layers need to be best learned later - LESLEY update-ed to avoid cascade failure.
