Watch Marina Taylor, our Director of Product Management, and Sara Varney, our Implementation Expert, share the ways you can use DreamBox to set learning goals for you students and monitor their progress using the Progress Report. Click HERE to view the free webinar recording.
Using AssignFocus™, educators can create Long-Term Assignments that present a student with lessons in a specified standard or cluster for 2-10 weeks, or until they meet the standard(s). The data collected from a student's progress in a Long-Term Assignment is organized in a Progress Report.
HOW TO VIEW THE PROGRESS REPORT
If a student has an active Long-Term Assignment, or if they had a Long-Term Assignment in the past, you will be able to view their Progress Report for the assignment.
1) Select the classroom or the individual student's name from the Navigation Pane.
2) Select the AssignFocus tab to view all assignments created for the student(s). You can uncheck "Short-Term Assignments" to narrow the list to only Long-Term Assignments.
3) On any Long-Term Assignment, click View to open the Progress Report.
Note: You can also view active Long-Term Assignments on the Student Overview Report.
HOW TO READ THE PROGRESS REPORT
At the top of the Progress Report, you can see the standard code or cluster name that was assigned and the current completion status of the assignment. The status may be one of the following:
- Not Started - The student has not yet worked on any lessons in the assignment.
- In Progress - The student has worked on at least one lesson in the assignment.
- Assignment Stopped - The student completed three of the earliest lessons in the assignment without demonstrated understanding. The assignment was automatically stopped because the student is struggling.
- Goal Reached - The student has reached 100% proficiency in the assigned standard or cluster.
- Goal Not Reached - The assignment's due date was reached before the student reached 100% proficiency.
- Completed All Available - If a student is in the Grades K-2 Learning Environment, their assignment may include lessons that are only playable in the Grades 3+ Learning Environment. They will be able to complete all lessons available in their environment and then they will receive this status. If you feel the student is ready for the 3-5 Environment, you can manually adjust the student by following the instructions HERE.
Assignment details also include the educator who made the assignment, the time spent on the assignment, the number of assigned lessons completed, and the student's total percentage of progress made. If a cluster of standards was assigned, click the drop-down menu to view the student's progress in each individual standard.
This graph compares a student's progress (Trend Line) with the trajectory needed to become proficient in the standard or cluster over the assignment duration (Aim Line). Hover over the Trend Line plot points in order to view the exact percentage of proficiency that week. At a glance, you can see if a student is on track to meet the standard. If they are falling below the Aim Line, use the information in the Progress Report to determine how you can help them progress.
The weekly time spent on the assignment and the number of lessons completed in the assignment are noted below each week number on the Baseline. This also displays the student's percentage of growth for that week. If a student is not meeting the Aim Line and you see that they have completed few lessons that week, they may need a reminder to work on their assigned lessons or to spend more time in DreamBox.
Completed Lesson List
Below the Proficiency Graph, you can view a full list of the assigned lessons that a student worked on for each week. The lessons may have been paused (not yet completed), completed with demonstrated understanding, or completed without demonstrated understanding. You will also see how long a student spent on each lesson. If a student is falling below the Aim Line and they have multiple paused lessons, multiple lessons completed without demonstrated understanding, or if they are spending a long time on each lesson, they may need additional guidance through their lessons. You can click Play Lesson to try the lesson yourself and best help the student through it.
