We are happy to introduce a new report that can be viewed on and printed from the Insight Dashboard. The Student Overview Report provides thorough and illustrated information on an individual student's usage and progress. It is a great report to share with parents to give them a comprehensive snapshot of their child's success with DreamBox.
HOW TO VIEW THE STUDENT OVERVIEW REPORT
1) Log in to the Insight Dashboard and select the Classroom that the student is enrolled in from the Navigation Pane. If you are an administrator, you may need to select the school and teacher of the classroom first.
2) Select the student's name from the Navigation Pane. You will view the first tab on the Reports Pane: the Overview tab.
HOW TO READ THE STUDENT OVERVIEW REPORT
The Student Overview Report supplies a large amount of information on a single page. The information is separated into the three sections detailed below.
Note: Be sure to select the desired date range and Academic Standard for your report. You can adjust the date range by using the drop-down menu at the top-left of the Reports Pane. For information on changing your Academic Standard, click HERE.
IS MY STUDENT USING DREAMBOX ENOUGH?
The top-left section of the report shows your student's DreamBox usage for the selected date range, separated by time spent on DreamBox and lessons completed in DreamBox. When the date range is seven days or less, you will see only the total minutes/lessons completed on DreamBox within that time frame. When the date range exceeds seven days, you will also see the average minutes spent on DreamBox per week and the average number of lessons completed per week.
Black text indicates the student is using DreamBox as recommended.
Green text indicates the student is exceeding our recommended usage.
Orange text indicates the student is not meeting our recommended usage.
Our recommended usage is based on the student's grade level. The chart below provides more information.
WHAT IS MY STUDENT'S PROFICIENCY AND GROWTH?
Directly below the usage section of the report, you will find a chart that illustrates the student's proficiency in standards across all grade levels. The green proficiency bars in this chart are based on the student's full up-to-date DreamBox history and is not limited to the date range selected. However, the black Growth arrows are based on a student's growth over the selected date range only.
Each column represents a grade level and lists the number of standards the student has met out of the total number of standards supported in the grade level. Each row corresponds with a domain in the regional academic standard.
In the example above, Linda has met 3 out of 14 standards in Grade 1. At a glance, you can see that she is working on Kindergarten and Grade 1 standards for 'Counting'. She has completed the Kindergarten standards for 'Comparisons & Ordering' and is making progress in the domain's Grade 1 standards.
Note: Remember that DreamBox is non-linear. It is normal and expected that students will work in multiple grade levels simultaneously based on their individualized learning path.
WHAT IS MY STUDENT CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
This section lists the lesson groups that the student worked on over the selected date range (up to the last 30 days). It is organized by the student's status on each lesson group, starting with the lesson groups they May Need Attention in, then the ones In Progress, and ending with the lesson groups they were Proficient in over the date range.
Each row includes a description of the lesson group, the total time the student has spent on the lesson group over the selected date range, the number of lessons in the group the student has completed, and a button to try a demo of the lesson. Some lesson groups also include a letter in the Detail column that can be viewed and printed after a student becomes proficient in the lesson group. These letters describe the mathematical concept that the student has mastered in layman's terms and are a great way to share a student's successes with parents.
When a student may need attention or is due for a congratulation, you will see an Alerts section notifying you of these behavioral prompts.
This section provides the student's exact Growth statistics over the selected date range. Standards Met tallies the standards the student has completely demonstrated proficiency in. Standards Made Progress In counts the standards the student is working on by playing lessons within associated lesson groups. If a student makes progress in a standard and meets the standard, it will only be counted in the Standards Met statistic.
If there are no active assignments, you will see a suggestion to create a Long-Term Assignment and monitor the student's progress on the Long-Term Assignment Progress Report.
As students play DreamBox, they will earn certificates for certain achievements. These certificates can be viewed and printed on the Student Overview Report. The certificates are based on the date range selected at the top of the report. Click View next to an achievement name to open a pop-up window with the certificate. From here, click Print and follow your system printer prompts in order to print the certificate.
Note: Certificates earned before January 13th, 2017 will not be viewable on the Insight Dashboard.
