Export data creates a permanent backup of student data for your records.
It is a record of student progress at that time which can be used as a comparison with later exports.
Baseline and Current Assessment Results
The first assessment result is permanently stored as a ‘baseline’ that is used as a comparison with later results to measure progress through the program.
The ‘Current’ result is the most recent result achieved by the student in the assessment game.
If the assessment game has only been played once then the ‘Baseline’ and ‘Current’ results will be identical.
If the assessment has been taken three times then there would be a ‘Baseline’ (first time), ‘Current’ (most recent result) and ‘Previous’ (the result prior to the Current result).
% Rate of Progress
The total number of words learned divided by the time learning (minutes) gives a rate of progress.
Each lesson contains a finite number of words that relate to the rule being taught.
The words in each lesson are repeated many times in the context of different games, e.g. the process of phonemic encoding, whole word recognition, rhyming, sentence reading, vocabulary etc.
When a lesson has been completed, the words which have been consistently answered correctly are deemed as learned.
The number of times the words in a lesson have been attempted will be many times greater and this is recorded as correct answers.
Games are either ‘Reading’ or ‘Spelling’.
Words learned for reading are recorded from reading games and vice versa.
5 lessons are automatically set as learning targets when an assessment game is completed.
The target lessons can be customised by the teacher in the student’s report.
When every reading activity in a lesson has been passed then the reading target is completed.
Each lesson has curriculum objectives which can be viewed in the student’s report.
These objectives are completed when the lesson is passed and date stamped.
This report can be used to see which lessons and objectives have been completed historically.
The program will remember the last lesson undertaken and return to it.
Some people prefer to work through each lesson methodically rather than targeting specific areas.
There are 100 lessons in the program and displaying the number of completed lessons indicates how far a student has progressed through the entire program.
