This article contains the following information:
EdReady is constantly capturing your students' activities, and these on-screen reports display them in an easy-to-read format. Here you can see the main activities students complete in their study path - testing & learning - to better understand how they are spending their time. You can review these details at any time, but especially will want to dig in for students that stand out in the classroom-level reports (more info).
Accessing the on-screen reports
There are two ways to access the detailed reports for a student: which one you'll want to use may vary depending on where you're starting from.
From the reports dashboard:
- Click on the Student Data tab
- In this table, locate the student you're interested in and click the Study Path Details link
- You will see a pop-up window: select the goal & study path you're interested in to be taken to the detailed student reports.
From the Study Paths reports:
If you're already looking at the reports for a study path, you can easily access a student's detailed reports for that study path from the Student Data / Summary report by clicking on the Details link:
To navigate to this page:
- From your reports dashboard, ensure you are on the Study Paths with Student Activity tab (this will be open by default when you first log in)
- In this table, locate the study path you're interested in and click the Reports link
- Click on the Student Data tab (the Summary report will open by default)
- Click the Details link in the Actions column for the desired student.
Key Student Data
As you look to determine if this student is using EdReady effectively, the following sections are helpful to review. (A complete look at all the details on-screen can be found HERE.)
This table shows you when students completed their test activities, on a timeline. Students who use EdReady consistently, with shorter sessions spread across several days, will typically perform better than those that work in fewer, longer sessions. Ideally you'll see the tests spread out across several days versus seeing many testing attempts only on sporadic days.
Retake - Study Time Relation by Topic
This chart easily allows you to see the number of Tests side-by-side with how long (in minutes) the student spent in the Learn resources for that Topic. These details are extremely useful to identify students that are testing over-and-over: they may be trying to 'game' the system and get their score up, or may be stuck on some concepts in that Topic. These guidelines can be useful as you try to determine if the student requires follow-up:
Tests Taken: the number of Tests a student has for a topic can help to offer a clue for how effectively they are using the platform:
- 1 Test: the student may have taken an initial test to see where they stand with the material, or may have been able to master the topic in a single try
- 2 Tests: this is very common - students may Test themselves and realize there are some concepts they need to revisit, then are able to master the topic after visiting the Learn resources and taking a second Test
- 3 Tests: the student may be struggling with this material or may not be taking time to visit the Learn resources in-between Test attempts. This student may need some additional guidance to move forward successfully, especially if you can see that they are not taking time to study
- 4+ Tests: if a student is working in EdReady to truly learn the material, this many testing activities is unlikely to be needed. Instead, students with this many tests are likely just testing over-and-over to try and raise their score without studying. Intervention by their instructor is strongly encouraged.
Study Time: students will, on average, need to study a Topic for 30 minutes in order to earn mastery. (Of course, this will vary if the student is already familiar with much of the topic or if this is something new they are learning for the first time.) If you're unsure a student's study time is too low, we use the following guidelines:
- Student has studied less than 15 minutes: may be concerning, especially if they have tested that topic more than 2 times.
- Student has studied less than 5 minutes: is very concerning, especially if they have tested that topic more than 1 time.
