This article contains the following information:
Your students will each be working in their personalized EdReady paths at their own pace, and part of your role is to help ensure that they are doing so successfully. Whenever you're supporting your students virtually, it is helpful to be able to look at all your students and get a high-level view as to how they are progressing. You may see details across the class that helps you to see students that are doing well or struggling more than their peers, allowing you to provide encouragement and support.
More information about the details included in this report at: Student Data Summary Report.
Accessing the on-screen report
The on-screen Summary reports for a study path are the best place to see your students in a single consolidated view. 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

Time Spent Studying
Aside from the initial assessment (which may take longer, typically about an hour) most of the work students will do in EdReady will be in the Learn resources. After the initial assessment, most "Test" activities are fairly short, so any student who is actively trying to learn the material on their study path should be spending time in the Learn resources.
To help identify students that are/ not using these resources, EdReady tracks the Time Spent Studying (time in the Learn resources) separately. If a student is spending a lot of time in EdReady, but not studying, you will want to look into their activity in more detail.
Time Spent Studying vs Score Gain
Though every student is different, we estimate that the average student will need to study for approximately 6 minutes in EdReady for every 1 point score gain. Students that are significantly outside of this ratio may indicate other issues:
- Students who are studying greatly less than this (under 2 minutes/point) may be testing too much and not trying to learn the material. We recommend that you look at the student's detailed reports to see what their testing vs learning ratio looks like for the topics on their study path.
- If you see students testing over and over with very little study time, then they likely are trying to 'game' the system and are focused on increasing their score instead of increasing their knowledge.
- Some students may have a strong knowledge of the concepts on their study path: if you see a student mastering material in 1 test, then they may just be testing to remove familiar concepts off their study path.
- Students who are studying greatly more than this (more than 15 minutes/ point) may be struggling to understand the concepts on their study path. They may also feel unsure about their ability to take the topic tests and could use encouragement to Test themselves: they can always revisit the Learn resources and Test again if there is anything they didn't get right the first time.
The number of tests a student needs to take to master a topic may vary, but looking at the total number of Tests Taken across a cohort can help to identify the students that are testing significantly higher than their peers. Click on the "Tests Taken" column (you will need to use the "+" button to add this column to the on-screen report) to sort the data in descending order, then click again to see the highest number of tests at the top. You will want to look into their activity in more detail for students with large numbers of tests.
The details above are intended as broad-strokes guidelines to help use EdReady's vast details to identify the students that may be struggling. (Both those that may be struggling with the material, or struggling to learn effectively.) We recommend that you use this report and the details included as a way to help identify students that need further investigation.
