As a parent/guardian, you may want to see what your child is working on at school. On the Dashboard section from the menu on the left, you can explore:
In the Current section, your child can explore the projects and focus areas that they are currently working on for all of their classes, as well as any upcoming (or incomplete) action items. Projects are deeper learning experiences that challenge students to build and apply cognitive skills, or higher level thinking and life skills, such as critical thinking, communication and problem-solving. For each project, students must learn specific content knowledge associated with it, which we call focus areas. Each focus area has an associated playlist with a diverse array of learning resources for students. Projects have both power and additional focus areas. You can explore the projects and focus areas your student is working on by clicking on them.
The This Year section shows your child’s progress across all subjects. Scroll down to see each of your child’s courses, as well as the projects and focus areas for each course.
The vertical blue line is the pacing line, and it indicates where your child should be today in order to be on track, or on-pace, to complete a given course by the end of the school year. Projects and focus areas to the left of the line are either completed or behind schedule, while all projects and focus areas to the right of the line are upcoming in the school year. Students are free to work on focus areas ahead of time or return to previous focus areas for review at any time.
Note: Projects that have been assigned are sized proportionally, depending on the start and end dates of the projects. For example, a longer project will take up more space than a shorter project. Projects that are unassigned, as well as all focus areas, are spaced equally and are presented at the same width.
Your child can view progress in a single subject area (ex: English, history, math, science, world language, electives) over time, including courses from previous or upcoming years. Students can select which subject area they'd like to view on the Learning Continuum section in the upper right corner.
Students can use this information drive their own learning and move through course material at their own pace. If students are pacing ahead on focus areas and want to challenge themselves or progress to the next grade level, they are able to do so. If students need to review course material from previous years, they are able to refer to that material, as well.
