The Dashboard tab houses the curriculum and shows your student’s academic progress.
In the Current tab, you can explore the projects and supporting focus areas that your student is currently working on in all of his/her classes, as well as his/her upcoming action items. Projects are deeper learning experiences that challenge students to build and apply cognitive skills, or higher-order thinking/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 tab shows your student’s progress across all subjects. Each course’s projects and focus areas are shown in a row. Scroll down to see all of your student’s courses.
The vertical blue line is our pacing line, and it indicates where a student should be today in order to be on pace to complete the course by the end of the school year. Everything to the left of the line should be complete to be on track with his/her work. As the year progresses, the line will continue moving to the right until the end of the year.
Projects and focus areas to the left of the line are either completed or behind schedule. Those to the right are upcoming. Students are free to work on focus areas ahead of time or return to previous focus areas for review at any time.
