How do I use the Learners tab to personalize Project assignments?

From any Project page, you teach, you can click on Learners to group your students by their previous cognitive skill and focus area data.

To access the Learners tab:

  1. Go to a Project that you teach
  2. Click Learners to the right of the Plans tab

You can either Start from scratch or Start from suggestions. Starting from scratch will allow you to create your own groupings. Starting from our suggestions will group your students by their historical data. You can always customize our groupings after the fact!

You'll then be able to use these groupings while assigning work in the Plans tab.

Cognitive Skills

For each cognitive skill that a Project assesses, you'll see:

  • Passing rate
  • Histograms grouping students by Cognitive Skills scores
    • Red: Not passing, <= 70% Cognitive Skills score
    • Yellow: Passing, between a 70%-85% Cognitive Skills score
    • Green: Passing, >= 85% Cognitive Skills score

Suggested groupings are determined by the cognitive skill data above.

  • Red: students that "Struggle with" a skill
  • Yellow: students that "Are on track for" a skill
  • Green: students that "Need a challenge on" a skill  

Focus Areas

For each focus area associated with a Project, you'll see:

  • Passing rate
  • Histograms grouping students by passing rate
    • Red: Not passing
    • Green: Passing

Suggested groupings are determined by the passing rate data above.

  • Red: students that have attempted and "Struggle with" the focus area
  • Yellow: students that have almost mastered and "Are on track for" the focus area
  • Green: students that have mastered and "Are on track for" the focus area

Foundational Skills

You can also group your students by the following Foundational Skills:

  • Language
  • Numeracy
  • Reading
  • Self-Direction
  • Writing

When you're finished viewing student data on the Learners tab, click Assign Project in the upper right corner to begin assigning checkpoints, activities, and resources to your students. You'll be able to see the same Cognitive Skills student data during Project assignment. Students will be grouped by Cognitive Skills scores, allowing you to either Assign Group or Unassign Group for different groups of students by Cognitive Skills scores. Learn more about assigning Projects.
