Launch Metrics Dashboard for Teachers Overview

During the back-to-school period, schools engage in a key set of actions that set the pace for the rest of the year. Now, teachers like you have direct access to monitor these key back-to-school actions using the metrics in the new Instructional Launch Metrics Dashboard from the Overall tab. This dashboard makes it easier for you to use data to plan and collaborate with other teachers to ensure a successful launch of the new school year.

What do these metrics mean?

Suggested Actions

Assigned first project/unit 

% of core-sections that have assigned first project to 80% of students.




Check the "Clicked final products" metric. While a teacher can assign a project at any time, it is recommended that they internalize and plan for the project first. This requires understanding the final products to be able to backwards plan.

Use this resource to learn how to assign a project/unit in the platform.

Accompanying Metric

Suggested Actions

Edited a Notebook

% of core-non-math sections where 80% of students have edited an assigned Notebook.



Check the "Have assigned projects" metric. If students haven't been assigned a project then they won't be able to start editing their Notebooks.

Make sure you know how students can begin work on a checkpoint.

Requested feedback

Check the "Edited a Notebook" metric. If students haven't been working on notebooks then they won't have a checkpoint to submit.

Consider setting and enforcing a due date for students to submit the checkpoint they're working on.

Provided R/Y/G feedback

% of core-sections where the teacher has provided R/Y/G feedback to 80% of their students.



Check the “Requested feedback" metric. You can still give R/Y/G feedback even if a student has not submitted a checkpoint, but ideally students are requesting feedback by submitting one.

Make sure you know how to give R/Y/G feedback on the platform.

Provided comment feedback

% of core non-math sections where the teacher has provided Notebook comments (including audio comments) to 80% of their students.



Check the "Edited a Notebook" metric. If students haven't started working on Notebooks, there won't be anything to give comment feedback on.

Make sure you know how to give comment feedback on the platform.

Suggested Actions

Submitted first project

% of core-non-math sections where 80% of students have submitted their first project.



Check the "Provided R/Y/G feedback" and "Provided comment feedback" metrics. If students are not getting timely helpful formative feedback, it can be difficult for them to know how to submit the final products.

Check out the "Curriculum Preparation Templates & Tools" resource to get a deeper understanding of curriculum preparation and ownership.

Submitted first EUA assessment

% of core-sections where 80% of students have submitted their first EOU assessment.



Check the “Provided R/Y/G feedback" metric. If students are not getting timely helpful formative feedback on their cooldowns, they may not be ready for the EOU assessment.

Make sure you know how to administer end-of-unit assessments on the platform.

Passed first PFA

% of students who have passed their first PFA in a core class.



Check the "Attempted first PFA" metric. If students aren't attempting PFAs then they have not yet had an opportunity to pass one.

Implement a strategy to help students get back on track.
