How can I view my child's progress?

An explanation of the Analyze > Progress page on the Parent Dashboard

Updated over a week ago

From the Families Dashboard, you can monitor the progress your child is making in DoodleMath.

Analyze > Effort

Analyze > Effort displays how often your child is using DoodleMath over specified lengths of times comparing this to their personalized target, if set.

The chart displays the number of DoodleStars your child has earned over a given timescale. You have the option of selected a specific timescale from the buttons at the top of the screen.

By hovering over a column within the chart, a breakdown of the work completed on that date will be shown and the streak your child has reached on that day will be displayed.

From this page, parents now have the ability to reinstate a child's streak should it break.

More details on streak reinstatement can be found here.

Analyze > Understanding

Here you can view your child's current level of understanding and the results from their last Doodle Placement.

You can also start a new Doodle Placement for your child.

Tricky questions are displayed within this page and are denoted by an exclamation mark next to the CCS that the question came from .

Finally, assignments can be added to your child's account, by clicking on the 'plus' sign next to the CCS name title.

Analyze > Progress

By heading to Analyze > Progress you will be able to view your child’s progress against the percentage of CCS (Common Core Standards) they’ve covered for each grade.

On the graph that appears you can see how your child is progressing through the content for the different grades, whether they are on track to meet their target and how they are doing compared to other children born in the same year and month.

You can select to view this data for each of the children linked to your family account by clicking on their name. You can adjust the timespan shown on the graph by using the drop down box next to Time.

The blue line that appears shows your child's progress according to the percentage of Common Core Standards that they have covered so far.

If you see a drop, it is due to a Doodle Placement being completed. A drop is not a bad thing! The reason for the drop is that, after completing the Doodle Placement, the algorithm feels that the child needs to consolidate their learning on a few topics to ensure that these areas are really embedded before moving the child on, resulting in a stronger foundation to build their learning upon.

The yellow line that appears on the graph shows your child’s goal, if you have set one for them. You can toggle this on or off by ticking or unticking the box at the top:

Setting a goal is a great way to support your child if they need a little more support in their learning, or to provide an extra challenge! If you have not set a goal for your child and would like to, or would like to change the goal for your child, you can do this by scrolling down to Goals and clicking on Set a new Goal. You will then need to enter a goal end date and select a goal from the list. You will see the target number of stars required each week to achieve that goal. Sometimes it helps to try a few different end dates as this will bring up different goals that are both challenging and achievable. When you have found a goal you are happy with select it and then tap save. For more information on Goals and Targets, please see here.
