How to use Analysze > Understanding to monitor my child's understanding of the content they've covered.

Updated over a week ago

In order to see the level of your child’s understanding in each grade and the content areas they’ve covered so far, head to the Families Dashboard and go to Analyze > Understanding.

Here you can view your child’s current level of understanding in each of the Common Core Standards and identify any gaps in their knowledge so that you can help target and support their learning.

You can select to view this data for each of the children linked to your family account by clicking on the child’s name within the 'Select a child' tile on the left hand side of the page.

Looking at the data, the two columns show how well your child currently understands each year group's curriculum content compared to their most recent Doodle Placement. When a child first starts using Doodle, our clever algorithm, Proxima™, will ask them a series of questions to determine their current level and confidence. This helps Doodle to create them a unique work program tailored to their strengths and weaknesses.

The traffic light system represents your child’s level of understanding for each year group as a whole, and each Common Core Standard (CCS) within that year group. Common Core Standards indicate what children are expected to have learned at the end of each grade. The traffic lights change color depending upon the child’s accuracy with questions from that particular CCS.

Red = the child is currently developing their understanding of this area

Amber = the child is working at an average level for this area

Green = the child is exceeding expectations in this area.

You can break this information down even further by viewing their understanding for each individual curriculum topic by clicking on the grey arrows.

The traffic lights change depending upon two things - the percentage of questions answered from concepts related to that particular CCS and the child’s accuracy with those questions.

Questions answered on X-a-day, Power Up, New this Week and Assignments are included in the data for your child’s current understanding.

It is perfectly normal, and what we would expect, for children to be covering content from a different grade to their actual grade in school. The reason for this is that Doodle is designed to revise and revisit learning from previous year groups to ensure a really solid foundation that can support their current learning. Doodle will be closing any gaps in a child’s learning in order to support their classroom learning.
