Assignment Results Matrix Upgrades
Knowing student strengths and weaknesses is essential for preparing all learners to meet and exceed the Common Core Math Standards in Math on standardized assessments. Our recently upgraded Assignment Results Matrix provides macro and micro real-time data allowing educators to progress monitor and identify standards for reteaching and intervention.
Here are some features that are now supported by this update:
- Users can now expand and collapse student performance data from Domain to Standard to Stem. Question stems can be viewed by simply hovering on the standard.
- Data for particular student groups can be quickly sorted by Intervention Group or by Section.
- Improved color coding to help educators monitor student progress strategically. Each priority domain, target, and standard is colored gold with the supporting domains, targets, and standards colored blue.
The Assignment Results Matrix also allows for fluid “District to Student Desktop” conversations of student performance about how to best support student progress toward meeting and exceeding the standard. Reteaching concepts occurs in real-time with students having instant access to instructional videos supporting the busy teacher and putting the student at the center of their learning.
