The Knowre Math Teacher Dashboard is loaded with actionable data to help inform your instruction. Located on the Teacher Dashboard, the Insights tab gives you a look at student activity, overall class performance and progress, and students that need additional support in a chosen date range. You’re also able to see how your class has been progressing for a previous date range. For example, if you are viewing data from the last 30 days, you will also see your class’s average KSS and Achievement for the 30 days before that. This is a great way to see how your class’s performance is trending over time. Data in other tabs give data based on the most recent attempt, while the Insights tab delivers data on all skill and problem attempts during the selected time period. Keep in mind, the Insights tab gives data on lessons and skills students have completed in the primary grade/curriculum for the class.
As students return to school after winter break goal setting can be a useful exercise in refocusing effort and attention during what can be a challenging transition.
The most effective goals are co-created with students. Co-created goals foster more of a sense of buy in and agency on the part of the student. Students are often told what they need to do so allowing them instead to take part in the goal setting process can go a long way towards increasing engagement.
Teacher feedback drives Knowre Math program development. These new updates reflect requests we’ve received from teachers regarding the need for additional insight into student performance on assignments. It is our goal to continuously improve the program to better meet the needs of you and your students so please don’t hesitate to send feedback our way.
Student engagement is one of the most common challenges faced by teachers who are currently implementing hybrid or remote learning models. Between technology challenges, video conferencing fatigue, and the regular distractions of working from home, it can be difficult for both teachers and students to concentrate and engage.
As students reach higher levels of math, incoming skill gaps can be particularly challenging since they have compounded over so many years. It can often be difficult to figure out where to begin when the dual tasks of closing skill gaps and teaching new material are on the to-do list.
This article includes common skill gaps that we recommend reviewing with students during the beginning of the school year. The recommended skills shared come out of data collected from Knowre Math’s Ready? Check. Go! diagnostic. This diagnostic is designed to identify skills gaps by giving students a chance to engage with key topics from their prior math course (ie. 6th graders take a Ready! Check. Go! focused on 5th grade math skills).
At the beginning of any new school year there is the expectation that many students will have experienced some learning loss since they were not actively engaging with math learning and practice during the summer break.
Time is precious, and as educators know, there are only so many minutes of instructional and practice time on any given school day.
The new Knowre Math Insights page, which is found on the Teacher Dashboard, provides specific, actionable, and time bound information to help you focus and drive student learning during those precious minutes.
In the immense plethora of emotions and things to deal with during this time, we at Knowre want to help where we can.
Personalized learning (however you may define it) is a fundamental tenet of what we strive to accomplish through Knowre Math. Our goal is to mirror the one-on-one interaction between a student and a teacher as much as possible.
