How Can I See If a Student Is Struggling?

*The Insight Dashboard allows teachers and parents to determine which students may need extra assistance.

IDENTIFYING A STRUGGLING STUDENT

USING THE NAVIGATION PANE:

While viewing list of students in the Navigation Pane, hover cursor over the caution symbol next to a student's name to view the reason they may need attention.

USING THE ACTIVITY FEED:

The Activity Feed shows a list of all lessons students have worked on over the past 30 days.

To try out the lesson a student is struggling, Click Play Lesson button to listen or work through the lesson.

*When helping the student, it is important not to solve the problems for them, but guide them through how to think through the problems. Completing lessons for the student would cause the program to move them forward in the curriculum when they may not be ready.
 

BASED ON STANDARDS:

You can view which students may need attention on specific standards using the Classroom Standards Report.

  • Select a classroom name from the Navigation Pane, view Classroom tab, and use drop-down menu to select grade level and Grid View.
  • For a description of these standards, hover your cursor over the standard codes.

IDENTIFYING AREAS OF ATTENTION ON A STUDENT OVERVIEW REPORT

The Student Overview Report contains thorough and illustrated information on an individual student's usage and progress, including areas in which the student may need attention.

The section What is my student currently working on? provides a full list of lesson groups that the selected student has worked on in DreamBox over the past 30 days, starting with the lesson groups they may be struggling with.

 

Preview Lessons and the Student Environments

*Instructions on how educators can sample the student learning environments or play demo lessons.

EXPLORE THE STUDENT LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

Click HERE to try out student learning environments.

 

SAMPLE LESSONS YOUR STUDENTS HAVE WORKED ON


Some reports in the Insight Dashboard list specific lessons or lesson groups that a student has worked on.
 

  • A lesson group includes a Play Demo button that launches a sample lesson from that group. All lessons in a lesson group use the same virtual manipulative, but vary in complexity.
  • A lesson includes a Play Lesson button that allows you to sample the same lesson the student worked on. Although you will sample the same lesson, the problems and numbers within the lesson may vary.

 

PREVIEW ASSIGNED LESSONS YOUR STUDENTS WILL WORK ON

While creating an assignment, click the button for one of the lesson types (Just Started Lesson, In-Progress Lesson, or Review Lesson) to preview a lesson the student may receive.

Note: Standards can include a range of lessons, so the previewed lesson may not represent the exact lessons a student receives in an assignment.
