FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Each time you collect a set of data, it is a session. On the “Sessions” page you can see a list of sessions and see learner performance on the objectives assessed.
A session template is an easy way to launch a session. In a template you can create a title and add learners and/or objectives. Then when you want to launch a session, it is easy because the information is ready to go.
Click into the session. You can do this from your dashboard if it is a recent session or by clicking on the sessions tab. When you click into the session there is a revise session button. This will take you back to the tracking page and will allow you to add/remove scores or notes.
When you revise a session, if you clear all scores and notes, the session will be erased.
If you are no longer using a session template, you can always unfavorite it. This will remove it from the last on your dashboard. To do this, go to your session templates page and click on the blue star in the upper right hand corner of the session template card. If you do want to delete the template, click on the name of the template and click delete.
No. Think of a template as a data type. This means for example, you should have one template for exit tickets for one content. Each time you collect a new set of data, launch a new session from the existing template. If you need to change objectives you can add or remove the desired objectives/learners to the template without creating a new template.
If you change a score in an observation, only the final score saves. If you score a "Yes" and change the score to a "Mostly" the final score will be a "Mostly."
A mastery score is the “Yes”, “Mostly”, “Sometimes”, “No” that is assigned to a learner on an objective on a daily basis. This data is shown on the “Sessions” page. The mastery level takes into account the trailing five scores to show if a learner is “At Mastery”, “Near Mastery,” “Needs Practice”, or “Intervention”. On the “Objectives” page, the data is shown in mastery levels to get a high level understanding of what your learners understand over time as they progress towards mastery.
A learner note is directly tied to a learner and should be used to describe observations on an individual learner. This will appear on the student detail page. A session note is tied to an entire session and should be used to describe whole group trends and misconceptions. You can also copy and paste links into session notes. It is recommended to keep lesson plans/exit ticket on a google doc so that you can copy and paste the link into notes and have more context to your data.
