Facilitate and Encourage Monitor Student Progress Review AI Assistant reports regularly to monitor student progress. Use the data to determine which students are succeeding and which students might be struggling to make progress. Where to look... PROGRESS: Elements I Exercise Progress - AI Assistant The colored line shows student progress and their percent complete. Each dot indicates a day the student worked on the exercise. What to look for... what it means Is the line going up? The student is completing content accurately and making progress. Is the line flat across several dots? The student may be struggling and you need to find out why. Are there long lapses between dots? The student may be skipping this exercise. USAGE: Usage Details - Schedule Do you see half-filled gray circles? The student is working on this exercise, but not meeting the scheduled time. Make sure that they have time to complete their daily schedule. If fatigue is an issue, taking breaks is okay. Do you see red circles? The student is skipping this exercise. Provide support to help them re-engage. USAGE: Usage Details - Minutes/Trials Are many days highlighted in red? The student is not meeting their daily schedule. Check the Schedule tab in this report to investigate further. Is the student answering fewer questions than usual? They may be distracted or losing focus. In comparison to their previous activity, a low number of trials to minutes may indicate the student is not applying themselves to the task. Is the student answering more questions than usual? They may be rushing. In comparison to their previous activity, a high number of trials to minutes may indicate the student is trying to amass points, or to progress more quickly, but rushing can result in mistakes. Ask them to turn Autoplay off. Remind them that making progress depends on accuracy, not speed. 12 Elements I Teacher Manual

Facilitate and Encourage Where to look... PROGRESS: Progress Details - AI Assistant Completion Status Percent Correct To make progress, students must get around 90% correct on each level. Number of Trials The number varies depending on level. If a level must be repeated, the student may only be required to repeat a subset of the language structures, in which case the number of trials will be reduced. What to look for... what it means Are there red bars under Completion Status? When the student doesn’t achieve a high enough percentage of correct answers they will repeat a level (or at least repeat those language structures they are struggling with). It is important to note how close the student is to meeting the advancement criteria. Often, simply explaining this to the student can result in more focused attention on the repeated level. If a student has to repeat a level several times, they may need more support. Percent Correct - Is percent correct above 80%? The student is close to the criterion for progressing (80% or 90% correct, depending on the question group). Encourage them to avoid mistakes by slowing down, thinking about each question, and using the Replay button. Is the percent correct well below 80%? The student may be struggling with one or more language structures. Go to the Errors section of this report to determine where the student needs additional support. When a level is repeated, does the number of trials decrease? This indicates that the student has mastered some language structures at this level, and is making progress. When a level is repeated, does the number of trials stay the same? The student has not mastered additional language structures. If their percent correct increases, this indicates that they are learning from their mistakes, and may just need more practice. Remind them to listen to and observe the corrective feedback to better understand “why” their answer was wrong before moving on to the next question. Otherwise, go to the Errors section of this report which can help you determine where the student needs additional support. PROGRESS: Errors - AI Assistant Content the student is struggling with is indicated in red. Are specific language structures highlighted in red? Consider providing the student with instruction on the specific vocabulary and/or language structures with which they are struggling. The “Adjust Instruction/Intervene” section in this teacher manual provides suggestions for how to support students who might be struggling with AI Assistant.
