Facilitate and Encourage

Facilitate and Encourage Monitor Student Progress Review Ele-Bot 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: Foundations I Exercise Progress - Ele-Bot 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, add some breaks to their schedule. Do you see red circles? The student is skipping this exercise. Provide support to help them re-engage. USAGE: Usage Details - Minutes/Questions 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. Remind them that making progress depends on accuracy, not speed. 12 Ele-Bot Teacher Manual

Facilitate and Encourage Where to look... PROGRESS: Progress Details - Ele-Bot Progress Percent Correct To make progress, students must get 80-90% correct on a question group. Levels include multiple question groups. Questions 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 questions will be reduced. What to look for... what it means Are there red bars under Progress? 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. 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. Note that a student with a high percent correct on a level may have only passed some question groups and not others. In this case they must repeat the question groups not already passed. Is percent correct well below 80%? The student may be struggling with one or more language structures. Check Errors section of this report to determine where the student needs additional support. When a level is repeated, does the number of questions decrease? The student has mastered some language structures at this level and is making progress. When a level is repeated, does the number of questions stay the same? The student has not mastered additional language structures. If their percent correct increases, they are learning from their mistakes and may simply 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, check the Errors section of this report which can help you determine where the student needs additional support. PROGRESS: Errors - Ele-Bot Content the student is struggling with is highlighted 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. See the “Adjust Instruction/Intervene” section in this teacher manual for suggestions on supporting struggling students.
