Facilitate and Encourage

Facilitate and Encourage Monitor Student Progress Review Hoop Nut 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 - Hoop Nut 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 questions to minutes may indicate that the student is trying to amass points or progress through the content without actually learning it. Ask them to turn Autoplay off. Remind them that making progress depends on accuracy, not speed. 24 Hoop Nut Teacher Manual

Each phoneme pair includes a minimum of 48 questions. • Most students should be able to complete a level in under 100 questions. • A student who is still working on a level after more than 125- 150 questions may be struggling. • If a student has answered more than 150 questions, make sure the student remains attentive and motivated. Any increase in a student’s chart shows that the student is making progress. Celebrate these improvements, however small they may seem. See the “Adjust Instruction/Intervene” section in this teacher manual for suggestions on supporting struggling students.
