Facilitate and Encourage

Facilitate and Encourage Monitor Student Progress Review Robo-Dog 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 - Robo-Dog 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 completing 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 questions 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. 52 Robo-Dog Teacher Manual

When the student doesn’t achieve a high enough percentage of correct answers, they will repeat a word group: • Processing Level 1: Vocabulary Instruction is on; students are taught the vocabulary immediately before each question. • Encourage students to use Help to repeat the words if they are having difficulty differentiating between the phonemes. • Processing Levels 2-4: Help is available, but students are encouraged to learn the vocabulary as soon as possible and will need to master it by the final level. • Incorrectly answered questions and questions answered with Help will be repeated at the end of the level, and will need to be answered correctly without Help to pass a level. • More than the minimum number of questions indicates that many questions are being incorrectly answered. If a student is missing a lot of questions, encourage them to use Help to learn the vocabulary and the differences between the phonemes. • Natural Speech: Help is not available. • Incorrectly answered questions will be repeated at the end of the level but will not count towards progression. • More than the minimum number of questions indicates that many questions are being incorrectly answered and should be practiced. • 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. If a student struggles at any level without the number of questions decreasing, they may need more support. • Students who struggle to maintain a high level of accuracy for an extended period may do better by attacking the content in smaller chunks. Have the student turn off Autoplay, answer 10 questions with laser focus, and take a brief brain break before doing the next set of 10. Academic Vocabulary: Are there red bars under Progress?
