If you are not familiar with the basics of the Experience Dashboard, please look at the Experience Dashboard article.
When first assigning and guiding a learning experience, this view helps the teacher see who is "in" the experience (student names for those logged in will be in blue.) In the face-to-face classroom, you'll most likely use this dashboard to make sure all your students successfully open the learning experience. You can also check to make sure students stay logged in (if you see students working on their devices, but their names are not blue, you know they are not working on the learning experience you have assigned.)
This same approach works in the synchronous remote classroom. In the asynchronous remote classroom, you can periodically "check in" to see who is working, and how they are doing.
Look for Classwide Difficulties or Misconceptions
This dashboard shows how each student and the class as a whole are doing on every formative assessment. Each time a student responds, a colored dot appears in the Responses Dashboard. The responses are auto-graded when possible:
- green = correct answer
- blue - partially correct
- red = incorrect answer
- gray = open response (cannot be auto-graded)
By looking at the Responses Dashboard vertically, a teacher can see which questions the class finds challenging. By viewing the dashboard for an individual student, it's possible to see when certain students may be struggling.
To understand which questions are depicted, use the question tool-tip and position. The tool-tip indicates the question type, and the position within each scene reflects the question itself.
Review Real-Time Quiz Grading
Some of the responses depicted on the dashboard are end-of-experience quiz questions. In this case, in addition to the standard indication of correct and incorrect responses, when students submit the quiz by clicking "End Quiz,” their quiz score appears. The score is indicated as a percentage of correct answers within the quiz itself.
The quiz provides an indication of whether or not students (and the class) generally understood key topics in the learning experience. It's a good idea to review the results. If there are particular questions that many students struggled with, navigate to the quiz to view both the question and the chosen responses. You may see certain common incorrect answers, which can help you focus your reteaching efforts.
A Note About Skipped Quiz Questions:
If students skip questions on a quiz, the questions are marked incorrect (shown in red) and scored as zero when calculating the quiz score.
