LearningField is pleased to introduce its new Engagement Dashboard which will enhance teacher insights about student performance.
The Engagement Dashboard from LearningField’s technology partner VitalSource, allows teachers to monitor students on a range of factors:
- which students have accessed resources
- how many pages are viewed over how many study sessions, and
- the average length of a study session
Data can be viewed as trends by class, by publishers or titles over a nominated date range, and drilled down to an individual student’s level of engagement. This includes how many pages have been printed, what device and operating system students are using, and if a student has used collaboration features like sharing notes or highlights.
Data is presented in bar charts, pie and line graphs, so it is easy to understand and analyse. The results can be exported into csv files and filtered by a range of criteria.
Director of LearningField Ben Heuston says this increased transparency over how students are using the e-textbook materials will forearm teachers who suspect students are lagging behind.
“We know that schools want and need as much insight as possible about student’s learning behaviours and engagement levels, particularly when they’re outside the classroom. This valuable data will support teachers in their decision-making about potential at-risk students as well as confirming which students are diligent.”
“These key indicators can help teachers to further tailor their lesson planning and drive personalised approaches to learning, which is easily supported through LearningField’s expansive choice of content. If a student is lagging in Year 9, for example, they can provide Year 8 materials in the same learning area to help improve student performance,” he said.
