Understanding the Skills Report
This report is designed to monitor skill proficiency. It provides detailed information about each student's skill mastery progress organized by module, unit and workspace.
How to use this report:
- Grouping students according to their skill proficiency level
- Identifying skills that need additional support or remediation
Skill level refers to the student's proficiency level of skills practiced within the workspace, at the time of completion. Students are considered to be proficient in a skill in MATHia when they demonstrate a 95% probability that they understand that skill.
In the example above, Dario and Sheridan need Remediation on this skill. If you click on the other tabs, you will see the names of students who are near proficient, proficient and in progress.
Note: Concept Builder workspaces are not included in this report because students are developing new mathematical understandings and skills are not being measured.
Students Not Mastered refers to the number of students who have completed the workspace and have one or more skills below proficient in the workspace.
For each skill, Students Below Proficient refers to the number of students who are not proficient in the skill.
Selecting on each tab allows you to focus on the skill level category breakdown by individual students.
For each skill, a student can be in one of the following categories:
- Proficient: The student has a greater than or equal to 95% probability of understanding and correctly executing that skill.
- Near Proficient: The student has a 70%–94% probability of understanding and correctly executing that skill.
- Remediation Suggested: The student has <70% probability of understanding and correctly executing that skill.
- In Progress: The student is currently completing problems that address this skill.
- Not Started: The student has not encountered workspaces that address this skill.
This report is designed to monitor skill proficiency for an individual student. All of the metrics from the Group Skills Report are the same for the Student Skills Report, except it shows the individual student skill proficiency for each skill within a workspace.
How to use this report:
- Identifying individual skills that need additional support or remediation
Tip: Use the filter tool to focus on a specific proficiency level for the student.
In the example above, for the workspace Writing Direct Variation Equations, Dario has 3 of 4 skills below proficient. Use the filter tool to focus on a specific proficiency level for the student.
