Here are the notes from the presentation I made at each school. The link is to a note in Evernote which I have made public.

When you opened Stride Academy today, you saw a very different look on your dashboard. LTS will be conducting a free webinar on Wednesday, October 22 at 3:30 to discuss the features.
To register for the webinar, click here. You will receive an email containing information on the URL. and call-in number.
I listened to a short webinar myself and have spent some time exploring the new look. Here are some of my significant take-aways.
- On the previous dashboard, when you saw a certain percentage of students were working "Below Grade Level," you have wanted to know who those students are. Now, clicking on the bar shows the students who make up that percentage.
- On the "Recently Awarded Academic Badges," "recently awarded" is defined as the last five badges. If you are capturing a list of those students weekly (as I have suggested during work with faculties), be sure to click the "See all student details" to see the students who earned badges during the week that you would have otherwise missed.
- Knowing who has not completed PMA just got easier. You will see a blue link in the upper-right portion of the dashboard.
- One piece of information we used to get on the old dashboard is not here. Previously, the left-hand side of the dashboard provided percentage of students answering 70-100% of questions correctly, 50-70% correctly, and less then 50% correctly. The closest parallel I could give you is to run the Growth Report (which I have spoken about in faculty meetings). At the bottom of the report, you will see the percentage of correct answers for the class as whole within the two date ranges you selected. An upcoming post will give you a link to a spreadsheet where you can input those figures and get a nice graph for your students.
