"Instant Stats" Added to Stride

Last spring, Stride added "Instant Stats" for both students and teachers. It has proven to motivate students to do their best as they answer questions. The percentage goes up or down with the answer to each question. It has given teachers a great way to see how their students are doing as they monitor a group in the computer lab or classroom. 

Instant Stats
Teachers: at the top of your Dashboard is where you will find your shiny new Realtime Stats ticker.  At a glance, you know how many students are logged in and on-task. Click on "Realtime Stats" to dig deeper.
Class Live Monitor
As you investigate further, you see a list of your enrolled students and 
  • Who is currently online/offline in Stride?
  • How long have they been working in the current session?
  • How many items have they answered?
  • How many correct?
  • When did they answer their last item, and how long have they been idle?
  • What game have they played most recently?
  • What subject are they working in?
This data is automatically refreshed every 30 seconds!
Student Session Live Monitor
Meanwhile, a new real-time ticker in the Stride student interface helps each student stay accountable and on-task! As they answer questions correctly or incorrectly, they will see their number and percentage correct automatically adjust. They can also begin to see correlation between their pace (questions per minute) and their percentage correct - discouraging them from guessing.
Be sure your teachers, staff and students are aware of these new instant progress monitoring tools, and send us some feedback on how YOU are utilizing the new Class Live Monitor in your classroom! You and your students can be featured in our next e-newsletter.

Have a wonderful week, and Stride ON!
