Each month, after a determination of Monthly Progress has been made, several tools have been developed to help programs monitor the completion of this task and communication of progress to parents and students.
Sharing with Parents
Once monthly progress has been determined, parents can no longer edit the “parent input” box, which becomes read-only. Also, at this time, a checkbox is surfaced where parents can indicate that they have received the progress determination, and an additional text box becomes available where comments can be recorded.
Sharing with Students
Once progress has been determined, the Certificated Teacher can only edit a checkbox that indicates Monthly Progress Reviewed with Student. For programs that meet with each student to review monthly progress, this tool allows them to track and document this task.
Via the Monitor Monthly Progress page, optional columns can be displayed to surface the data recorded above. Using the Data Table Actions & Options gear at the far right, in the Columns/Properties section, choose the month and which columns you would like displayed. Click the blue check marks to add columns.
These additional columns will display Yes/No to indicate whether progress was acknowledged by the parent and/or shared with the student.
An additional column, All Subject Courses Progress Complete, can also be displayed to show if monthly progress determination has been completed for individual courses.
Filters are available on each column to further narrow down the results.
In addition, the data in this table can be downloaded via the Data Tables Actions & Options menu and manipulated further in Excel.
Monthly Progress History
In the Monthly Progress Interface in a student learning plan, each tabbed course contains a selector that will open a data table displaying the History of progress in that course over time.
