At the top right of the dashboard, you will see your student’s Elephant Age. The Elephant Age notes where your child started in the app and then over time, tracks their progress as they pass specific milestones. Each time they pass a milestone, the system recalculates their Elephant Age based on the five most advanced milestones they've passed. In the same way that it is hard to see how much taller your child is growing on a daily basis but easy for friends and grandparents to see it between visits, the Elephant Age is less important as a daily measure of progress and more important to show trends over several weeks or months.
The Overview tab is the first tab on the dashboard. It contains a variety of useful information about your student's current subjects.
On our Dashboard, underneath the Elephant Age graph, we track and share your child's Active Curriculum. These are the subjects and concepts that your student is actively working on and they indicate what percentage of the subject has been completed thus far.
If you click on any of these individual subjects, the topic expands to show playtime statistics for that specific subject, as well as an explanation of the specific concepts that we are teaching within that subject.
Underneath the Active Curriculum section, we highlight the milestones within the subject and what percentage your student has completed. As your child nears the end of a subject, you’ll be able to see that the Elephant Age is about to change. If you click on a milestone, we provide very detailed information about that specific learning milestone.
For each milestone, there are several sections including:
You can see the specific topics your student is working on and if you desire, you can click on the topic to try some sample questions. Rest assured that this will not impact your student’s scores or results.
If we have reason to believe your student is struggling with any particular topic, we will specifically indicate it in this part of the Dashboard.
If you want to help your student practice, we offer suggestions for activities you can do with them outside of the app to further support their learning.
On the left side of the dashboard, next to each milestone you can see playtime analysis for your student. The statistics show their total playtime on that subject, their average playtime per session, how many questions they passed, and how many questions they attempted.
The Elephant Learning Dashboard allows you to monitor your student’s progress from a high level, diving into specific details as you desire.
The Playtime Analysis tab is the second tab on the dashboard. It helps you understand how your child’s playtime compares to our overall recommendations. The dark blue line indicates the recommended 30 minutes of app use per week, so you can compare your child's usage against that recommendation. We also track ongoing playtime statistics so you can see how your child is progressing from week to week.
