The Parent Dashboard allows you to view your child's progress, edit their details and manage your subscription.
You can log in to the Parent Dashboard by using the login details you created when you signed up.
When you first log in, you'll be presented with the homepage. On the left-hand side of the screen you'll see Notifications. This box contains the latest news from Doodle and your child's achievements and activity across the Doodle programmes.
On the right-hand side you'll see an overview of your child's progress in the Top Doodlers box. Press on Targets or Stars to see if your child is on track to reach their weekly target (the number of stars Doodle has challenged them to earn) and how many stars they've earned over the last 7 days.
Click on the subject icons in the top right-hand corner to view this information for each Doodle programme.
Along the very top, on the right hand side you will see My Account. Here you can view all subscription and payment information, as well as updating your parent and child details.
Here you can update your parent details, including name and address and you can change your existing password. Press Update to ensure that all changes are saved.
Within this section, you can view all children linked to your parent account. Click on their name on the left hand side to make any changes include updating name, username, password, DOB and school. Press Update to ensure that all changes are saved.
You can also add additional child accounts by clicking on Create an account for my child or link your child’s school account to your parent account by clicking on Add my Child’s school account.
If you no longer require a child’s account, you can Delete it here too. Be sure to cancel your subscription before deleting. Once an account has been deleted, it cannot be retrieved.
Here you can view details about your subscription, including the subscription type (home or school), the purchase store (website, Apple, Google, Android) and when your next payment is due. This will allow you to keep track of any subscriptions you may have and cancel them if necessary.
Upgrading to full access with a Doodle subscription
To upgrade a child to full access, ensure the child’s name is selected and highlighted in yellow on the left hand side. Then, press on the red Get home subscription.
*Please note, DoodleMaths and DoodleEnglish subscriptions are separate subscriptions.*
You'll then be able to select a Monthly or Annual subscription. For more information about pricing, please see this article.
Within Billing, you can view the card(s) linked to your account, update any payment details, add or remove cards and set a default payment card.
Analyse lets you view a wealth of information to let you see your child's progress.
Effort lets you see how often your child has been using Doodle, how many stars they've earned and whether they've met their weekly target set by Doodle.
You can choose the time period you'd like to view their Doodling over and use the subject icons to toggle between the Doodle programmes.
The table shows how many stars your child earned and whether they met their target over the selected time period.
The horizontal line represents their target (the number of stars Doodle challenged them to earn over the chosen time period), while the blue bars represent the number of stars they earned each day. You can also hover over a bar to view the number of stars they earned on a particular day and their streak.
Understanding lets you see your child's level of understanding of each year group's curriculum content and identify any gaps in their knowledge.
The table shows how well your child understands each year group's curriculum content. If your child is older than five, you can view their understanding of national curriculum age-related expectations (AREs) in each year group by clicking the arrow icon next to a year group.
The traffic light system represents their level of understanding for each year group and ARE.
If you feel your child would benefit from extra practise in a particular area, click on the arrow to the left of the ARE to expand that topic, then click on the add sign to add it as an Extra to your child's work programme.
If your child has completed a baseline assessment, you can press on it to compare it against their current level understanding.
Progress lets you view your child's progress in the Doodle programmes and set a goal for them.
You can select the timeframe you'd like to view your child's progress over in the top-right hand corner and whether you'd like to view changes in their DoodleAge or the % of End of Year Objectives they've covered.
The chart shows how your child's DoodleAge or the % of EoY objectives they've covered have changed over the selected time period. You can click on a bar to gain a more in-depth insight into their progress for that particular day.
You can also set your child a goal to help them reach key learning milestones, such as increasing their DoodleAge by one year. Goals are a great way to help your child progress if they need a little more support in their learning. To do this, click on the blue button in the box called Goals.
You can set extra work in any topic of the curriculum you'd like your child to practice, which are known as Extras.
Extras are a great way to supplement your child's learning and build their understanding of topics they feel less confident about.
You can add an Extra into your child's work programme by clicking on Assign.
Hover over Extras and select Assign
Toggle between the programme icons to select whether you'd like to set an Extra in DoodleMaths, DoodleTables, DoodleEnglish and DoodleSpell. Please view this article for more information.
Search for a topic or scroll through the relevant AREs (Age Related Expectations or topics they are expected to learn at this age)
Click on an ARE title to view the available lessons and press the plus icon next to the lesson of your choice
Select when you'd like the Extra to appear in their work programme and press Add
The Extra will appear in their work programme as an Extra icon in the Learning Zone on the specified day
Use Analyse to view how well your children have done on any Extras assigned to them in the last four weeks.
Hover over Extras and select Analyse
You'll see an overview of the Extras which have been added for your child. From here, you can see if they completed each Extra and how well they preformed by hovering over the circle.
To see how your child scored for specific questions in the Extra, click on the title of the Extra
You can also delete assigned extras from here by clicking on Remove all.
