From the Parent Dashboard, you can monitor the progress your child is making within all of the Doodle programmes.
By heading to Analyse > Progress you will be able to view your child’s progress against the percentage of end of year objectives (EoY objectives) they’ve covered for each year group.
On the graph that appears you can see how your child is progressing through the content for the different year groups, whether they are on track to meet their target and how they are doing compared to other children born in the same year and month.
You can select to view this data for each of the children linked to your parent account by clicking on their name. You can adjust the timespan shown on the graph by using the drop down box next to Time.
The blue line that appears shows your child's progress according to the percentage of end of year objectives that they have covered so far.
As an example, this child has currently covered approximately 70% of Year 6 objectives.
If you see a drop, it is due to a baseline assessment being completed. A drop is not a bad thing! The reason for the drop is that, after completing the baseline assessment, the algorithm feels that the child needs to consolidate their learning on a few topics to ensure that these areas are really embedded before moving the child on, resulting in a stronger foundation to build their learning upon.
The yellow line that appears on the graph shows your child’s goal, if you have set one for them. You can toggle this on or off by ticking or unticking the box at the top:
Setting a goal is a great way to support your child if they need a little more support in their learning, or to provide an extra challenge! If you have not set a goal for your child and would like to, or would like to change the goal for your child, you can do this by scrolling down to Goals and clicking on Set a new Goal. You will then need to enter a goal end date and select a goal from the list. You will see the target number of stars required each week to achieve that goal. Sometimes it helps to try a few different end dates as this will bring up different goals that are both challenging and achievable. When you have found a goal you are happy with select it and then tap save. For more information on Goals and Targets, please see here.
You can also view your child’s progress according to their DoodleAge by using the drop down box next to Measure.
DoodleAge is a measure of your child's progress through the curriculum content within Doodle. Each concept equates to a DoodleAge. For more information on DoodleAge, please see here.
The dotted green lines on the graph show percentiles. Percentiles show how your child's progress compares to other children using Doodle who are born in the same month and year. You can toggle percentiles view on or off by ticking the box at the top of the page.
The key for the lines can be viewed on the left hand side of the page (and also below):
By using percentiles, you can view your child’s progress according to their percentiles which allows you to track the progress they are expected to make.
If your child’s progress is tracking on the 90th percentile line, they're performing better than 90% of children of their age.
If it was on the 50th percentile, they’d be exactly average for maths for their age group.
And if it was on the 25th percentile, they would be doing better than 25% of learners their age.
More information on percentiles, how it works and how you can use this when monitoring your child’s progress can be found here.
As with all pages in the Parent Dashboard you can switch between the programmes by tapping on the different subject icons here. This will allow you to view data for each individual subject.
If you’d like to analyse the content your child has been covering and their understanding of that content, head to Analyse > Understanding.
