Feature Focus: Courseware Pacing, Progress, and Performance
Time management is one of the biggest keys to success in an online learning environment. To help you and your students make the most of your time, Courseware offers visibility to course progress and pacing data that is designed to give you and your students guidance toward course completion. Additionally, powerful and intuitive data views on individual students and group performance provide the insight you need to make instructional decisions that impact achievement.
Let’s take a deeper look:
From this dashboard, educators can quickly and easily get answers to questions such as:
- Which students are working behind pace?
- How many activities have been completed or are left to complete?
- How are students pacing against the course goals?
- What is a student’s overall course grade? What is a student’s current grade?
Edmentum defines pacing as the number of instructional activities completed within a defined period. Students are identified by one of four pacing statuses:
- Ahead of pace: the student completed at least one assignment ahead of current pace
- On pace: the student has completed the number of activities required at current pace
- Slightly off pace: the student is one or two activities behind the current pace
- Off pace: the student is three or more activities behind the current pace
The Student Pacing View is designed to give students visibility into their overall progress through a course, as well as their grades for a course, empowering them to be proactive decisionmakers when determining what to do next.
These views provide students and teachers alike with quick and easy access to monitoring performance that drive improved learning outcomes.
