In this guide, we’ll look at some of the student performance data that’s available to you on Atomi and how you can use it in your teaching. Let’s dive in!
Where do I find my student’s performance data?
As your students complete lessons on Atomi you’ll be able to see a completion summary next to each lesson. By clicking into this summary you can expand this to the full detail view.
What data is available?
At the top of each performance report, you’ll see how many students have completed the task, how many need to revise, and how your class’s marks compare to the rest of your school and the state. This will help you understand at-a-glance how your class is performing relative to key benchmarks.
To make it easy to see who’s doing well and who needs help, we break down this data for each of your students.
Whenever a student completes a quiz on Atomi, we calculate their marks, which is the number of questions that they got right divided by the number of questions they faced, including any repeated questions.
Marks are a decent indicator for how well a student understands the content at that point in time, however we all know that as time goes by they’ll start to forget. So what we do here at Atomi is use Artificial Intelligence to predict how each student’s marks will change over time.
Essentially, we're predicting what each student’s marks would be if we gave them that quiz again at some point in the future. We call this predicted mark ‘strength’ and it’s displayed graphically using this little strength icon:
Generally speaking the more they practice and the better their marks become, the longer it will take for their strength to decay.
How can I use this data to personalise my classroom?
By understanding the subtle difference between marks and strength it can help you understand how your class is tracking on each topic and identify exactly what kind of help each student might need.
For example, students with low marks might be having trouble understanding the topic. For these students you could run a masterclass or speak with them individually to address specific issues in their understanding.
On the other hand, students that need to revise might just need to cover the topic again in order to make sure it’s retained in their long term memory. Understanding the data can give you the ability to see these differences.
Hopefully this gets you excited about how you could use data to diagnose issues and push your students to the next level. The possibilities are endless! To learn more about how teachers are using data in their classrooms, reach out to our team.
