Adaptive Keyboarding

Adaptive Keyboarding Teacher Dashboard and Reports

Your Adaptive Keyboarding dashboard provides refined class and student-specific data that documents practice time and progress as it’s completed. Within this dashboard you’ll have all the information and resources you’ll need to successfully use the intuitive keyboarding program in your classroom.

To navigate to your Adaptive Keyboarding Teacher Dashboard, open the class you’ve assigned Adaptive Keyboarding to, select either ‘The Great Keyboarding Adventure’ or ‘Urban Keyboarding Explorer’ in the class assignment list, and then click the ‘View’ button beneath the program description:

***Please note that if you access Adaptive Keyboarding through the Library instead of through a class, you will not be able to see specific class data.

 

Class Statistics

The ‘Class’ tab in your dashboard shows class statistics at a glance using three bar graphs. You’ll see your students’ average accuracy rates, average words per minute (WPM), and the average amount of time each student has spent actively typing, in addition to the total amount of time the entire class has spent actively typing during the date range selected:

‘Average Accuracy’ proficiency rates are based on the set target goal with a + or – 2.5% leniency.‘Average WPM’ proficiency is based on the set target goal with a + or – 5% leniency.

For elementary school students, ‘proficient’ means having a 90% accuracy rate and 15 WPM or as otherwise specified within the ‘Settings’ tab.

For middle school students, ‘proficient’ means having a 90% accuracy rate and 25 WPM or as otherwise specified within the class ‘Settings’ tab.

‘Average Minutes of Practice by Student’ proficiency is based on a goal of 10-15 minutes of practice per student, 2-3 times per week.

 

Individual Student Statistics

The ‘Student’ tab gives you a focused look at how individual students are progressing in Adaptive Keyboarding.

 

You’re able to adjust the date range to focus on a specific student’s average WPM and accuracy rate, the number of exercises completed, average amount of time spent working on exercises, number of days used, and total time spent actively typing during that selected date range:

You also have access to two bar graphs that show the dates within the selected date range that the student earned specific WPM and accuracy rates. If you hover over a bar in the graph, you’ll see the specific WPM or accuracy rate earned on that date.

You can also view your student’s accuracy rates by the specific uppercase and lowercase keys typed:

Additionally, you’ll see Formative Assessment statistics for each time your student completed a Formative Assessment during the selected date range:

 

 Reports

Within the reports tab, you have the option of exporting a raw data report for the entire class or downloading an individual student report.

The class raw data report will export as a spreadsheet to show the following:

‘Adaptive Keyboarding Raw Data Report’ key:

Grade: The grade indicated is pulled from the teacher’s class settings within Adaptive Keyboarding, not from the Learning.com student data. The grade in ‘Great Keyboarding Adventure’ is preset to grade 4 and in ‘Urban Keyboarding Explorer’ to grade 7. Grades can be adjusted from the Adaptive Keyboarding Teacher Dashboard through the ‘Settings’ tab.

Total Time (Min): This is the total amount of time (in minutes) a student has spent actively typing in Adaptive Keyboarding during the selected date range.

Total Exercises Completed: This number represents all the Adaptive Keyboarding challenges completed by the student (including Zone Challenge, Muscle Memory, Word Challenge, Story Challenges, and Formative Assessment exercises).

Unique Exercises Completed: This number represents the Adaptive Keyboarding challenges that were prescribed to that specific student based on his or her Formative Assessment results. These challenges include: Zone Challenge, Muscle Memory, and Word Challenge.

Initial WPM: This score represents the words per minute typed by the student in his or her first Formative Assessment completed within the selected date range. If this cell is blank, it means the student has not completed a Formative Assessment during the date range selected.

Recent WPM: This score represents the words per minute typed by the student in the most recent Formative Assessment completed during the selected date range. If this cell is blank, it means that the student did not complete a second Formative Assessment during this date range.

Initial Accuracy: This score represents the percentage of keystrokes the student typed accurately when taking his or her first Formative Assessment during the selected date range. If this cell is blank, it means the student has not completed a Formative Assessment during the date range selected.

Recent Accuracy: This score represents the percentage of keystrokes the student typed accurately when taking a secondary Formative Assessment during this date range. If this cell is blank, it means the student has not completed a second Formative Assessment during the date range selected.

WPM Change: This percentage shows the change in the amount of words per minute typed by the student between the first and second Formative Assessment completed during the selected date range.

Accuracy Change: This percentage shows the change in the student’s accuracy rate between the first and second Formative Assessments completed during the selected date range.

 

The individual student data report pulls much of the same information that is available in the student statistics tab and exports that information as a printable PDF. The information pulled in this report is what the student has completed during the date range selected.

 

Included in this report is ‘Performance by Exercise Type.’ This shows the student’s average WPM and accuracy rate broken down by the specific exercises within Adaptive Keyboarding, as well as how long the student spent in these exercises during the date range selected.

 

Adaptive Keyboarding Class Settings

Within your ‘Settings’ tab you can customize your Adaptive Keyboarding class settings to meet the needs of your students. Set target goals for your class, specify how many minutes students must actively type to earn game time, set a Formative Assessment time limit, and indicate the grade level of your class (specifying the grade level will affect the vocabulary used in Word and Zone Challenge exercises); grade levels are preset to grade 4 in ‘Great Keyboarding Explorer’ and grade 7 in ‘Urban Keyboarding Explorer’ and will display accordingly in Adaptive Keyboarding reports unless changed.

Recommended Formative Assessment Time Limit by Grade:

Grades 3-5: It is recommended that students spend 1-3 minutes on the Great Keyboarding Adventure Formative Assessments. The Great Keyboarding Adventure assessment contains 76 words.

Grades 6-8: It is recommended that students spend 3-5 minutes on the Urban Keyboarding Explorer Formative Assessments. The Urban Keyboarding Explorer assessment contains 110 words.

 

Changes made in the ‘Settings’ tab automatically save and are indicated in the upper right-hand corner of the settings screen.

These same settings can be set for individual students within the ‘Students’ settings tab.

*** Please note that these settings only affect your class within Adaptive Keyboarding and do not transfer over to your class in Learning.com or any other platform.

 

Resources

Your ‘Resources’ tab hosts a variety of different educational resources for you to utilize to ensure that you get the most out of using Adaptive Keyboarding with your class. These resources include an ergonomics chart, keyboarding goals by grade, a letter to explain Adaptive Keyboarding to caregivers at home, implementation tips, and more! All resources are downloadable to save on your desktop, print, and share.

 

Student Mode

If you’re interested in what the student experience is like in Adaptive Keyboarding. Click the ‘Student Mode’ tab. Here you’ll be able to run through typing challenges, view the student dashboard, earn game time, adjust settings, and more!

If your students are driven by competition, we encourage you to play the ‘Beat the Teach!’ game with your students to see if they can score a higher accuracy and WPM than their teacher.

Your typing progress will save within ‘Student Mode’ in your coordinator account, but won’t affect your reporting.
