Class Live Monitor

Ticker 2

As you investigate further, you can view information regarding:
-Who is currently online/offline in Stride?
-How long have they been working in their current session?
-How many items have they answered?
-How many items have they answered correctly?
-When did they answer their last item, and how long have they been idle?
-What game did they play most recently?
-What subject are they working in?

Student Session Live Monitor

Ticker 4

Meanwhile, a new real-time ticker in the Stride student interface helps each student stay accountable and on-task! As they answer questions correctly or incorrectly, they will see their number and percentage correct automatically adjust. They can also begin to see correlation between their pace (questions per minute) and their percentage correct –- discouraging them from guessing.

Ticker 3

Be sure your teachers, staff and students are aware of these new instant progress monitoring tools, and send us some feedback on how YOU are utilizing the new Class Live Monitor in your classroom!
