Instant Stats Ticker & Class Live Monitor

Have you seen the new “Class Live Monitor” in your Stride account?  Check out this new feature to get instant stats on your students while they’re using Stride!

Instant Stats

Ticker 1

In your teacher portal, you can view the Realtime Stats ticker at the top of your Dashboard.  At a glance, you know how many students are logged in and on-task.  Click on “Realtime Stats” to dig deeper.

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!

Brilliant Elementary School

The students at Brilliant Elementary School in Brilliant, Alabama, are all Monumental Achievers!!  Over the past year, their 173 Stride-using students answered 434,478 questions.  That’s an average of approximately 2,511 questions per student!

Brilliant Elementary’s principal, Mr. McCauley, is extremely supportive of his teachers and staff and makes sure they have the tools they need to succeed.  In fact, he planned a training weeks before the school’s in-service date to ensure his staff was well prepared.  He also makes sure all classes have scheduled time for Stride each week.  This kind of dedication from Principal McCauley and all of the teachers and staff at Brilliant is what allows Brilliant Elementary to be a #MonumentalAchiever!

How do you get your teachers and students excited about Stride?  Do you use contests to drive results? Do you incentivize classes with more computer lab time, pizza parties, or other rewards?  We want to hear from you!
