The New Parent Dashboard
These changes are now live!
We're going to be updating our site throughout the summer holidays to improve the experience for all users, and make Tassomai a more effective tool. As we release these updates, we'll be explaining how and why they work on our blog, and have linked the existing articles at the bottom of this post.
We've added a new parent dashboard to help parents keep track of how well their children are using Tassomai. We've also removed the coloured stripe which parents used to see - this was a representation of your child's wheel, so it is no longer relevant.
There are three different views in this dashboard, all of which are explained here.
All of the columns are drag and drop, so you can rearrange the data into the order you want. We have also colour coded the most important columns, to help you see how well your child is doing - if all of these columns are green and blue then there's nothing to worry about!
Each of the different tabs can also be exported as a csv file by pressing "download data" on the top right.
There's an overview of each different tab below, and, although most of the data shown is pretty self-explanatory, some of it does require a bit of extra explanation.
The Usage Tab
The usage view displays five pieces of data:
- Accuracy over the last week;
- Daily Goals completed in the last week;
- Days since last login
- Questions answered in the last week
- Time spent on Tassomai in the last week
"Days since last login" only counts days on which your child has answered a question - if they login without answering a question, then this will not count as logging in.
"Time spent" is based on active time spent answering questions - if your child simply leaves the app or site open then this won't count. Although we have tried to make this as accurate as possible, it is unfortunately impossible for this to be fully representative since we cannot measure "thinking time". It should, however, be a close approximation.
While completing Daily Goals is the most important to check on, we'd also recommend you keep an eye on your child's accuracy - if this is low it could mean that they are guessing or don't understand the material. In this situation encourage them to take their time, write down questions which they don't understand, check their textbook and maybe even ask their teacher for help.
The Performance Tab
Now that students should focus on Daily Goals, progress is no longer as central to Tassomai, but it can now be found in the Performance tab, which displays:
- Questions correct in the last week;
- Progress gained in the last week;
- Total progress;
- Predicted final progress;
"Predicted progress" is how much of the course we think your child will complete based on their activity over the last 30 days. If they aren't doing much, then this number will drop. It should be noted that this is a lagging metric - it will only show when a student has already begun to fall behind, and will take a few days of good usage to turn around.
The All Data Tab
This is simply the Usage Tab and Performance Tab combined so that you can see all the data together.
How to log in to your account:
If you're a private subscriber you'll have set up an account already.
If you are a parent whose child has Tassomai through their school and you're receiving progress reports by email, go to www.tassomai.com/login and request a password reset for that email address.
If you do not receive parent reports you can ask your child's school to contact our admin team to get this up and running.
If you have any feedback on these updates please just get in touch - we'd love to know what you think!
