Are you looking for immediate feedback on how your students are doing on a particular math topic? Look no further than our Skill Proficiency report, which makes it simple for you to assess your students’ understanding of any skill that they practice!
Many teachers, including our guest blogger Michael Stephens, use the report as a summative assessment tool. For example, you might set aside 15 minutes in class for a “mini quiz” on IXL, where students practice a particular skill they’ve been working on. You can use the report data garnered from the activity to identify those students who are ready to move on, and those who might benefit from re-teaching or review.
But did you know you can also use the Skill Proficiency report as a formative assessment tool? For example, if your second graders spent the last three days learning place value models up to hundreds, you might ask them to do twenty questions on place value models up to thousands on their own. You can then run the Skill Proficiency report not only to help you understand your students’ prior understanding of place values, but also to help you build a lesson plan for that next skill.
However you use it, IXL’s Skill Proficiency report offers real data you can act on, helping you drive instruction in your classroom!
