How do I use the People tool?

The People tool gives you at-a-glance access to tons of student data points in one simple table that you can use to track student progress and provide help where it’s needed.

Navigate to the People tab using the Main Menu.

From this page one can:

  1. Filter results by grading period if enabled.
  2. Use Display Options to choose what information to display.
  3. Email students and observers.
  4. Filter your students using the funnel (filter) icon.
  5. Add students to the Clipboard.
  6. Open the Clipboard.

Filter your students

 Click the funnel (filter) icon to show/hide a menu that allows you to filter by:

  1. Student name
  2. Quick list or group of students
  3. Minimum score and maximum score
  4. Minimum progress and maximum progress
  5. Critical students, meaning students who have failed two of their last five submissions or they are failing the course, and/or have 30% or more of gradable items past due.

Student Data

Within the people tool, one can see:

  1. How students are performing against each learning out come.
  2. Students' current course score.
  3. Course Progress (percentage of course material completed).

Within the people tool, one can see students' self-assessments.

Within any course students have the option to self-assess on three categories: understanding, interest, and effort.

  • Understanding
    • Red = Lost
    • Yellow = OK
    • Green = Competent
    • Blue = Expert
  • Interest
    • Red = Bored
    • Yellow = OK
    • Green = Interested
    • Blue = Very Interested
  • Effort
    • Red = Slacking
    • Yellow = OK
    • Green = Trying
    • Blue = 100%

 

 

Performance and Pace Indicators

For each course, the People tool provides color coded "dots" that indicate student performance and pace. Below is the color key for each.

Performance
This uses a student's overall course score and the student's performance on the five most recent activities to assess how well the student is performing in the course.Echo displays a green, yellow, or red indicator to represent the assessment:

  • Green - The student's overall score is within the top 75% of passing scores, and none of the students five most recent activities received a below passing score.
  • Yellow - The student's overall score is within the bottom 25% of passing scores, and/or the student has a below passing score on one of the five most recent activities.
  • Red - The student's overall score is below the passing threshold, and/or the student has a below passing score on two or more of the five most recent activities.

 

Pace
This uses the percentage a student's past due activities to assess how well the student is keeping up in the course. Echo displays a green, yellow, or red indicator to represent the assessment:

  • Green - Less than 15% of activities are past due.
  • Yellow - Between 15% and 30% of activities are past due.
