Providing visibility on your child's progress, so that you can give them the help and support they need, is the fundamental mission of Team EdPlace. One of the huge benefits of using an online learning tool is that every element of student performance is tracked, measured and recorded so that you can clearly see your child improving, plus use our insights to inform when they need more help.
Before we get started, you will need to login to your parent account on our website at www.edplace.com/parent or using our parent iOS or Android app.
On your parent dashboard homepage on our website or apps, you can see an ‘at a glance’ snapshot of each child's progress who is linked to your parent account, with a listing of the number of completed and assigned activities, plus their current average score, key settings and rewards:
If you have more than one child, you can scroll down to see each one on the website or toggle between them in the top border on the app.
Please note, that you can click on any the buttons next to these numbers on the website only to hot-link quickly to more detailed information. So, for example, if I was to click on the 'View assigned' button for Eddie 1, I could see a full list of the activities currently assigned to him so I could amend as needed.
To see the most detailed level of analytics, click on 'Scores' in the left-hand menu of your dashboard on the website, or the 'Progress' icon in the bottom border of the apps. You will be directed to an overview page for the first child linked to your account (if you have more than one) which will look like a variation of this:
If you have more than one child, you need to make sure that the name shown in the dropdown list at the top on the webpage matches the child whose data you wish to review. On the app, you can toggle between the different children linked to your account using the names shown in the dark blue, top border.
Please note, only on the apps we also offer an option to filter dates. These options are located in the upper centre, just under the dark blue border. In the view above, it is showing the default date range of 'last 7 days'.
In this general overview page, you will also see a summary of the student's best performing topic areas and those requiring more attention which you can use to assign work if you choose:
Clicking on any one of the subject titles will redirect to an overview for that specific subject:
Please note, this option is only available on the parent account via our website.
Clicking on one of the topic titles in this view will also show you how many activities have been completed in this given area.
We also offer a weekly progress report which is sent directly to you via email. If you have opted to receive this, you will see this option turned ON in your 'Notifications' tab:
Please note, this option is only visible or editable on the parent account via our website.
If you have selected the option to receive a weekly progress report on your child, this will be sent to you every Friday when your child has completed a minimum of 5 activities in the last 7 days. This report will summarise your child's total activities completed this week, and whether this is up or down on the previous week. It will also show you their current average scores for each subject and whether their overall average has increased or decreased from last week. Finally, it will let you know their top-performing topic of the week (highest scoring) and the one which they found most challenging (lowest scoring). If you don't have the time to log in to your parent account on a regular basis, this report will give you all the key info you need to stay informed about how your child is getting on!
You can use all of this data to understand how your child is getting on, where they need more support, and give them a huge "Well done!" for all their achievements. You may find it particularly helpful to assign and complete benchmark assessments at regular intervals (e.g. every half term or term) to be able to see progress over a given period even more clearly.
