Empowering students to use EdPlace outside and between tutoring sessions is a fantastic way to maximise their achievements in the time they spend in classes with you. Why not set an assessment for them to complete before a tutoring session? Or perhaps you could assign some follow-up work to ensure that your student has really understood a new concept which you introduced to them in their last session.
It is easy to track every one of your student's individual achievements on EdPlace, including those activities completed with you in tutoring sessions and those completed at home.
Log in to your account at www.edplace.com/teacher where all your students will be displayed on your homepage, organised by year group. Click on the '+' symbol next to the year group of the student whose activities you would like to review, and locate the number showing under the heading 'Completed':
You will then be directed into a full list of activities completed by this student over their entire time using EdPlace:
You can clearly see the date of completion visible (which you can link to being in or outside of one of their tutoring sessions), plus you can see their scores. If you click on any individual activity, you have the option to 'Review answers' to see exactly what your student inputted and where they were correct or incorrect:
If you click on the number under the heading 'Assigned', you will be able to see all currently assigned activities for this student. If any of these are no longer relevant, you can click on the 'X' next to any to remove them:

If you are planning to utilise EdPlace activities outside of your tutoring sessions, you may find our Badges and Rewards useful to motivate your students to learn more independently at home.
Badges and rewards will appear in your students' dashboard on the website and app to remind them what they can earn if they work hard and count down to a goal set by you or their parents:
Badges are automatically tracked and awarded by the EdPlace system to students. To find out more about these, please click here. Rewards can be set on an individual basis with the support of parents and/or students. To find out more about these, please click here.
If you can motivate students to brush up on their skills between your tutoring sessions and complete benchmarking work in advance, then you are able to concentrate on analysing their results and prioritising your teaching time together - just one more way that we hope using EdPlace will make your life as a tutor easier.
If you have any further questions about tracking usage, assigning work, badges or rewards, please contact our friendly Customer Support Team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
