We are really proud of our smart recommendations so let us tell you more about how they work.
When you set up a student account linked to your educator account, you are asked to specify the current school year of each student. We ask this so that we can assign them a set of relevant starter activities for their age. Based on their performance in these activities, we are able to get them started at the right level within the EdPlace activity library.
If your student has recommendations switched ON, we will continue to assign them activities (after these starter activities) which we think are a good fit for them based on their age and recent performance on EdPlace.
Another great feature of our recommendations is the reassign function. This means that we will automatically reassign an activity to your student if they are not able to achieve the required mastery score of 70% or above.
All activities which have been assigned by us (at EdPlace) to your student will be clearly identified in their student account under the 'Recommended by EdPlace' section of their 'To-Do' List:
Activities that have been assigned by you or those they have selected themselves will appear under 'Assigned to you', while any activities which have been started but not yet finished will appear under the heading 'In progress activities'.
If you would prefer to turn our recommendations OFF and only allow your student to attempt activities assigned directly to them, this is very easy too. Simply select 'Manage Students' in the left-hand menu of your dashboard, click on the '+' next to their Year or Group, find their name, and switch the button underneath the 'Recommendations' heading from ON to OFF:
Please note, if a student has previously had recommendations turned ON, you will need to delete any activities which have already been assigned to them. For more information on how to do this, please click here.
We hope that this tool will be a great option for you to consider and employ based on the individual needs of each of your students. If you have any more questions about our recommendations or need any other help at all, please contact our friendly Customer Support Team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
