The Skills view gives students greater visibility and ownership of their own learning by grouping related skills, and providing a clear path for the development of understanding across grade levels.
Student results from their check-ins for their selected ‘Learning Focus’ will generate the recommended practice tasks on their Dashboard. This allows students to view work across multiple grade levels within the single substrand/ sub-domain, ensuring personalized practice is aligned with classwork.
What is a Learning Focus?
A ‘Learning Focus’ is a group of related skills (sub-strand/sub-domain) from the curriculum that provides focus and a clear sequence for the development of understanding across year levels. It will highlight progress within the group of skills and recommended practice tasks on the student dashboard.
Mathspace will recommend a learning focus when work is completed for a new concept, in the form of:
An assigned task
A self-directed task
A skills check-in
A student’s learning focus can be changed by:
Selecting ‘Yes, change’ for a recommended learning focus
Navigating to a new learning focus via the Skills map and selecting the flag to ‘Make this my learning focus’
The available learning focuses on the Skills map are dependant on the year level that student’s have selected.
