# Student Progress and Performance Indicators

Splash Math measures student progress across multiple indicators to accurately determine the progress of each child on Splash Math.

__A) Grade Level__

- Splash Score for the Grade
- Time spent on Splash Math (Total, By date)
- Number of Problems Attempted
- Number of Correct Answers
- Number of Skills Mastered in the Grade

The following progress metrics are calculated for each grade level. For example - A student will have separate splash scores for his/her progress in Grade 2 and Grade 3 curriculum.

__B) Topic and Skill Level__

- Topic Progress
- Skill Progress
- Skill Performance
- Skill Accuracy
- Skill Time Spent

**A.1 Splash Score**

Splash Score of a student indicates the overall math proficiency level of the child in a grade. It includes the percentage of skills covered from the grade, completion in each skill, accuracy among other factors. Splash Math ranges from 0 (min) to 100 (max).

**A.2 Time Spent on Splash Math**

Time Spent includes the total time spent by a child in answering math problems in Splash Math. This time *does not include* the time spent in playing games. Splash Math provides the total time spent as well as the distribution by skill and date.

This metrics gives teachers get a good indicator of when and how much time each student has spent working on his/her math skills.

**A.3 Number of Problems Attempted**

This indicates the total number of problems answered by a student in a Grade Level. This includes both the correct answers as well as wrong answers.

**A.4 Number of Correct Answers**

This indicates the total number of correctly answered problems by a student in a Grade Level. This metric, when seen with Number of Problems Attempted, gives the accuracy of the child in Splash Math.

**A.5 Number of Skills Mastered**

This indicates the total number of skills mastered out of the total available math skills in the grade. Also, the progress report would indicate the distribution of skills by the level of proficiency in the skills. The five proficiency levels are:

- Not Started
*- Skill has not been attempted yet by the student.* - Mastered
*- Student has achieved 100% proficiency in the skill* - Satisfactory
*- Student has cleared all problem types within a skill but needs to do more practice to achieve mastery.* - Needs More Practice
*- Student has not attempted enough problems in the skill. The students needs to attempt more problems for our algorithm to assess performance.* - Needs Improvement
*- The accuracy is low in the skill and student might have trouble spots which need to be resolved.*

**B.1 Progress in a Topic**

Splash Math includes several topics in each grade-level. Overall progress in each topic is indicated with a progress bar which ranges from 0% (min) to 100% (max). The progress in a topic is an average of the progress of the student in each skill within the topic.

For example, let's assume that a topic has 5 skills. The student has achieved 80% progress in one skill and has not started the other four skills. The progress of the topic would be: [(80% + 0% + 0% + 0% + 0%)/(5)] = 16%

**B.2 Progress in a Skill**

Splash Math includes several types of problems within each skill. The problem types are defined by our curriculum experts on the basis of varying strategies and difficulty levels involved in achieving proficiency in the skill. The progress in the skill is assigned by our algorithm and indicates the level of proficiency achieved in the skill.

Overall progress in each skill is indicated with a circular progress bar which ranges from 0% (min) to 100% (max).

**B.3 Performance in a Skill (Skill Status)**

One of the five proficiency levels below are assigned for each skill based on the student's performance:

- Not Started
*- Skill has not been attempted yet by the student.* - Mastered
*- Student has achieved 100% proficiency in the skill* - Satisfactory
*- Student has cleared all problem types within a skill but needs to do more practice to achieve mastery.* - Needs More Practice
*- Student has not attempted enough problems in the skill. The students need to attempt more problems for our algorithm to assess performance.* - Needs Improvement
*- The accuracy is low in the skill and student might have trouble spots which need to be resolved.*

**B.4 Accuracy in a Skill**

The detailed progress report in the teacher dashboard indicates the correct answers by total problems attempted count for each skill. This is illustrated in the screenshot above.

**B.5 Time Spent in a Skill**

The detailed progress report in the teacher dashboard also indicates the total time spent on answering problems in each skill.
