  • The great thing about Khan Academy is that both teacher and parents can register as coaches for a united front in student learning
  • Khan Academy Knowledge Map covers the scope of knowledge from basic mathematics to high school level math, Algebra, Calculus and some college level math. Students click on the “Do Exercises” button to begin working on problems within the Knowledge Map
  • The Knowledge Map is designed to supply students with an infinite number of problem until they have successfully solved 10 problems in a row
  • Scratch pad
  • If the student needs help solving a problem they can click on the Hint button to review the steps necessary to solve the problem
  • Every student can learn at their own pace. If student is having problems mastering a problem they can watch a video for help or get a hint.
  • The Knowledge Map works in a game like framework. Students earn energy point for amount of effort put in to solving problems.
  • Badges are used to motivate students to demonstrate positive learning traits. The easiest badge is the meteorite with the black hole badge being the most difficult to earn.
  • Dark blue represents minutes spent watching videos. Teal represents minutes spent solving exercises.
  • Hover over a bar in the graph for detailed information regarding videos, exercises, achievements and proficiencies.
  • You can view student activity in four methods: Today, Yesterday, Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days
  • Focus reports are a read of what the student has been up to.
  • The outer circle represents the mix of exercises the student has worked on. The inner circle represents the mix of videos the student has watched.
  • You can click on one of these colored rings to see each problem the student attempted for even more granular detail.
  • Here you can see all of the problems the student has done.
  • Red means wrong…Blue means right. We can see here that the student got problem 55 wrong. They then watched a video and got some hints. The height of the bar indicates how long it took them to do the exercise.
  • You can clearly see the process the student went through to learn the concept until they were able to get ten problem correct in a row. Within this report you can even click on a bar to see the exact problem that the student attempted to solve.
  • Exercise Progress shows the student/coach which exercises the student worked on and completed. It’s another way of looking at the Knowledge Map.
  • Green means a student is proficient in it.
  • Blue means the student is working on it but everything seems to be ok.
  • Red means they are working on it but they are probably stuck and this is the perfect time for some one on one teacher assistance.
  • Exercise Progress Reports show a count of how many exercises the student has completed over time.
  • Scroll over the dots to see which module was completed on what dates.
  • Teachers can get live data on their classes with this report.
  • Each bar represents a different student, where and what they are working on within the Knowledge Map. Light blue shows what they worked on in the classroom and the dark blue represents what they worked on at home.
  • Click on Student Progress Report to see a student dashboard that show where every student is in the class.
  • Green means the student is already proficient in the concept on the Knowledge Map. Blue means they are working on it but no cause for concern. And red means they are probably stuck. The paradigm for the teacher is to intervene only when the student is stuck. The teacher can pull aside the students who need assistance and provide direct instruction only when needed. You could also pair up a student who is already proficient with the student who is struggling for peer tutoring.
  • Do be aware that the Knowledge Map and accompanying reports only cover the area of Mathematics. But Khan Academy provides resources for other subject areas as well.
