Let’s take a look at the new MasteryConnect Tracker organization (Coming Soon!), and a few improved teacher workflows that make assessing students and accessing data even easier.
As of today, the majority of Tracker settings live in the blue menu button. You know the one—top of the Tracker, not very well organized. When you open it, you may spend time searching through menus to manage the parent or student portal, add standards, or export data.
We have taken the blue menu and organized it in a way that makes it easy to find what you are looking for. All the functionality will be housed in the new Tracker header, and some new features, like sorting by demographics (SIS connection required) will be available as well.
As we connected with teachers and asked them about how they interact with data in the Tracker, we identified three workflows that they use to easily assess students and access data.
Now you are able to add items and access the teacher item bank from the More Menu in the Tracker. This means you can look at data, then go directly to your item bank to draft a follow up item, and then create an assessment.
Sort by Mastery
One of the most powerful features of the Tracker is the ability to sort by mastery and quickly create intervention groups. When you click into a standard, you can easily sort by mastery on the most recently assessed column.
Tracker Level Reports
You may be using multiple Tracker level reports in your school or district, report cards, progress reports, custom reports, etc. Or maybe you just want to export all the data in your Tracker. Now all of your reporting options are organized in one central location that is accessible from anywhere in your Tracker.
These updates will be in your account for back to school 2021. We would love to hear your thoughts!
