The Student Data dashboard: exploring the Curriculum grid

The curriculum grid, as it’s name  indicates, organises the diagnosed student data on two axis:

  • one for the Maths Curriculum Strands ‘Number and Algebra’, ‘Measurement and Geometry’, ‘Statistics and Probability’ and each of their substrands 
  • and the other for the curriculum levels (Levels 1 to 10A or Stages 1 to 5.3)

The curriculum grid provides a visual representation of what each student knows and doesn’t know within each level of each substrand based on expected curriculum outcomes.

Within each box the different colours show you how much of the content is mastered (gold) and what portions still need to be learned (blue).

You can go deeper into the data by clicking on any of the coloured boxes to find the learning statements that have made up the mastered or not yet mastered shading for that section.

You can also view more specific level information around their progress in different areas of the curriculum via the Student level widget. This allows you to see each individual student’s overall level, as well as their level within each curriculum Strand and Substrand.

The student level widget allows you to check overall level, as well as their level within each curriculum Strand and Substrand.

Three ideas on how you can use these reports:

  1. Plan targeted intervention, you will be able to identify areas where students need your help to make progress or learn new concepts
  2. Spot opportunities for extension. You probably already know that Sam and Ann were flying through the work – spot which areas and concepts that may present the right challenge to keep them engaged
  3. Triangulate with other reports. Use the information in these reports alongside your other data to inform parent-teacher interview, or to help you with reporting
