When you or your student purchases an individual subscription or if your student is licensed through a school, students have the ability to practice a subject and monitor their progress on topics within that subject. As a parent or guardian, you can also log in to your student’s account to view their data within the course.

For students that purchased an individual subscription

Course Overview Data

The course overview data view allows you to view your student’s toughest and best topics in a particular subject area. You can also see how they are performing in particular units, topics, and subtopics within that subject. This allows you to easily prompt them to review topics that need additional practice.

In order to view your student’s course overview data, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your student’s Albert account (using their username and password)
  2. Click on ALBERT in the top left-hand corner
  3. Locate and select the class subject(s) from which you’d like to view their data
  4. Select View Analytics

Once you select View Analytics, you can adjust the start date and end date to see your child’s performance over a particular time frame. For example, if you want to see the topics they struggled on in quarter 2, you can adjust the date accordingly.

In the image below, you can see that this student, Harry Potter, is mastering Biological Bases of Memory (100% accuracy) but is struggling with Biases and Errors in Thinking (20% accuracy). Harry’s parent can prompt him to click on “Biases and Errors in Thinking” in order to practice questions in this topic to improve his accuracy. The toughest three topics are certainly a good indication of which topics your student needs to review.

Additionally, if you want to dive deeper into your student’s performance in a particular unit, you can scroll down to see their time spent, questions answered, average accuracy, and mastery levels for particular units and sub-topics. For example, you can see that Harry Potter is excelling in 1.5 Statistical Analysis in Psychology (86% accuracy), but may need to review 1.4 Selecting a Research Method (63% accuracy).

It’s interesting to note that Harry Potter has only spent 5 minutes on 1.4 Selecting a Research Method. Perhaps if you prompt your student to spend more time thinking about the question before submitting their answer, they can also improve.

Subject-Specific Overview Data

The subject-specific overview data allows you to view your student’s performance on topics within the subject guide, as well as questions they’ve gotten correct and incorrect when practicing.

In order to view their subject-specific overview data, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your student’s Albert account (using their username and password)
  2. Click on ALBERT at the top left
  3. Locate and select their class subject(s)
  4. Select Practice

Once you select and view your student’s subject, notice their current proficiency levels by reviewing the color-coded labels at the end of the topic titles. Click on the topic that your student is struggling with in order to review additional questions and help them improve their accuracy. In this case, it makes sense for Harry Potter to practice “1.4 Selecting a Research Method” in order to improve his grade and boost his proficiency level.

Once you select the topic, your student can practice questions within the subject that they are struggling with. They can return for another try on previously unanswered questions or attempt new questions to improve your understanding,

For students with a licensed purchased by their school

Parents or guardians of students at schools that have an Albert license can view their student's course overview data, subject-specific overview data, as well as their assignment level data.

However, they can only practice questions within the subject on their own if their teacher has enabled them to independently practice.

Assignment-Level Data

The assignment-level data is only accessible for students at licensed schools. This data view allows you to view your student’s overall performance and grade on specific assignments in their class, as well as the questions they got correct and incorrect within the assignment.

  1. Log in to your student’s Albert account (using their username and password)
  2. Choose the class you would like to view their data from and select View Class
  3. Locate their assignments and view their grades
  4. Click on the assignment that you wish to analyze further
  5. Select View Questions to see questions they got correct and incorrect

Once you view their assignment data, you review the questions within assignments that they have struggled with. As you are reviewing the questions with your student, read through the explanations for individual background information, and to see whether they selected an answer that was a distractor.

If you have questions while reviewing the assignment, reach out to your student’s teacher to let them know that your student may need additional support.
