A Better Way to Track Your Child’s Studying – WorksheetCloud Reports

by

The NEW WorksheetCloud Report Card helps YOU help your child better.

So many parents struggle when it comes to their child’s education. You are probably not a teacher. You might be a stay-at-home mom, a doctor, a receptionist, an entrepreneur or even a firefighter. But one thing’s for sure – you didn’t spend four years of your life studying to become a qualified, expert school teacher.

That’s perfectly OK. We cannot all be teachers.

But here’s the thing: as a parent you might not know how to identify problem areas (that are normally fixable!) with your child’s learning and studying. And that’s where WorksheetCloud will help you.

Here’s a helpful guide to help you better understand your child’s Report Card in WorksheetCloud …

Firstly, don’t be shocked when your child’s results fluctuate at first

When your child starts using WorksheetCloud for the first time, the results on their Report Card will definitely look a bit skewed.

For instance, if your child does only one worksheet or exam, and scores 100%, then their grade average will be 100%. Likewise, if they do only one worksheet or exam and score 5%, then their grade average will be represented as 5%.

In order to get a true reflection of your child’s current academic ability, we suggest that they complete at least 10 rounds of practice questions in each subject and across multiple different topics.

After a few weeks of using WorksheetCloud you’ll notice your child’s grade average start to normalise.

Levels and KP

To keep your child motivated to study, we’ve introduced Levels and Knowledge Points (KP).

This is really simple and works as follows …

Levels

Your child moves up levels by answering questions. The more questions they answer, whether right or wrong, the faster they move to the next level and unlock new badges.

For clarity, your child can level up whether they answer questions correctly and incorrectly. We reward your child for effort, not for being “clever” and getting all the answers correct.

Knowledge Points

Knowledge Points, or KP as they are referred to in WorksheetCloud, are the same as marks. In other words, if a question is worth 3 marks, then it is also worth 3 KP.

KP is what is used to rank your child on the Leaderboard each term. The higher your child’s KP, the higher their rank on the Leaderboard.

General Stats

This sections gives you a high-level overview of your child’s progress in WorksheetCloud.

There are 3 important items you should keep an eye on here …

Questions Answered

This indicates the total number of questions your child has answered in WorksheetCloud since the day they started using it. You’ll want your child to keep increasing this number on a weekly and consistent basis, because the more questions answered, the more prepared your child is for real class tests and school exams.

Total Time Learning

This indicates the total number of hours your child has spent using WorksheetCloud. It specifically tracks the amount of time spent in exercises like Study Notes, Questions and Exams. Just like with Questions Answered, you’ll also want your child to keep increasing their Total Time Learning on a weekly basis.

Needs To Improve

The subject listed here is the one in which your child is currently performing the poorest. You’ll also see the subject average. It’s up to you to decide if this poorest subject needs attention. Perhaps even although it’s your child’s poorest subject, they are scoring an average of 70% and you’re happy with that. Or perhaps they’re failing with 30% and need urgent help in this subject. The decision ultimately lies with you. We also recommend speaking to your child’s teacher for advice.

Subjects Graph

This is a fantastic, visual way for you to quickly see how your child is performing across each subject in WorksheetCloud.

The percentage shown for each subject indicates their average for that subject. The average is calculated based on all their activity (Questions and Exams) in WorksheetCloud.

You can drill down further by clicking on any subject. You’ll then get to see the total number of questions, exams and study notes your child has completed in that subject, as well as their total time learning.

How to use this data to improve my child’s results?

Your child’s WorksheetCloud Report Card is a very useful tool to diagnose strong and weak areas in your child’s learning.

It is important to focus on specific metrics like the total time your child is spending learning within each subject, as well as the total number of questions and exams completed.

If your child is at risk of failing, or there is a specific subject that your child needs to improve, then it makes sense to get your child to keep practicing Questions and Exams in that subject.

HOWEVER, it is just as important that you encourage your child to also practice Questions and Exams from subjects they enjoy. This will help foster a general love for learning, which is the entire purpose of WorksheetCloud. Sometimes in order to improve the “hard stuff”, you need to focus on the “fun stuff” first! Take one step back, and two steps forward.

Get your child to have fun in WorksheetCloud as a starting point to improving their overall school marks, as well as to improve their worst subjects.
