After our first term live, we have collated some key usage data surrounding the platform. Click through the break to check it out!
We have recently updated the teacher dashboard which has changed the way teachers can access student progress data. Click through to see a video tutorial of the new reporting process.
The following post is the first in a series discussing best practice using My Study Series. Each week over the next few weeks we will be discussing aspects of the platform that when used appropriately, really help boost student engagement, learning and hopefully achievement!
Teachers need to be able to check student progress as they work through videos. This is a simple process on My Study Series and is completed through the dashboard. The following video tutorial describes how to access the progress reports, download student data, and check to see which aspects of each course the students have completed. Student email addresses have been blurred out.
Welcome to My Study Series, the online learning platform by New Zealand PE teachers, for New Zealand PE teachers and their students! We look to provide targeted video content for senior Physical Education standards, paired with automated quizzing and an online badging system to reward learners and increase engagement.
As part of our badging system, our badge provider sends a notification email every time you unlock a new badge. If you would like to disable this feature, it is easily done through the user dashboard.
The following video tutorial describes how a teacher can go about doing two things. First of all it shows you how you can export quiz data to see how your students are achieving in the automated quizzing, then it describes how you access and view student essay questions. As essay questions are ungraded and given a pass, you want to take some time to see how your students are demonstrating critical thinking.
Towards the end of most quizzes you will notice 1-2 essay questions. These are opportunities to demonstrate aspects of critical thinking relating to the lesson. These questions are not self graded, so both students and teachers will need to understand how they work.
When you find yourself within a lesson, you will notice a small “take notes” tab in the lower right of the page. Clicking on this tab will open up a floating notepad which you can use to take notes throughout the video / lesson.
If your school has purchased access to My Study Series, they will provide you with a 12 to 20 digit access code required for you to complete your registration. There are a few steps you will need to take first though:
One of the best features of the My Study Series learning platform is the automated quizzing.
