Teachers can use Amplify Vocabulary Reporting to track their students' progress as they master vocabulary words or differentiate content by changing the word stream for a given student. Selecting “Reporting” will show a list of classes, including a Demo Class. Clicking on a class takes you to the student list for that class.
Class and Student Views
The class view shows overall class accuracy, and some high-level information about each student. Accuracy scores (representing # correct / # attempted) that are below 75% will be highlighted in yellow, those below 55%, in red. Teachers can sort each column of information and can filter for time-span for the stats. Clicking Export List downloads a CSV of class stats onto your local computer. Clicking on a student in the list will bring you to the stats for that specific student.
The student view for teachers is identical to what the students see and includes a link to the student’s word lists, which show all words in play for a student, progress toward mastery for each word, and a separate list of mastered words similar to the one students see. This view also shows the current grade and stream for the student.
Teachers can review all words in play for a student by clicking on Student Word List located at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Clicking on a word in the list will show the activities attempted correctly and incorrectly for the word.
The words view offers filtered access to all word and activity content in the Vocab App. In words view, teachers can quickly find specific words to review related info and activities. The search field is the quickest way to find a specific word. A searched list of words shows part of speech and streams for each word. The word list can also be filtered by grade or by stream. Clicking Export List downloads the current words into a CSV on the local computer.
From here, words are clickable to show more information. The word info view shows all the activities for a given word. Selecting activities for a word and clicking Launch Activities will start a full preview of the activities — exactly what students are seeing.
Change a Student’s Word Stream
Teachers can change a student’s word stream in either the class or student view (see screenshots below), which will result in easier or harder words being delivered to the student. The choices for setting grade in the dropdown are Gradeless, three numbered grades, and an ellipses.
The numbered grades choices will be the grade of the current class, and a grade above and below, e.g. for a 6th grade class the grades will be 6, 7, and 8. After choosing a numbered grade, you will be then select the stream for that grade. Your choices for stream are Substantial, Core, and Challenge (Below, At, and Above, respectively). Choosing the ellipses will expand the list to all grades.
Choosing Gradeless as the grade will allow four gradeless stream options, three ELL and on Academic. The ELLs streams are Emerging-Substantial, Expanding-Moderate, and Bridging-Light, or low to high ELL difficulty. ELL streams are differentiated (e.g., a student who does well in Expanding will move to Bridging). The Academic stream is undifferentiated, and delivers a fixed set of Academic words until mastered.
Disable Activities and Limit Words
To disable specific types of activities and change the daily word limit, click the gear icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Here, teachers can filter activity types per class (i.e., choose activity types that the class will not see). You can also set a daily word limit. This limit is set to 10 new words per day by default.
