How to use Prodigy as a relevant entry or exit ticket

Many teachers use Prodigy to engage students at the start or end of class, but it only takes a few clicks in your account to align those entry or exit tickets to your lessons.

Here’s how you can use Prodigy to preview or reinforce content!

You can teach from home while your students learn from home. Take advantage of your Assessments tool to create Plans, Assignments and Test Preps. Delivering curriculum-aligned math content will help your students keep pace and stay engaged.

Go to your in-account Assessments tool

Visit the Prodigy website and click Login in the top-right corner.

Select a classroom, and go to the Assessments tool.

You can find the Assessments tool at the left of your screen on desktop. If you’re using a mobile device, it’s at the bottom.

Create a Plan

At the top of your screen, click the green Create button.

Select the second option in the list, Plans.

Plans allow you to align all in-game content with curriculum-aligned domains and standards across grade levels.

Just follow the on-screen prompts to choose a grade, domain and standard for your Plan that matches your lesson. Then, you can choose the days on which your Plan will run.

Have students log in

If you don’t have one-to-one device use, consider using Prodigy as a learning station or for students who complete work early.

Check your Curriculum Coverage report

As students play, the Student Comprehension report captures their work and progress across domains and strands.

In your Prodigy classroom, go to the Reports tool.

You can find the Reports tool at the left of your screen on desktop. If you’re using a mobile device, it’s at the bottom.

  1. You keep making this program better and better. My only wish is that you would make a program for reading skills as well.

  2. I really like this feature of Prodigy. It keeps my students highly engaged and it encourages a great deal of accountability for their daily math work.

  3. This planning feature gets reluctant students asking questions about the standard aligned assignments. The engagement is priceless.

  4. I have used the planning feature many times. I really enjoy the flexibility of choosing what the students will be working on.

  5. What an AWESOME idea. I sometimes struggle trying to come up with entry/exit slips. Woo Hoo! I am definitely going to incorporate this with my class. 🙂
