Teachers not only dedicate a major portion of their time to plan lessons, create assignments, and conduct tests, but also to determine their students’ overall performance through formative assessments and reports.
But constantly evaluating formative assessments and building performance reports for each student can be challenging for teachers, especially while overseeing other tasks.
This process can be simplified with the help of Prodigy where teachers can deliver formative assessments and automatically track results within their teacher account!

Step 4: Monitor Overall Student Performance Through ‘Reports’
To get a complete overview of your classroom performance, select ‘Reports’ from the left side of the dashboard and continue. Here you will find a list of reports ranging from ‘Topic Coverage’ to ‘Student Usage’ that you can access and get an overview of your students’ progress.
You can select ‘Student Usage’ to get an overview of your students’ engagement at home and in school throughout the week.
Similarly, you can select ‘Student Comprehension’ to get an in-depth look at a particular student’s progress. Prodigy gives teachers access to individual student performance reports so that they can understand where a student is struggling. These comprehensive reports pinpoint specific skill sets where students are lacking and help teachers to identify the trouble-spots easily so that they can revisit those lessons.
Teachers can make use of Prodigy reports to understand every aspect of a student’s progress and development. ‘Weekly Activity Reports’ and ‘Student Usage Reports’ help you track students’ engagement on the platform whereas ‘Student Comprehension Reports’ and ‘Topic Coverage Reports’ provide a concise understanding of each student’s progress and trouble spots on each topic.
