How does the Student Goal Setting feature work?

The Student Goal Setting feature on Freckle allows students to set a goal and work towards achieving that goal throughout the week. In order for the goal setting modal to appear on a student's home page, that student must have completed at least 5 adaptive math practice sessions or answered at least 8 questions correctly on ELA articles/ELA Skills Practice. Once that criteria has been met, all students in grades 3+ will be required to set a goal upon their first login of each week. Goals will be reset every week.

On the left half of the student home page shown below, you can see the option to Set Goal for this Week.

An example student home page, with a reminder to set a goal on the left; the 'Set Goal for this Week' button is at the bottom of the reminder.

Clicking on that button will prompt students to select which type of goal they'd like to set. Students currently have the option to set a goal for answering questions correctly or for meeting a minimum accuracy threshold on a set number of sessions. Coming soon, they will also be able to set a goal for growing levels. Practice in both Math & ELA counts towards the goals set.

The student is presented with different types of goals to set. After selecting one, they use the arrow button at the bottom to continue.

Once they select the type of goal they would like to work on, they will then select the rigor of that goal. Each goal will have a coin reward tied to it for those students who achieve the goal. The more difficult the goal selected, the higher the reward.

The student has chosen an 'Answer questions' goal, and now needs to decide how many questions they want to answer correctly this week: 20, 40, or 60. There are coin rewards for each option. The back arrow and 'next' check button are at the bottom.

In this case, the student has selected to answer 60 questions correctly throughout the week. The reward for achieving that goal will be an additional 1,000 coins deposited into the piggy bank.

A confirmation message for the student, which restates the goal and reminds them how many coins they will earn if they reach it. The 'next' check button is at the bottom.

As the student practices and answers questions correctly, the goal setting modal will automatically be updated to reflect progress towards that goal. Here we can see Thomas is 40% of the way towards answering his 60 questions correctly.

The student's home page, with a status report on how close they are to achieving their goal.

Once the student achieves their goal, the notification below will appear.

A notification congratulating the student for meeting their goal. A 'Collect Reward' button is at the bottom.

From that point on, students will be able to see on their home page that they've achieved the goal set. Do note that students can only set one goal during a given week. They will not be able to set a new goal until the following week (which begins on Mondays).
