Student data: How to Read It

Your Lalilo teacher account will provide you with data to assess your students progress. See Color code and lesson validation to understand what the colored tiles correspond to.

Lalilo's learning progression

Lalilo lessons are based on a learning progression that takes students through phonics, sight words, word families, grammar and conventions, independent reading, and listening comprehension.

  • Students will move along the learning progression from where they are at if no lessons are assigned.
  • When lessons are assigned, students will move back or forward in the progression to study these lessons, and once the assignment is completed they will go back to the lessons they had been studying prior to the assignment.

While lessons are grouped in categories and clusters on the Dashboard, they are displayed in chronological order in the scope and sequence document.

In the example below, once the student completes a first series of exercise corresponding to the #106 Sight Word: an lesson, they will move on to lesson #107 of the Scope & Sequence: Verbs-Instructional Book.

The student is working on exercise 106; on the right, you can see the list of upcoming lessons.

Students will study up to 5 lessons simultaneously.

Each tile corresponds to a lesson, and within that lesson students attempt it with 3–5 exercises. So if a student has 25 exercises on a tile, it means they have encountered that lesson 5 times.

The Dashboard will also help you identify individual and group progress based on lessons and lesson clusters:

Tracking individual progress

Consider the student "Jackson" in the image below.

A class snapshot, focusing on the work of Jackson.

On the Class Snapshot, you can see that he got a few red tiles during the week (red tile = struggling lesson). His success rate for the "Word Family 'am'" lesson is 73% This is a weekly score, based on the number of correct replies divided by the number of questions. It's red because he's already replied to 57 questions on that lesson, without reaching 80%.

If you look at the Students Needing Support section, you can check out which students are struggling on the same lesson (in this example, it's Jackson and Lucia).

For more details, you can select the eye icon on the far right. This will take you to the Answer Report. Here, you will see the overall success rate and the questions with answers organized by date and by type of instruction. On the Answer Report, the success rate displayed is overall for all sessions worked on this lesson. (See Color code and lesson validation to understand what the colored tiles correspond to.)

You can also access the Answer report by clicking on the tiles from the Dashboard:

From this Dashboard, you will see Jackson's success rate for that lesson, but also for all lessons. You can check out the lessons that are within the same cluster to see if his mistakes are specific to one particular lesson or if they may come from a higher-level misconception. In the example above, we see that he is also struggling with another Word Family lesson (the red tile on the far left).

Tracking group progress

The Class Snapshot will help you identify the students who have been in need of support in the current and previous weeks, and the corresponding lessons:

The Dashboard will also help you analyze class trends on content clusters, lesson clusters and individual lessons. You can use this data to plan for review and reteaching with the whole class.

As you look for whole group trends, you'll also notice small group trends as well. This makes identifying students for flexible intervention groups almost effortless. Use the error analysis page for these small groups to understand misconceptions and plan intervention lessons.

In the example below, we see that the 3rd and 8th columns correspond to lessons that seem challenging for students:
