What can I do on the Administrator Dashboard?

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network Administrators

The Administrator Dashboard is a feature available with Freckle's Premium Edition. It allows administrators to be involved in the data tracking and assessing of pupils school-wide. The Administrator Dashboard opens by default when an administrator logs in to Freckle.

When going through Renaissance, administrators who also function as teachers will have to choose whether to proceed to Freckle as an administrator or a teacher (which will determine which dashboard they arrive at).

The 'Continue as' screen, where the user chooses whether to proceed as an administrator or teacher, or use the link at the bottom to return to the Renaissance home page.

Dashboard Page

The Dashboard page gives administrators oversight and control over their class list and licence utilisation:

  • Administrators can toggle between the schools they manage or select an All Schools option from the drop-down list at the top left of the page.
  • Administrators can see the total number of records in their Freckle class list and drill into specific pupils, teachers and courses with search and filtering functionality.
  • Administrators can sync updated class lists by uploading .csvs into Freckle.
  • Administrators can merge duplicate pupils and remove outdated courses from their class list.
  • The ability to see the number of pupil-licences purchased and the current licence allocation is available in the "Manage Licences" section.
  • Complete teacher control: Admins can enter any teacher's individual teacher home using the blue arrow next to that teacher's name. They can remove any teachers from being affiliated with that particular school by selecting the red X.
  • Admins can also invite new teachers at their site to join Freckle at the bottom right of the page.

Growth Data Page

The Growth Data page provides a wealth of data on how pupils are progressing while using the Freckle program. Admins begin by selecting the subject they want to track, and can then decide whether they want to see an overview of all schools they support or drill down into a specific school (further refining the data by year, domain, date range and/or source of class list setup). Once those options are selected, the page will update to display a number of charts, including:

  • Growing versus Struggling pupils overall
  • The average Year Growth
  • Growing versus Struggling pupils by year
  • Average number of questions answered (Growing versus Struggling)
  • Average accuracy (Growing versus Struggling)
  • Average practice sessions (Growing versus Struggling)
  • Average practice in minutes (Growing versus Struggling)
  • Growth by School overview

In this example, the number of Growing versus Struggling pupils is shown in a pie chart, with a calculated average year growth next to it, and a bar chart where growing versus struggling pupils are broken down by year.

Four bar charts comparing data for growing pupils versus struggling pupils: average questions answered, average percent accuracy, average number of practice sessions and average practice in minutes.

A table comparing growth and other data between several schools in the school network.

Usage Data Page

The Usage Data page gives administrators a multitude of data on usage by school site. After selecting a school and date range, reports will populate with the following data:

  • Total minutes spent practising across all subjects
  • Total sessions across all subjects
  • Monthly usage by time spent in subjects (see which subject pupils spend the most/least time using by month)
  • Monthly usage by time spent in practice types (see which practice type pupils spend the most/least time using by month)
  • Monthly usage by sessions in subjects (see the subject on which pupils complete the most/least sessions by month)
  • Monthly usage by sessions in practice types (see the practice type on which pupils complete the most/least sessions by month)
  • Sessions by year (see which years are using Freckle the most/least often)
  • Average total minutes spent per pupil by year (see which years are spending the most/least time on Freckle)
  • Usage by teacher

Note that administrators can select or deselect any of the subjects/practice types to narrow in on how frequently a particular subject/practice type is used.

Proficiency Data Page

The Proficiency Data page gives admins access to the Maths Adaptive Year Report. They also have the option to view reports that were pulled in the past by selecting Legacy Report.

The Maths Adaptive Year Report gives insight into how each school/year/pupil is performing within a given learning domain on Freckle's adaptive maths practice. By allowing administrators to view data at both a high level and drill down into individual pupils, this report ensures they have the data needed to make decisions that will drive pupil growth.

Admins begin by selecting the year, domain and school(s) they would like to monitor and the report will automatically populate with the data requested. From there, they can see the average year at which each school is performing within that domain, the number of pupils below/within/above year in that domain and a colour chart to give a quick read on how that school is performing within that domain.

Selecting a school with data available will show where each pupil falls within that domain (Insufficient Data, Below, Within, Above). It will also allow admins to view the data at the teacher level to determine whether PD or teacher planning groups are necessary.

Assessments Page

The Assessments page allows administrators to create year benchmark assessments and push those assessments out to schools/teachers/pupils. These assessments will be completed by pupils in the Freckle program, and once completed, can be monitored by admins for pupil performance on the Assessments page.

The homepage will show the date an assessment was created, the year for which that assessment was created, the domains it covered, the completion % and teacher to whose class it was assigned. By selecting See Details, administrators can monitor assessment performance at the class, pupil and specific question level.

 

Overall, the Administrator Dashboard is an extremely useful tool for administrators to stay informed about progress and performance at the school, teacher and individual pupil level. The data available can be used to easily isolate next steps and provide recommendations for improvement at any level.
