How does the Student Goal Setting feature work?
The Student Goal Setting feature on Freckle allows students in grades 3+ to set a goal and work towards achieving that goal throughout the week.
From the student home page, students have the option to set a goal, and track that goal for an opportunity to earn extra coins each week.
Selecting Set a Goal will prompt students to select which type of goal they would 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. Practice in both Math & ELA counts towards the goals set.
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.
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.
As the student practices and answers questions correctly, the goal setting card on their home screen will automatically be updated to reflect progress towards that goal. Here we can see Stefan is 15% of the way towards answering his 60 questions correctly.
From that point on, students will be able to see on their home page that they have achieved the goal set and they can collect their reward at any time. 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).
