Student Dashboard and Goals

After logging in to myON, students see a dashboard that tells them about their reading progress.

What Are the Goals?

Each student's first goals are:

  • Read 20 minutes per week and 80 minutes per month.
  • Read 2 books per week and 8 books per month.
  • Read 32 pages per week and 128 pages per month.

After the first week and the first month of reading, the student's new goals are 120% of the achievements of last week and last month. So if the student read 30 minutes last week, the goal for this week is 36 minutes.

Note: These goals are not related to goals that teachers or administrators set on reports.

Pre-K through Grade 5: Scooter, Race Car, and Rocket

Students in Pre-K through grade 5 see a dashboard like the one shown below. They can use it to see goals that myON sets for each week and each month.

How Does the Student See Progress?

For each goal, the student's progress is shown as a scooter as the student works toward the goal. As the student reads books, the scooter moves further on the line to show progress. For time spent reading and pages read, progress is updated as the student turns pages in a book. For books finished, progress is updated whenever the student finishes a book. The flag shows where the student's goal is.

When the student meets a goal, the scooter changes to a race car.

When a student has passed a goal far enough (at least 120% of the last goal), the race car changes to a rocket.

How Does the Student See Other Goals?

The first goal the student is shown is the time spent reading this week. To see the other goals for the week, the student can select Books finished or Pages read.

select Books finished or pages read to see how you are doing on those goals

To see the goals for the month, the student selects Month. Then, the student can select any of the three monthly goals. (The student selects Week to go back to the weekly goals.)

Grades 6-12: Gauges and Trophies

Students in grades 6-12 see gauges for each goal and trophies when they meet the goal.

How Do Students See Progress?

Students will see a gauge for each goal. The pointer on the gauge will tell the student how close he or she is to making the goal. Below the gauge, the student will see his or her accomplishment from last week.

Once the student meets a goal, the student will see a trophy at the top of the gauge along with the achievement. The gauge will show how much more the student did than the goal required. In the first example below, the student read 3 books this week and 2 books last week, so the student has read 50% more books.

How Do Students See Monthly Goals?

To see monthly goals, the student selects the arrow pointing down in the bottom right corner of the Dashboard area. To go back to weekly goals, the student selects the arrow pointing up.
