Understanding the Math Report

Overall Statistics

  • Current Grade Level: This reflects the grade level at which child is currently performing.
  • Learning Velocity: This indicates the academic progress in Grades that your child is expected to achieve in one year, based on their current effort.  On average, students using MobyMax can expect to increase by at least two grades per year. If your child’s Learning Velocity is below two grades per year, it suggests they are performing below average
  • Total Time: This represents the total amount of time your child has spent engaged with this particular subject since they started Mobymax. This includes all activities related to the subject, such as completing interactive lessons, taking assessments, and participating in practice exercises.
  • Session Count: This refers to the number of individual learning sessions a student has completed in that specific subject. Each session typically represents a discrete period of engagement where the student actively works on subject-related activities, such as lessons, quizzes, or exercises.
  • Average Focus: This represents the average level of concentration or attentiveness displayed by your child while working on Math activities within the platform. This metric indicates your child’s ability to maintain focus and engagement during their Math sessions. It is calculated based on various factors, including the amount of time spent actively working on Math tasks compared to potential distractions or interruptions. A higher Average Focus % suggests better concentration and attentiveness, while a lower percentage may indicate possible distractions or difficulties maintaining focus.
  • Standards Completed: This refers to the number of specific learning objectives or educational standards that your child has successfully mastered within the Math curriculum. These standards typically correspond to individual skills or concepts outlined in the curriculum framework or academic standards for that grade level. When your child completes a lesson or activity that covers a particular standard, MobyMax records it as “completed” to track the student’s progress and mastery of Math skills.
  • Tests Completed: This refers to the number of formal assessments or quizzes that a student has finished within the Math section of the platform. These tests are designed to evaluate the student’s comprehension and mastery of specific Math concepts or skills. Tests in MobyMax typically cover a range of topics and may include multiple-choice questions, short-answer questions, or problem-solving tasks. By completing tests, students can demonstrate their understanding of Math content and track their progress in mastering key concepts and skills.
  • Lessons Completed: This refers to the number of instructional units that a student has finished within the Math section of the platform. These lessons are designed to teach and reinforce specific Math concepts or skills. Each lesson typically includes interactive activities, explanations, examples, and practice exercises to help students grasp key concepts and develop their skills. By completing lessons, students progress through the Math curriculum, deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts, and build a strong foundation in Math proficiency.
  • Problems Completed: This refers to the total number of individual practice exercises or problems that a student has finished within the Math section of the platform. These problems are designed to provide students with opportunities to reinforce their understanding of Math concepts and skills through hands-on practice. Problems in MobyMax cover a wide range of topics and difficulty levels, allowing students to practice basic arithmetic, problem-solving, and more advanced mathematical concepts. By completing problems, students can strengthen their mathematical skills, improve their problem-solving abilities, and build confidence in their Math proficiency.

Lastly, the number of problems completed reflects their level of activity and effort in working through Maths problems and exercises.

Overall, the Last Sessions Report serves as a valuable tool for parents to monitor their child’s Maths learning journey, identify patterns of engagement, and make informed decisions about supporting their academic growth.

Grade Level Increase per Month
This graph illustrates your child’s academic growth in the subject over the course of several months. It displays the increase in grade level proficiency achieved by your child each month, allowing you to track their improvement over time.

The graph typically shows the grade level at which your child was performing at the beginning of each month, represented on the vertical axis, and their grade level proficiency at the end of the month, shown on the horizontal axis. The distance between these two points indicates the increase in grade level proficiency achieved within that month.

By examining this graph, parents can gain insights into their child’s rate of progress and the effectiveness of their Maths learning efforts. It helps you visualise how your child’s skills are developing and whether they are advancing at a steady pace or experiencing fluctuations in their learning trajectory.

Lesson Topics Done (Last 30 Days)
This provides parents with a detailed breakdown of the individual lessons completed by their child in Maths over the last 30 days. For each lesson, the report displays the lesson name and the percentage score achieved by the child. A pass is typically considered to be 80% or higher for each lesson.

Parents have the option to click on each lesson to review the actual content covered in that lesson. This feature allows parents to gain a deeper understanding of the specific topics and concepts their child has been learning. By reviewing the lessons and their corresponding scores, parents can identify areas of strength and areas that may require further review or support.
