Data analysis

Completion data is 0 for one student without internet access and two students currently on exchange in Chile.

Completion is low, with only two students with over 50% completion of both homework learning tasks and tests.

Students who completed homework tasks generally scored high on tests, up to 100%. This reinforces the platform as an appropriate tool for vocabulary learning. This is borne out  by first student portfolio submissions, where students with high levels of completion and attainment obtained higher levels of achievement in spoken and written tasks.

Individual student data is also available on Language Perfect which shows clearly that many students did not attempt tests, although they completed homework tasks.

‘Not started’ data reflects duplicate tasks as there were some issues with learning how to set up tasks and complete tasks on the site on the part of both teacher and students.  In addition, students were not able to access tests on their ipads, a fact which LP staff neglected to inform me of. Fortunately, when informed of this anomaly, LP posted an app fix within a week so that from week 4 students were able to complete these tasks on their devices.

More specific information regarding difficult words and student success rates are available here. This shows that while most students attempted the homework tasks, the tests were accessed by only a few. This was due to the tests being offered for a limited time.

Individual student data is also available on Language Perfect which shows clearly that many students did not attempt tests, although they completed homework tasks.  However, for the tasks and tests they did sit, words they did not succeed at are highlighted, giving teacher insight into which words are more difficult for each student. This is also provided for the class as a whole  in task completion reports. An example is given below for the -er verb review homework task. This data will allow me to review the most difficult words in class after the test with different activities

Here are the top 11 questions your students found the most difficult:

Question Title Students Attempted Question Number of Attempts Average Accuracy (%)
empezar a => to begin 6 25 52%
aparecer => to appear 8 29 55%
