What is too much red?

Are you wondering if your students have too many red squares?

Updated over a week ago

Red squares indicate a beginning skill with few problems completed or a lower accuracy.

Red squares in Spiral Review signal teachers that the student may need help with the concept or that students need to earn more points in Spiral Review.

Suggestions for Too Much Red

  1. Keep assignments small. No more than 3 skills at no more than 3 points per skill so that students have time to change the colors of the squares while working on the assignment.

  2. Model solving the problems and entering answers in GMM.

  3. Set a daily goal that includes assignment points and Spiral Review points.

  4. Use the SWITCH TO SPIRAL REVIEW button before the end of class. Students will have time to ask questions about Spiral Review skills before working without your assistance.

  5. Prune Spiral Review often by removing proficient skills for the class or skills that are not on the rigor level of assessment.

  6. Consider having a Spiral Review day. Make all assignments unavailable from ASSIGNMENTS, and have students change the colors of their squares.

  7. Use motivation strategies for students getting to green or better on their skills.
