New missions exercises July 2017

 

We've been steadily adding new content to the Khan Academy library all year, and this summer we'll be updating the corresponding math missions to reflect this.

This means that your mission progress % will likely go down since the denominator of skills will increase (so say, instead of mastering 90 out of 100 skills, you'll now have mastered 90 out of 110, which would reduce your percentage from 90% to 82%).  You'll still have mastered the same number of skills as before, you'll just have additional ones to complete now.  

We expect the drop to be between 0% and 20% depending on the mission and the student. More typically, students will see a 3% to 5% drop in their progress percentage.

We're always working to improve our math missions, and progress % dropping is an unfortunate side effect when we do add new content to missions.  We try to make these changes when most of our users are experiencing summer in order to minimize disruption to the classroom, but we recognize this still isn't ideal for students.  If you have some ideas for other ways we might approach this situation, we'd love to hear them!
