Make a coach recommendation

As a coach, you can recommend a skill from any math mission to a student or group. Once they practice it, it will be prioritized in mastery challenges for that mission.

Note: You cannot make coach recommendations for videos, only for skills. You also cannot recommend skills from any other mission besides math.

Make a recommendation

Below is the most common way coaches make recommendations. With this method, you can view which skill or topic you want to recommend, and recommend it to any number of students within your class.

  1. Once you are logged in, click your username on the top right. In the dropdown, select Your students to access your teacher homepage.
  2. Click Skill Progress at the top of the screen or next to the student’s class.
  3. If you know which skill/topic you are looking for, click Find topic or skill at the top and type it in.  
  4. Otherwise, select the topic to see its list of skills.

  5. Click the skill you’d like to recommend and select Recommend to students that need practice on the bottom right of the skill.
  6. Use the checkboxes next to the students’ names to select which students receive your recommendation.

  7. If you would like to set a due date or adjust the number of problems students must answer correctly in a row, click Recommendation options.
  8. Press the green Recommend students button to confirm.

*NOTE: If you see a red "!" next to your student's name in this report, this means that they have removed your recommendation.  

Make multiple recommendations for an individual student

This method is better suited for making several tailored recommendations for an individual student.

  1. After you are logged in, click your username on the top right, then click Your students to access your coach homepage.

  2. Click Student Progress at the top of the screen or next to the student’s class.
  3. On the bottom left, select a student. Click Make a recommendation on the right-hand side.
  4. Select skills of your choice using the search bar and checkboxes.

  5. Select the number of problems the student must answer correctly in a row. If desired, set a due date.
  6. Click “Recommend to your student” to confirm.


Note: Students over 13 can become their own coaches and make coach recommendations to themselves, specifying 3 questions in a row instead of 5. If you want them to do 5 in a row, be sure to make a recommendation for each skill. Your recommendation will not show up as completed until the student has done the required 5.


What your students see

Your student will see your recommendations on their mission dashboards, regardless of which mission they choose. Recommendations will be prioritized by their due dates and order of assignment.

Check on your coach recommendations

  1. Click Student Progress at the top of the screen or next to the student’s class.
  2. Select a student in the bottom left box.
  3. Click the Recommendations tab. Recommendations the student have completed will be highlighted in green.
  4. Deleting recommendations: If you would like to delete a coach recommendation, click the small X to delete it. If you want to delete the same recommendation(s) for many students, it may be easier to ask your students to remove the recommendations themselves.


Note: You can only delete recommendations you have made yourself, not those by other coaches or the student.
