Transitioning from the old Progress Report to the New Class Skills Report

Updated

We are introducing a new report that replaces the old Progress Report so that you can continue to track skill-level progress at a glance. As you may know, we’re removing Missions from our platform on June 30, 2020 as part of a larger effort to update our codebase, and this means that the old Progress Report is also going away on that date.

We know this is a big change, but we're also introducing a new Class Skills Report in the Course Mastery system that's modeled after the old Progress Report, so that you can maintain insight into how your students are progressing. The new Class Skills Report will be available mid-June, so you'll have time to learn and use the new report before the old Progress Report goes away.

The New Class Skills Report

What's Staying the Same 

Many of the things you loved about the old Progress Report will be available in the new Class Skills Report:

  • You will see a list of all the skills in the course
  • Color-coded bars will display your students’ performance across the skills
  • You will see a list of your students in each level.
  • You will see a preview of exercises and navigate to them directly.
  • You will assign a skill to your class directly from the report.

What's New

There are a few new features in the Class Skills Report:

  • The new report will be available for all mastery-enabled courses, not just math.
  • The new report will display students at each mastery level in Khan Academy’s Course Mastery system
  • If a skill aligns with a Common Core standard, we’ll display the standard within that skill.
  • You can now see a count of how many units there are in your course, and how many skills are within each unit.

 What's Going Away

There are some features that were available in the old Progress Report that won't be available in the Class Skills report:

  • The old by-student view won’t be available at launch, though it’s on our roadmap. 
    • You can get a detailed view of a student’s activity from the student’s Activity Log.
  • There's no red bar showing Struggling students.
    • You can use the Attempted skill category to identify which skills students are struggling with: Attempted means that a student got fewer than 70% of questions correct in an exercise, or they missed a question on that skill in a quiz, unit test, course challenge, or mastery challenge. Here’s more about Mastery (including the definitions of each skill level).
    • We also encourage you to use the Activity Overview Report to identify students who have many learning minutes but few skills leveled up.
  • Report data won't be downloadable. 
    • You can download data from the old Progress Report until June 30, 2020.

We know that these features are important to teachers and we are working hard to bring them back. If you have feedback about how you use these features, we’d love to hear from you. You can share your thoughts with us in our Support Community or contact support.
