How do I use the Class Skills Report?

Updated

Our new Skills report provides deeper insight into student progress toward mastery of skills across units and courses. These insights can help you tune your lesson plan to give extra attention to trouble spots and to celebrate success.

The Class Skills Report

To get to the Skills report, you can go to your Teacher Dashboard and click on Activity Overview. From there, you will see two tabs, one named Activity, and the other Skills. Click on the Skills tab.

At the top of report, you’ll see the course title and the total number of units and skills in it.

Under that, you’ll see a list of all the units in the course and the number of skills in each unit. Click on a unit to view your class’ progress toward Mastery for each skill. Hover over the purple bar for a quick view of how many students are at each level of mastery -- Attempted, Familiar, Proficient, or Mastered.

Click on a skill to see your students grouped by their Mastery level.

You can click on a student to be taken directly to their Activity page.

You can hover over each Mastery Level to see more information about that level.

Additionally, you can now view the Common Core Standard for each exercise directly from the Skills report.

Also, hovering over the View exercise link will allow you to preview a sample exercise from the unit. Clicking on it will take you to the exercise itself.

The Skills report also makes it easy to assign specific skills to some or all of your students. To do this, click on the skill to expand it, and then click on Assign this skill.

A pop-up will appear and you’ll be able to assign the skill to your class, a group of students, or a specific student (or save it for later).

When will I be able to see older progress?

If your students used Khan Academy prior to 2019, the skills report currently does not reflect mastery progress made during that time. We expect the backfill of data from prior to 2019 to be complete by the end of July, at which point all mastery levels by skill will be accurate for all students.

We want to provide the tools you need as soon as we can, but we know that this historical data is important for teachers using the new Skills Report and we greatly appreciate your patience. You can share your thoughts with us in our Support Community or contact support.
