The new school year is off to a good start with the latest release of Robomind Academy. Techniques from ‘Learning Analytics’ have been used to enhance Teacher Support in the Academy. Progress of each pupil is now compared with performance of the average student. Progress evaluation of pupils is made available through the teacher progress screen and in a special evaluation screen. With this new information the teacher can identify pupils that go more quickly through the courses and may possibly benefit from more difficult challenges, but also identifies pupils that may need some extra attention. The evaluation screen can further be used during parents' evening when discussing a student's progress.

The evaluation of a pupil is done both on the storyline and course level and also on the concept level. Knowing what concepts are troublesome to a student will help the teacher to efficiently support the learning process. The Concepts used in the evaluation are taken from the ‘Computational Thinking’ framework used to develop the RoboMind Academy. (robomindacademy.com/go/education).

Next to these new features, the latest Robomind Academy release comes with performance enhancements and other improvements. Visit robomindacademy.com to have a look at all the new stuff.
