Student Accounts & Reports

 

Unlimited Students with Record Keeping

Language Builder by Stages Learning App Landing Page

Overview

Version 1.1 of the Language Builder from Stages App includes unlimited student accounts with record keeping capabilities to track student progress.

Teachers and clinicians can create an individual profile for each student they work with. This allows the professional to create and save student-specific settings within each of the activities for each individual student, rather than changing the settings each time you use the app with a different student. You can now also track student progress within the app with the reports feature, which is great for professionals and parents alike! You can see information on lessons completed, the number of words correct or incorrect, and the types of prompts that were needed, all in one place! You can even track the student’s progress over time by looking at activities completed by date.

Reports Overview

You can track individual students’ progress within the student profiles by using the reports feature. Reports provide information on how long it took the student to complete an activity, the number of targets and distractors used, details about prompts used, if any, and percentage correct for each target word. You can also track the student’s progress over time by looking at activities completed by date. This feature is available in both the Basic and Pro versions of the Language Builder from Stages app.

Word Lists

The word lists allow you to choose your Target words (the word the student is actually practicing) and your Distractor words for the Identical and Similar Matching, and Receptive Labeling activities.

  • When you touch a card once in the word list, it will get a check mark next to it indicating it is a TARGET CARD.
  • To include DISTRACTOR CARDS in the field, touch the word in the list twice.

By selecting separate TARGET CARDS and DISTRACTOR CARDS you have the ability to distinguish which cards your student is actually practicing and which cards are the distractors.

The Expressive Labeling, Picture ID and Sorting activities use only TARGET words.

You can view the word lists either Alphabetically or by Category by selecting the view at the bottom of the word list. Specific functionality of the Word List is found under each of the activity descriptions.
