PATH: Campus Instruction > Progress Monitor

The Progress Monitor allows teachers in standards-based classrooms to view students' proficiency at a glance and easily manage assignments across all standards in a section. The option to individualize assignments means teachers can assign work to only students that need it and give them each the time they need.

The Progress Monitor only displays assignments aligned to standards. For classes graded based on Grading Tasks, use the Grade Book.

The Progress Monitor tracks student proficiency across standards aligned to a section.

Understanding the Progress Monitor

The Progress Monitor lists students along the left side and standards across the top.

Indicators within each grid square provide information about assignments aligned to that standard.

Inbox Icon

Indicates that the student has submitted a file for this assignment.

Show Rollup Relationships

Rollup relationships calculate the grade of a parent standard based on the scores a student has received for child standards. This relationship is established at the Course level. In the Progress Monitor, Rollup relationships display with a grey tail in the column header, as show in the image to the right.

Show Power Law Trend ValuePower law is a mathematical calculation that determines a student's proficiency on a standard based on the trend shown by the scores that student has earned. This preference only applies if In-Progress grades set to calculate Power Law in the Grade Calc Options and if the appropriate setup has been completed for the Rubric.

Each of the four highlights can be turned off:
