Core PiXL principles embedded within the app to aid learning:
Diagnosis Therapy Testing
After completing an online assessment students are given an online report outlining their strengths and areas to develop For each question within an online assessment, there are therapy videos for each skill. These can be watched to help close the gap. After diagnosing an issue and watching the therapy videos, students can return to the same question where values have been refreshed to ace it!
The app has been designed to make life easier for staff to diagnose issues with just a few clicks:
Results analysis
Online assessments Gap analysis
With students completing the PMA online questions at home or at school, all of the results are saved to the server. The PMA allows staff to extract all their class data with just a few clicks and presents the information as a covey board for ease of use. After any written assessment, the PMA can now analyse a students performance and present the feedback to both the learner and the teacher as a coveyboard.
