As a user on Practera who is responsible for the delivery and quality assurance of the exprience, you’ll be able to manage the learning for any number of students with ease from your Dashboard. This article is for active or interested coordinators, authors and admins, and will help you to understand what information and analytics you can garner from the dashboard in order to manage and quality assure your learners’ experiential learning at scale.
We all know that real-world experiences for learners to apply their knowledge is crucial for work-readiness and skill development. But one key obstacle that prevents educators from delivering more experiential learning, is how to support large groups of learners remotely and ensure you detect issues before it’s too late.
Enter, the Practera experience dashboard.
The Practera experience dashboard is the super tool that will empower you with real-time, rich data on your cohort’s progress and performance, as well as the tools to quickly remedy and pre-empt any issues. Say goodbye to finding out in the eleventh hour that your student hasn’t been keeping on top of their tasks or hasn’t had a supportive supervisor.
The stats explained
At the top of the page, we have curated the most important metrics that help you deliver and quality assure the experience. We have seen individual educators deliver a great experience with more than 200 learners in 40+ teams - thanks to the learning analytics!
The insights box displays 5 important stats:
Recommended actions - Number of ELSA recommendations available
Feedback problems - Feedback received a helpfulness rating of less than 6 from a learner
Feedback required - Missing reviewer (no reviewer assigned) or reviewer assigned more than 48h ago and no feedback submitted yet
Off track learners - Number of learner who indicated they feel off track after they received their latest feedback
Overdue submissions - Number of overdue submissions
Additionally, there are four powerful metrics about the overall health of the experience
Active learners - Percentage of learners active in the past 7 days
Feedback loops completed - Number of loops completed (feedback marked as read). A team submission of a team of 5 learners counts as the start of 5 feedback loops.
Cohort confidence - Percentage of participants who indicated they feel confident after they received their latest feedback
Overall sentiment - Percentage of participants who indicated they feel happy after they received their latest feedback
Welcome to ELSA's recommended actions
As you scroll down the page you’ll see there is a list of “recommended actions”. This is ELSA - your AI-driven Experiential Learning Support Assistant (not the Frozen character, but we like your thinking).
ELSA flags issues to the coordinator that are important to quality experiential learning. These are small issues before they become bigger issues, such as overdue submissions, overdue reviews, or team dissonance.
In a couple of clicks, you can send impactful interventions to keep the cohort on track and ensure positive participant experiences.
