When student results are mismatched with their ability level, they may end up taking on challenges they are not ready for.
The following information has been adapted from EdAlive’s Typing Tournament – Guide To Best Classroom Practice.
Sometimes, a student’s recorded results may be fail to accurately reflect a student’s typing ability, or just be plain incorrect. Generally speaking, recorded results are wrong because:
• The student has used the wrong fingers on the wrong keys.
• Someone else has typed in the student’s account.
When students commence using Typing Tournament with the wrong fingers on the wrong keys or their results have been interfered with by another typing in their account, their results will be become out of kilter with their typing ability. When this happens they may be able to gain access to Levels that are too hard for them or earn rewards within the system that are not deserved. Also, the statistics that show up in the class reports will be skewed.
To rectify the situation the student needs to regress and do the exercises again in the correct order and from the appropriate Level. The solution is to reset the student’s results (if for any reason you need to reset the student’s results we have created a powerful inbuilt tool to do just this).
How to reset results for a student:
1. Sign in as a teacher
2. Navigate to the class
3. Select the student
4. Click on “View Student History”
5. Under Point 2 select the Activities which you wish to reset
6. Choose “Delete Selected” from the side bar
