While a student should feel comfortable making mistakes during training, an accuracy flag means the student is getting a large amount of training exercises incorrect during the reported time period. This article will explain how to use Membean's data on accuracy in order to help your students.

Accuracy impacts the amount of new words a student is exposed to. Students with high accuracy will receive more new words than students with low accuracy because they have proved they are ready for new words.

Identifying Poor Accuracy

When you generate a report, you can view the accuracy of your students at a glance. Very poor accuracy will show up in red.

If you would like to view poor accuracy on a session-by-session basis, you can scroll down and adjust suboptimal filters so that only accuracy is checked.

Sessions with poor accuracy will then show up as red dots. Expand the details of any student with red dots to see and click on sessions with poor accuracy.

Correcting Poor Training Habits

Here are some ways that you can help correct poor accuracy within training sessions:

  • Talk with the student. They may not realize that you can see their training patterns. Often, a conversation alone corrects the problem
  • Ask a trusted adult to sit with the student for 2 or 3 sessions to monitor engagement. Once a student engages, they’ll begin to see more new words and more varied vocabulary.
  • Point out to the student that they can use the Note and/or the Memory Hook features to personalize the word page when they are sent back to review.
  • Remind students to engage in a training without distractions (TV, phone, friends, etc.).
