Your student dashboard provides all the information about what your teacher expects from you and how your training is progressing. You'll land on your student dashboard each time you log in to Membean. Watch a short video below for a walk-through of your student dashboard:
How do I start training?
To start training, simply click the blue "Start Training" button at the top of your dashboard.
How close am I to meeting my training goals for this cycle?
The "Current Cycle" card has information about your training for this cycle. You can see what your teacher expects on the right side of that card, along with progress bars showing you how close you are to meeting those expectations. For example, if you are supposed to train for at least 10 minutes on 3 different days, you'll see a progress bar showing how many days you've trained for at least 10 minutes. Below the progress bar it will show how many more days you'll need to train for at least 10 minutes to meet your goal. Another progress bar shows you your total training minutes for this cycle, and below how many minutes you have left to train to meet your teacher's expectations. You'll also see your accuracy and any dubious minutes that have been detected this cycle.
How do I check if I met my training goals for the last cycle?
In the "Current Cycle" card, you can click the arrow icons next to the date range to show data from previous cycles. The information in the "Current Cycle" card will update to show both training and expectations for the date range shown. You can also click on the the date itself to see all of the training sessions that occurred during that cycle.
How do I see training information for a given time period?
To see what kind of training you've done during a given time range, simply click on the "Search" icon at the top right of the "Recent Training" card.
From there, you can select a time range to look at, and below you'll see all the training sessions during that time period.
You'll also see some aggregate information about your training during that time period, such as number of minutes trained, accuracy, and questions that you've answered correctly.
How close am I to the next level?
You'll see a series of progress bars in the "Words" card that correspond to each level of the list you are calibrated on (such as the "High School word list). Hover your mouse over one of the progress bars to see how many words you've trained on in that level. You'll also see text below the progress bars that shows how many words you have left to study in your current level before you move on to the next level.
How many words have I seen since I started with Membean?
In the "Words" card, you'll see how many words you current have in play, which is the number of words that you have encountered during your training since starting Membean.
How do I "unskip" a bunch of words that I said I already know?
When you select "I Know This" for words during training, Membean assumes that you know this word already and that it is ready for testing (and can potentially show up on a quiz). However, you may want to change your mind. To see all the words that you've "skipped" by clicking "I Know This", simply click on the "All words learned" link at the top right of the "Words" card.
Skipped words will show up in the "Ready" and "Quizzable" tabs, so you can click one of those to see these words. As shown below, they'll have a checkbox that says "IKT" next to them, and if you hover over each word you will see when you skipped that word.
Simply uncheck the "IKT" checkbox next to the word you would like to "unskip" (be careful, this cannot be undone). The word will be returned to the "Started Learning" tab and you'll see that word again in your training. In some rare cases, you may want to "unskip" all of the words that you have marked as "I Know This". To do that, simply click the "Remove all IKT words" link at the top right of either the "Ready" or "Quizzable" tabs, and all of the words that you have skipped will be moved back into the "Started Learning" tab, and will appear in your training again.
How do I know if I was assigned a quiz or assignment?
When you teacher assigns you a quiz or a writing assignment, you'll see a yellow alert at the top of your dashboard informing you. Click the button in that alert to begin taking your quiz or assignment.
You can also see pending quizzes and assignments in the "Graded Work" card, which shows just your 3 most recent quizzes and assignments. However, you can see all of the by clicking the "See all graded work" link at the bottom of that card.
Which words might appear on my next quiz?
To see which words might appear on your next quiz, simply click the "All words" link at the top right of the "Words" card in your dashboard. You'll see all of the words you've encountered during your training categorized into tabs like "Started Learning", "Good Progress", "Almost Ready", "Ready", and "Quizzable".
Click on the "Quizzable" tab to see a list of all the words that might appear on your next quiz. These words changes almost daily, so it's important to remember that at any given time this list of words will change. For more information about why words are considered quizzable, see this support article.
How do I check my score on a quiz or assignment?
To see what score you received on a quiz or writing assignment, find the quiz or assignment in the "Graded Work" card, or click the "View all graded work" link at the bottom of that card. Once you find the quiz or assignment you're looking for, you'll see the grade you received, and in the case of writing assignments, you'll also see comments that your teacher has left.
How do I change my email or password?
To update your email or password, click on the user icon at the top right of your dashboard and select "Settings".
You'll be taken to a page that allows you to update your name, email, password, and some of your training settings. Remember, when you update your name, it will also change your username (that you use to sign in with) so be aware when making changes to your name.
To update your password, click on the "Update password" link on that page.
