You can select graphic, numeric, both or no scoring.
- (A) In the Tutor Options area of lower left of the Lesson Editor screen, select the Display Options drop down menu.
(B) Graphic Scoring:
- (B Left) A vertical bar of stars at running up the left side of the screen displays Challenge Level achieved for the current shape.
- (B Right)A segmented vertical bar running up the right side of the screen tracks progress toward advancement to the next level.
- The number of segments represent how many times (1 to 10) a student must attain her accuracy goal before advancing. (These parameters are set by the educator in the Tutor Options area of the Lesson Editor screen by setting the Accuracy and Achievement Goals.)
- Each time a student meets the accuracy goal, a Red segment, turns Green.
- When all segments have turned from Red to Green, a star will glide across the screen from right to left to show the student she has succeeded and is moving up to a new challenge level.
(C) Numeric Scoring
- Numeric Accuracy Score represents overall deviation from centerline, divided by the total number of attempts required to complete the shape.
- A student's accuracy score is generated by a series of complex algorithms and measurements gathered by the computer. As a student writes a shape on the touch screen, the computer captures and stores the amount of deviation from that shape's centerline, if any. PointScribe uses that data to calculate and display the accuracy score.
EXAMPLE: The student shown at right:
- (B Left) Achieved Level 1 for the Lowercase "m" and is working on reaching Level 2.
- (B Right) Achieved her target accuracy one out of four times needed to advance from working on Level 2 to working on Level 3.
- (C) Achieved 82% accuracy on her last attempt on the lowercase "m."
- If she had started the letter, then gone off the line (one failed attempt), then completed the letter successfully, her score would be 41%.
