I am interested in seeing how the Khan Academy details and feedback are given on student reports and progress. I am asking for volunteers to sign up and work on Khan Academy.
What do you need to do?
Go to www.khanacademy.org – there is a link under blogroll.
Click practice – register for an account.
When you log in, you will scroll to very bottom of page and click add a coach, then type in firstname.lastname@example.org to be registered in my coaching group.
You will earn badges and energy points as you grow in your achievement.
It begins at a basic addition and works up through more difficult conepts. Currently, I think there are 100 self-paced exercises. Under each exercise, if you are not sure how to do a skill, you may choose to watch a video or request a hint. When you have at least 10 problems completed correctly, it will award you a proficiency badge and you can move on to the next exercise.
This is a new experience for me, so I will be learning along with you.
Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses to take this challenge!
I will have access to seeing your progress, time on task, time watching videos, etc.
If you volunteer to do this on your own time – I will assign credit to you in your grades. This will not be bonus points or extra credit – but extra grades that will benefit you, depending on your achievement. It will in no way harm your average.
