Adaptive, Common Core-aligned practice and assessment for Math and English students in grades 2-8

Overview

Waggle interfaces with Knewton to provide adaptive, Common Core-aligned practice for elementary and middle school students. Teachers use Waggle to assign goals to students, who then work through assignments to learn individual skills. Waggle requires a license to use.

APPROACH

Upon logging in to Waggle, teachers create a class and select the subject and grade level; Waggle offers elementary and middle school math and ELA. Once the grade and subject are chosen, the program displays all of the Common Core goals (e.g. “multiply and divide whole numbers”) for that grade level. Clicking on each goal reveals the individual skills that make up the goal (e.g. standard 5.NBT.2). Teachers can assign these goals to all students or a portion of them in any order they choose, though Waggle presents a suggested progression. Goals and their due dates can be assigned at any time.

Students’ interface shows the goals that have been set for them and how many days are left to complete them. Selecting individual goals brings them straight to practice problems; as they answer these problems, Waggle provides them with feedback and uses Knewton’s algorithms to adjust the next problem students see. Fun add-on’s like a “distance” meter and releasing flocks of flying pigs help to keep students engaged.

Waggle uses the data generated by students to show teachers their progress. Teachers can check class progress on individual goals and skills, and can also check on individual students. Waggle teacher dashboard shows teachers for which skills the class needs review and which students are falling behind or working ahead of the rest of the class.

PRICING

Waggle requires a license to use. According to the company’s website, prices start at “under $10 a student.”
