Live View of In-Progress Student Work

An exciting new feature just launched to help teachers monitor students’ work in real time with “Live View.” Live View gives teachers the opportunity to see what students are working on, without having to look over a student’s shoulder. Sounds great, right? Let’s dive into how it works.

Live View is available in any “Teacher-Led” activity. To get started, launch a teacher-led activity. Once the activity has begun, at the bottom of the screen there will be an arrow to pop up the “Real Time Student Work.” You have the option of displaying student names or not.

To avoid accidentally displaying student work for the whole class to see, please follow the tip and freeze your projector screen before opening up the “Live View”. Remember, most projector remotes have a ‘freeze’ button that locks what it is projecting at that moment.

After clicking, “Got It!” a view of each students’ workspace will show on your screen. Scroll down to view all of the students’ work.

This view offers teachers lots of information about how the class is doing on each task. The border color indicates student progress: blue (not yet started), yellow (partially correct), red (incorrect) and green (correct). The border color changes dynamically while the student is working on the task. The color of the title bars show whether the student has submitted their response and if it is correct (green), incorrect (red), or not submitted (blue).

For example, in the screenshot below, we see that Jaden has answered correctly (and pressed submit), Alice has input the correct answer (but has not yet pressed submit), Jose has answered incorrectly (also not yet pressed submit), and Marc has not yet worked on the problem.

This tool makes it easier to find students who need some extra support or help during work time.

Live View is also great for finding exemplars or common misconceptions to review with the class after submissions. We love how Woot helps teachers create a culture of learning from common mistakes, this tool makes that process even more efficient. After you find some student work you want to review, click the bookmark button to pull it up later. We have found that when reviewing student work, it’s good to focus on what the student did well, and what they can do to improve. A mix of praise and feedback helps with confidence and keeps students motivated to improve. Also, bookmarks are anonymous to help avoid social pressures around sharing work.

Seeing student work in real-time is a great formative assessment tool, allowing you to tailor your instruction based on students’ current needs and understanding. You can quickly review what everyone in the class is doing, all in real time! In addition to helping you give support during work time, this feature supports teachers in finding pieces of student work to highlight when reviewing the task. Exemplars and common mistakes are great ways to communicate expectations to students, leveraging the power of Woot Math.

We hope you enjoy Live View and please don’t hesitate to reach out with success stories, questions, tips or questions.
