Using data from Sparx to start your next lesson

As students complete their homework each week, data is automatically collected behind the scenes about how well individual pupils, and classes, understand the concepts being presented.

Insights is an area in the Teacher Portal that allows teachers to look at this data in a format that can aid them in pitching their next lessons and support at the right level and to the right students.

The Help the Class section of Insights shows the top five concepts that the class as a whole found challenging, or excelled at, in the latest homework. This information can be used as a lesson starter to revisit concepts that a lot of students found tricky; to alleviate any misconceptions that the students were having; or to pitch content at a higher level than planned.
