Achievements and Stats enable students to:
Track their learning and progress toward goals
See achievements, lesson history and statistics, such as Week Streaks
Reflect on their learning
Have an increased ability to talk to teachers about their math goals
Teachers can send custom notes or prewritten messages of encouragement, goals or reminders to an individual or entire class. Students can initiate conversations and reply to their teacher by choosing from prewritten messages such as, “I need more time to be successful at this,” or “I’m feeling pretty good about this.” Students can also react to messages with an emoji for a quick check-in. Plus, students using DreamBox in Spanish will see all prewritten messages in Spanish, and messages can be read aloud to support all reading levels.
Week Streak and weekly session time metrics help students monitor and celebrate reaching their DreamBox goals. Students can track their own session time, weekly time and number of completed lessons. Plus, the Week Streak counter can help students reach their usage goals week after week by tracking their longest streak.
All DreamBox schools and districts have access to the new Getting Started with DreamBox professional learning sessions from DreamBox University. These complimentary offerings include self-paced minicourses and a live webinar calendar to support educators with onboarding and implementation. Get these resources from the Insight Dashboard by selecting DreamBox University Courses or Live Training Sessions within DreamBox Quick Links.
DreamBox Math curriculum is designed around research-based learning pathways. A learning pathway is a trajectory of concepts, ideas and models within a larger mathematical concept, such as addition and subtraction. For every concept or skill, DreamBox engages students first with conceptual sense-making experiences (our virtual manipulatives). From there, it empowers students to create self-directed learning pathways and activate prior knowledge as they develop mental and procedural fluency.
DreamBox Reading provides an integrated reading intervention program for all learners. The program includes an adaptive assessment, personalized instruction and practice, and easily accessible resources that enable teachers to meet the needs of every student. As students work to develop the skills and stamina required for extended reading with good comprehension, they will be presented with personalized scaffolding to build independent reading skills. Automatically customized lesson features include content level, reading rate, opportunities to reread text and interspersed questions. Students who demonstrate mastery are progressed to increasingly higher levels of practice and instructional rigor.
