In this session participants will ... streamline the process of data collection, correction, analysis and collaboration with students, which ultimately motivates them and helps them to self monitor their learning activities. The results are students set and meet personalized goals and they seek increased classroom challenges and experiences, while becoming independent learners. Data collection, grading, analysis and collaboration is a time consuming task for any teacher. We have found a way to implement a Google form to quickly generate a recap that helps the student to analyze their progress. All students are motivated by their progress; likewise, all students want to be successful in class and in the future. Our students find this information valuable, and as a result, they challenge themselves to higher levels of understanding. High level students use this data to monitor their skills and challenge themselves beyond the classroom, often they want to discuss their competitive edge with regard to college entry. On level students monitor their progress, often seeing areas they need to improve to compete with their peers. These students fine tune their studies. Struggling learners use this data to identify strengths as well as areas in need of improvement. These students become extremely excited discovering a strength, something they had no idea they possessed! They are no longer "bad at math," they are motivated to succeed! Engagement soars!
