The Class Grouping Report is designed to help teachers form the most effective small groups amongst his or her students. Whether you want to sort your students by same level or mixed level, Freckle will use student data to form perfectly matched groups.
On the report, you will see a quick overview of all domains that your students have worked on.
On clicking on the left arrow next to a domain, you can easily create groups for your class.
Same Level Groups
Same level groups are formed based on the standard or topic students are currently working on. This means that the teacher can pull these small groups 3-4 students and work on developing the skills needed to master the standard while other students can work independently on Freckle.
Mixed Level Groups
Sometimes you may want to form heterogeneous groups inside your math classroom. Maybe you’re forming teams for a class competition, or having students group together to complete a project. You can create mixed level groups by switching the grouping mode. The mixed level groups create groups of students at all different levels within a domain. Below you see what a mixed level grouping looks like:
The Matrix View
The Matrix view is the third option under a domain.
The Matrix view shows you exactly where all students are working within a given domain. By lining the students up from lowest performer (or most behind) down to highest performer (or most ahead), you can see exactly where students are falling off. If you hover over the level, you can see exactly what students are working on in that level.
This allows you to quickly see what topics to re-teach or pull a small group for.
