1. Downloadable 'Markbooks' for a daily summary of work completed
If you need a report to monitor your students' achievements on a daily or even weekly basis, our 'Markbook' is here to help. A 'Markbook' allows you to see data relating to all work completed in HegartyMaths (Homework, Independent, Fix Up 5, and MemRi). You can choose which specific classes are included in the report as well as the time period that you want the report to cover. You can download a 'Markbook' from our 'Progress' section and this will be emailed to you in a matter of minutes in the form of an Excel spreadsheet (A 'Homework report' is available, displaying data relating to Homework only).
2. Monitoring students' tasks as they are being completed
If you are looking to check the progress of your students on a task that has been set, we recommend you do this only when the deadline of the task has passed. Use the 'Mark work' section to check the progress of your students and view any comments they may have left you (Filtering to 'Passed due date'/'Current' as desired). In the 'Mark work' section you are able to leave feedback for individual students or the class as a whole; reassign tasks; or even set individual students personalised building blocks if they have struggled with the task. There is a help video at the bottom that explains the 'Mark work' section in more detail.
3. Identifying when a student last logged in
If you need to identify when a student has last logged into HegartyMaths, you can use our 'Linked classes' section. This page will tell you the last date and time a student accessed HegartyMaths. This is accessed by clicking 'HegartyMaths' in the top left of the screen and then selecting the relevant class; other useful data points are available on this page e.g. How many questions the student has answered (The data on this page is cumulative since September).
4. Custom classes allow you to set work to specific groups of students
If you need to set work for specific groups of students e.g. children of key workers, you may find it useful to create a custom class. This is a class you can create using students in other existing classes. Custom classes allow you a way to set work for this group of students, monitoring their effort, and best of all, these classes also appear on all of the HegartyMaths reports! Custom classes can be found on the 'Manage students/classes' section, by selecting 'Create custom class' or 'Create single class'.
5. Setting work for classes that are not your own
If you need to set work for classes that you do not normally teach, you can do this very easily in two different ways. Firstly, you can simply link to the relevant class, as if they were your own, and set work as you normally would, you can then easily unlink the class when you have finished. Alternatively, you can set a task to multiple classes at once, even if they are not linked to you, this is achieved by clicking the green 'Set task' button on the 'Skill' preview, which can be accessed by searching for the task in the search bar.
6. Marking work set by other teachers or for classes that are not your own
If you are supporting a teacher, or one of your colleagues is unavailable to review and mark their own work, you can easily support them. By merely adjusting the filters in the 'Mark work' section so they are set to a different teacher or classroom you can then review work set by other teachers. You can also offer feedback, reassign tasks, and perform every function you would need to as if you were the original teacher who set the task.
7. Topic lists for Key Stage 4 students
If you need to provide differentiated support for your KS4 students to guide their independent learning, we have produced a selection of GCSE skills revision sheets at a foundation, crossover, and higher level. These sheets provide students with a breakdown by topic of the key skills they need to be proficient in alongside the relevant HegartyMaths clip number. Students can work through their list independently, searching by clip number in the search bar, watching the video, and then completing the quiz. These revision sheets can be found in our 'Useful resources' section (There are similar Key Stage 3 and A-Level transition courses available).
8. Common issues
Students struggling to log in
Firstly check that they are using the correct details and that the details are correct on HegartyMaths (Name and Date of Birth), also check that the student is not trying to log on as a teacher. There is an article on our help pages that explains how to reset a student password and a help video to show your students how to log in.
New students not appearing on HegartyMaths
Firstly check that they are in a timetabled maths class on your register and check with the data manager that no settings are preventing the exporting of data, if you are still having issues, please contact us.
A student's work is not as I expect
If a student's work is not showing as complete, there are two common explanations.
Firstly, check if the student has a duplicate account by searching the student's name in the 'Manage students/classes' section; if you see that they have two accounts, please contact us.
Otherwise, it is most likely that the student is up to mischief. Asking the student to show you their notes, and working out is a good way to check this.
