Percent progress is based on a fixed number of puzzles associated with a year's worth of progress. Since ST Math allows teachers to assign content to students from any grade level they need, any content a student plays advances their progress. It does not represent a completed curriculum for a specific grade level’s journey. Instead, it shows how much work a student has completed during this school year regardless of grade. Students with intervention work don't get penalized, and students promoted to a higher grade level in a previous year don't have a head start. It's a good way to compare how much work a student has done in your class, this year.
Percent progress is calculated by the total puzzles a student has collected divided by the fixed number of puzzles based on the student’s grade. That fixed number is
- 750 puzzles for PK,
- 1000 puzzles for TK,
- 2500 puzzles for K and Grade 1, and
- 3000 puzzles for Grades 2-8.
All new puzzles completed contribute to a student's progress. This includes assignments from other grade levels, optional objectives, and the bonus journey.
For example, if a student in 2nd grade has completed 823 puzzles this year, their percent progress would be 27%, or 823 divided by 3000.
Because the fixed number of puzzles can be less than the number of puzzles a student completes in their journey, It is possible for students to have a percentage over 100%. If a 2nd grade student completes all 4076 puzzles in their Common Core journey objectives, the student would show 136% progress.
Percent progress only counts puzzles played in the current school year. This means that if a student started on their current grade level content last school year, they may reach the end of their curriculum journey before reaching 100%.
