How accurate is Prodigy in reporting level?


Recommended Posts

What I mean is, when it says your child is 85% through their 4th grade material, how accurate is that? I am talking about when Prodigy places your child, he wasn’t assigned a grade and no one changed the percent required to have mastered a topic. Rather, the default is used.

I think it is accurate that  they have done that percentage of the 4th grade work that prodigy will set.  With the level - once it had my g4 in g6 for 3/4 of grade 6 then dropped him to g2 because he didn't know US measurements.

At the time we weren't really doing a main programme.  He had done a bunch of stuff about grade 4 and 5 the year before and this year we did a grade 6 text.  I put the grade override on and switched to Australian settings and it seemed to go OK.  I think it might place slightly high but with curriculum differences it is hard to tell.  ds is about a year ahead of grade mostly.

I forget the exact details,  but Prodigy placed my child multiple grade levels above where she was actually working. During the placement test, it would give her only a few questions per grade level before "advancing" her (eventually incorrectly).
