Getting Started-Observer

As an Observer, we ask that you:

  1. Observe your student on each task/activity, please try to pay attention to behavior as well as temperament on each task.
  2. Provide Feedback after your student completes each section.  This is required for your student to continue.
  3. Do not make any entries for your student or give the student any answers.  You can help guide the student to the correct answer, but we ask that they come to that conclusion themselves.
  4. Guide and encourage your student through each task and help when they indicate they need assistance.
  5. Remind/help your student to touch or click the microphone icon before speaking.
  6. Please feel free to make comments as the stories are playing to enhance learning.

 

For more information please see the Observer tab above.

Getting Started-Student

Your student’s work area will have 11 activity sections for separate activity play. The work area also has an icon where they can play all activities as a whole.   Your student can click any of the icons to get started.  The “Sections 1-11” icon is all sections put together to play at one time.  This can be very time consuming to get through (46 questions), so please consider your student’s ability and attention span before guiding them to select sections.

For more information please see the Student tab above.

Activity Overview

  • For each section and task/question we ask that you help guide the student through by helping them decide on answers, we strongly suggest that you do not answer the question for the child or tell them the answer.  This could skew the data for the study.  Thank you for being a participant!
  • Each section has between 1 and 10 questions or tasks.
    • Some tasks have more than one step, please encourage your student through each task.
    • There are a handful of tasks/questions that will ask your student to choose what task they would like to attempt.  In those questions, it will ask them to select a button for the task they choose to attempt.
      • If at any point in that task they decide they want to attempt the other task they can select the button during gameplay.
      • They can choose to do both tasks, it will prompt them at the end of those tasks to select if they want to try the other one before the question is over.
  • Replay-the replay button will play the story with videos again.  You can click the replay button at any time during the task.
  • Help- the parrot is there to help the student through each section and every question.  If you, as the observer, needs help, you can click the Help link on your observer page.
    • If you cannot find the answer you are looking for, please Contact Us.
  • Parrot- your student can click the parrot at any time to repeat the question.
    • A second access/click of the parrot will give the child a little more guidance in some cases, it may give them a hint or take some of the incorrect choices away.
  • Go Button-the go button is there for the child to click (they can also say go) if they do not want to speak or answer a particular question.
  • Timeouts-there is a time limit on each task/question to avoid issues with your student being stuck on an answer.  If a timeout happens you will see the task they were on disappear and the next question appears.
    • If your student times out on questions they will have the opportunity to attempt that task/question again in the same round of play.
    • Timeouts are unlimited
  • Incorrect Answers-if your student gets an answer wrong, they will have more chances to get the right answer in subsequent attempts and/or multiple chance questions.
  • Speaking (Voice Recognition)-your student MUST click the microphone icon before speaking.  Please aid then in this task if they need it.
    • All words must be spoken as clearly and correctly as possible.  If your student does not say the whole word, but only a partial word or just a sound, that will be recorded.
    • Please encourage them to speak anything they can or want to, we would like to see if gains are being made if they attempt to speak the words multiple times.
    • When the microphone icon appears on the screen, your student MUST click the microphone icon before speaking.  If they speak before they click the icon is selected,  the system will not detect speech and therefore not record an answer.
