How do I understand Admin Insights?

This is part of our Chalk Solutions. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

As an Assessment or Instruction Admin, you have access to Insights, which will give you a snapshot of Chalk usage within your institution in regards to the numbers of lessons planned, or what lessons have standards attached to them, for example. These things can help you provide better feedback, and have a clearer understanding how how teachers are using Chalk. This article will give you a brief overview of the Admin Insights available!

You can access Insights by going to the Admin App and selecting Insights on the left-hand side.

From here you will see four graphs. Adjusting the dates in the top right corner impacts what information is displayed on all four graphs so this is the first thing you will want to set.

We will briefly explore these graphs below!

Scheduled Content

The first graph you see on the screen displays the number of teachers that have at least one lesson planned on on the selected date. You can also see the number of teachers that have at least one standard attached to a lesson on that date.

Teacher Activity

This graphs allows you the see when teachers are planning, and whether or not they are importing and/or sharing lessons.

Total Lessons Imported

The bar graph on the bottom left displays the number of lessons that have been imported on a given date. This will give you an idea of the number of lessons that are being used amongst teachers.

Note: This is not an indication of the number of teachers that have used specific resources. 

Total Lessons Shared

The bar graph on the bottom right displays the number of lessons that have been shared on a given date.

Note: This is not an indication of the number of teachers sharing these lessons, as one teacher may have shared multiple lessons.

Knowing that teachers have created lessons for a given date (Scheduled Content) is a great start, but being able to dig further into not only when they're planning, but whether that means they're creating their own plans or leveraging shared resources (Teacher Activity), can give you more context as to how teachers work on lessons. You are also able to compare and contrast the number of lessons being used (Total Lessons Imported) with the number of lessons being shared (Total Lessons Shared).
