Teaching goals

This teacher needed to prepare students for an upcoming test where they had to count and calculate money. In order to give them more practice in an engaging fashion, the teacher used a Flint tutor to both appeal to the students’ personal interests and give them realistic scenarios.

To scale the difficulty of questions correctly, the teacher also uploaded an example test to show the AI how complicated the practice with students should be.

Learning objective:

Students are learning how to add and subtract monetary amounts. Ask students about their personal interests and what they would like to buy with their allowance. An example test is attached with context for the complexity of questions.

Extra customization

To match the teacher’s typical assessment style for practice like this, the teacher used the revise feature to quickly update the rubric to be more qualitative and encouraging to the young learners.

Revision request and newly generated rubric with grade buckets ranging from "awesome" to "keep trying", paired with suitable emojis.

To make sure the AI is pushing students to do the calculations and try again when they make mistakes, the teacher set the helpfulness level of the tutor to none and added rules saying that students should do calculations themselves and be prompted to retry when they get things wrong.

Helpfulness level set to never giving answers and rules stating that students should do calculations themselves and try again when they get something wrong.

Student experience

With a practice available like this, students can practice as much as they want before the test. Teachers can see how students are improving over time and help students who seem to be consistently getting confused on the same topics.

As you can see in the tutor analytics below, it seems like students still struggle with subtracting monetary amounts, so the teacher knew to review that again in class before the test. The teacher can even use Flint’s suggested follow-up tutor to give students specific practice with subtraction.
