Mathematics Tip: Utilizing Key and Manager in the Math Session

The new Key & Manager has officially launched! There are many aspects of Key & Manager that are new that you can utilize in your center, so it will run more effectively. For more information, click the links to directly access the user guides on the topics that are discussed.

When coaching with a student, it is no longer necessary to have all the answer booklets taking up valuable space on the desk. All that the instructor will need to have is a tablet. Each of your instructors needs to be added as an instructor on K&M2 have his or her own user account to utilize all the great features that K&M2 has to offer.

When your instructor logs in and views the schedule, he or she will see the time the classes for the day. If the instructor clicks the plus sign, he or she will see the students that are coming for that time.

During coaching the instructor will click on the three yellow dots. From here there are many options that are available to the instructor that you as the Center Director need to assign. It is important that the instructor at least has access to Progress, Booklet, and Level Test. In the Progress tab, the instructor can see what booklets should be given to the student. The instructor can easily change this if the booklets do not match or different booklets need to be given.

During math one-on-one coaching time, the instructor should record the SCT for a booklet during class by choosing the Booklet option. After the booklet the student is working on has been selected, there will be the option to time page 2 or page 11 and 12. The SCT should be found using the page 2 option from now on. Start the timer and mark the questions which the student answered incorrectly. Afterwards, it is easy to scroll through the electronic booklet to find the target pages that should be graded. After the target pages are graded, the instructor will skip to page 16 to save the learning progress. The grader will access that booklet next week to finish inputting any errors that the student made during homework.

During a math Level Test, the student should sit at the instructor desk. The instructor will grade the test at the same time the student is taking the test. Remember to check the box of any questions that the student answers incorrectly. Once the test is completed, the results will automatically generate. If a student does poorly in one section, he should redo those booklets before progressing to the next level.
