Hey Siri, how is my child doing?

As a parent, it is important to help keep your children on track with their studies. However, you simply do not have the time to keep watch over all of your child’s revision, nor would it be practical. 

Researchers found that while homework help is beneficial for some students, including those with low test scores, it is not helpful for all. While the extent to which parents providing homework help actually assists students is unclear, experts do agree that parents need to know how their children are doing. 

Sometimes, you may just wish that you could ask Siri how your child is doing. KooBits for parents actually provides that functionality, along with online learning insights that you can use to improve your child’s education. 

Getting to know our app

All you have to do to make use of the KooBits Parent App is install it on your smartphone then connect your child’s information to it. From there, you will be able to see your child’s progress at any time. Best of all, this is part of all pricing plans. For your convenience, it is available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play store. 

Real-time learning progress

No matter where or when you are, you can use the application to track your child’s progress, including their strengths and weaknesses. This is particularly helpful as the app keeps track of them for you, so you do not have to remember what math concepts your child struggles with or which areas they excel in. Just launch the app and you will see it all laid out for you. 

Use this information to figure out which areas your child needs some extra support in. Then, either provide that support yourself or have them focus on those lessons in their online learning. 

Compare progress with the school syllabus

Knowing your child’s strengths and weaknesses can be some of the most valuable online learning insights, but they are not the only ones. You also want to know how your child is doing in comparison with the class syllabus. Are they far ahead and could take a quick break? Are they lagging behind and need some extra revision and explanation? 

With the application, you do not need to waste time trying to communicate with your child’s teacher and waiting for a response. That could take days, given how busy teachers are. Instead, the application will clearly show you how your child is progressing compared to the syllabus from the school. All the relevant information is already incorporated into the app. 

Compare progress with peers

For many parents, one of the most interesting online learning insights is how your child compares to others. This is an excellent way to gauge your child’s competency with math without having to talk to others. Without this insight, you may have to share your child’s progress in return for information on the progress of their peers. This is private information, and while you may want to brag about your child’s success, you do not want to risk putting them down and hurting their morale, as that could damper their enthusiasm for math. 

As you compare your child’s progress in math with their peers, keep in mind that Singapore is already a world leader in math. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s 2018 international benchmark study found that Singapore students (age 15) ranked second in the world for not only mathematics but also reading and science. As such, your child’s progress comparison is likely among some of the best math students of their age in the world. 

Put the information to good use

Simply accessing your child’s progress compared to others and learning their strengths and weaknesses is a great start, but it is not enough. Put these online learning insights to good use. Encourage your child to work harder in the areas that they struggle with. Talk to them about what is causing difficulties and see if there is an alternative way to explain the concept that helps them better understand it. At the same time, praise your child for their strengths and the areas in which they are beyond their peers or syllabus. This encouragement will help to provide motivation. 

When it comes to keeping track of your child’s education, KooBits provides personalized insights catered to your child. Remember that our parent app is included in all pricing plans. If you haven’t yet, you can download it on Apple App Store and Google Play store.
