Imagine Language & Literacy (IL&L) students can view their daily minutes and weekly minutes of program usage via the Pause screen. The timer resets every Sunday and displays the number of minutes students have been active in the program from Sunday of the current week until the current day. Active time includes time in all activities—all lessons plus assessments, reward areas, Playlist activities, and Guided Review Mode. Time on the logout countdown screen is considered idle time and is not included.
The Imagine Language & Literacy Usage report calculates and displays the time students spend in assessments and in their recommended sequence of activities, including Guided Review Mode. It does not include time spent in reward areas. Therefore, the usage time reported to students is often higher than the time reflected in the Usage report, because the student time tracker counts all minutes from login to logout (excluding time paused).
Have students record their usage information in a Student Session Tracker. Several versions are available for Teachers and Administrators in the Teacher Resources > Offline Resources > Classroom Resources section of IL&L.
To view usage time in IL&L (steps for students):
- At any time during a session, students can click the Pause button in the bottom left corner of the screen.
- Usage time for the current day and week displays in the bottom left corner of the screen.
Students who use both Imagine Language & Literacy and Imagine Español should be aware that the daily and weekly times display for both programs combined. Teachers and Administrators can view usage for each program separately via the Usage reports in the educator dashboard.
