Many clinical users analyze programs and progress of goals by looking at learning opportunities per session or learning opportunities per day. Further, many users assess progress of a learner by looking at the trials it took to reach criterion in a given skill. Learn now has a few different ways to gather this information. This article will go over how to use the session summary, data entry history, as well as a Learning Opportunities graph to find this information.
Learning Opportunities in Learn are calculated the following ways for the different data types.
Percent correct: 1 learning opportunity for each trial scored. Trials not scored are not counted.
Percent independent: 1 learning opportunity for each trial scored. Trials not scored are not counted.
Task Analysis: 1 learning opportunity for each scored step. Steps skipped or not scored are not a learning opportunity.
Rating Scale: 1 learning opportunity for each graphed entry.
Score: 1 learning opportunity for each graphed entry.
Frequency: the number of learning opportunites matches the graphed entry. If 15 are graphed, 15 learning opportunities occurred. If they are not counted as behavior reduction.
Time sampling: Each interval scored and graphed is a learning opportunity. Nothing tagged behavior reduction will count.
Note: As described above, any branch labeled “behavior reduction” domain in the Goal tab of the branch will not be counted towards the overall learning opportunity number.
Trials to Mastery in Learn is calculated by the amount of learning opportunities before being either manually labeled MET by a user, or by meeting MET status via criterion settings.
Learning Opportunities in Session Summary:
To find the Learning opportunities in Session Summary, first, navigate to your session of your client. Then, navigate to the session summary.
Next, open up the desired session you would like to analyze.
Scroll down to the bottom of that session summary and click “Learning Opportunities Per Session”. Once you click it will calculate the learning opportunities.
In this box, you will find the total learning opportunities for that session.
The box will also show the total opportunities per Provider, if you do happen to have more than one provider who took data during that session. For example, you could have 50 total opportunities, and the system will show 50 for the one person, or, if two staff, it would show something such as 28 and 22.. The Learning Opportunities box will also show the total opportunities per Hour, which is based on the main session timer.
Learning Opportunities and Trials to Criterion in Data Entry History in a Learning Tree:
To find information on learning opportunities for a specific program, you will navigate to a Learning Tree first. Open up your client’s learning tree, and then navigate to a branch you would like to view. Click the branch.
Click the right side of your screen to navigate to the data entry history.
Scroll down to beneath all your data entries.
Find the box at the bottom with information. You will find total learning opportunities for this program from the start until current. You will find also the total data points, so that you know the average learning opportunities per data point. In addition, you will find the Learning Opportunities to Criteria Met (trials to criterion). Please note that if the goal is not Met, it will show N/A.
Learning Opportunities per Date:
Users subscribed to the Premium Feature of “Advanced Graphing and Analytics” will find an additional graph in their Graph Analysis Tab.
To find it, while in your Learning Tree, navigate to Tree Options (gear icon) in the top left corner.
Click into “Graph Analysis”.
When you land into the graph analysis page, look to the right of the page. Select your chart type from the drop-down.
The Learning Opportunities by Date graph will appear once you select it. It will list the total learning opportunities for the goal/branch you are viewing.
It will include any and all providers who have graphed data for that date of service. Using the right side of the screen, you can use the tools to show grid-lines or data labels.
Further, you can click the “Show by Provider” to compare the providers on the case and how many opportunities they are getting per shift. You will find all the providers on the case that have taken data for this client, and can toggle them on and off under the graph.
