Reporting bugs on Education Perfect

The more details of the issue you give us, the faster we can work out what's gone wrong and how to fix it.

Common causes and fixes

See the following table to see fixes for our most common issues:

My students' progress is decreasing

Have you enabled spaced repetition?
Spaced repetition requires students to earn more than one star on each word within the task. The day after they first learn a word, your students can revise the same word to earn themselves a second star. After another week students will be able to repeat the activity to earn the third star, etc.  

If you would like your students to learn the content more than once, it's important to note that, after they've they won't be able to progress in the task until a certain amount of time has passed.

For more information on how our points and scoring system works, you can read through our help guide: How does the points/scoring system work?
My student has completed work but it isn't showing in the task

Have you included previous progress? 
When a task does not have previous progress included, students will need to complete the content from within the task, within the due date. Any attempts done outside of the task will not be included.

My student completed the task to 100% but then the progress decreased

Has the lesson been edited since the task was assigned? 
If a lesson has been modified in the duration of the task, students will lose their progress for any of the words or questions that have been modified, even if the modification was only adding additional correct answers.

My student has completed the work but it is not showing 100% Have your students completed all available Learning Modes? 
A task will only be counted as 100% complete when the student has completed all of the Learning Modes that have been selected for the task.
I have set a task/assessment but my students cannot see it

Has the task/assessment started yet? 
If a task or assessment has been created to start at a future time or date, it will not appear in the Student Zone until the set starting time. Once the task or assessment has started your students will be able to see it in the Tasks & Assessments section of their Student Zone.
