4 | How do I access student results?
For each Boost course you assign to a cohort, you will be able to see the results of the course in the performance dashboard.

You can find the your assigned courses by clicking on My Cohorts or My Courses
5 | What is the difference between the Student Progress and Skills Coverage results dashboards?
Each cohort generates two dashboards, the Student Progress dashboard and the Skill Coverage dashboard. The Student Progress dashboard allows you to review results at the student level and understand how each learner is progressing and scoring in each assigned course or resource. The Skill Coverage dashboard allows you to track which skills have been covered with your students across courses and resources.

3 | What is the difference between a course and a resource?
Resources are individual videos or questions that may be used independently for study or practice. Think of them as the building blocks for courses. Courses are playlists of theory videos, exercise videos, and assessments designed to support you through learning-specific topic areas within a subject. You may either self-enroll into a course, or be assigned to a course by your school or instructor. Assigned courses may be found on your home page, as well as in My Courses.
