Doodle's clever algorithm, Proxima™, will create every child a weekly target number of stars to earn each week. This target is designed to keep children on track in their learning.

Doodle will also recommend personalised goals for your child (such as 'complete all end of year 5 objectives'), which you can set for your child in the Parent Dashboard.


How to view your child's target 

Your child can view their weekly star target by logging into any Doodle programme and clicking on the colourful gauge icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.

  • The green zone indicates that a child has earned enough stars to achieve their target for the week
  • The orange zone indicates a child is nearly on track to achieve their target
  • The red zone indicates that a child isn’t on track to achieve their weekly target

If a custom goal hasn't been set (please see below), the target number of stars will be between 35 and 60 per week, depending on your child's age and ability.

If a custom goal has been set, the target number of stars will differ according to what is required to achieve the goal.

You can also see if your child is on track to reach their goal by following these steps:

  1. Log in to the Parent Dashboard 
  2. Hover over Analyse and select Progress
  3. Adjust the time scale and subject accordingly


How to set your child a goal

Setting a goal is a great way to support your child if they need a little more support in their learning, or to provide an extra challenge!

To set a goal:

  1. Log in to the Parent Dashboard
  2. Hover over Analyse and select Progress
  3. Select Add a new goal  
  4. Choose an end date
  5. Choose a goal from the list of those recommended and press Save. We recommend goals which are are challenging but achievable!

You can revisit the Progress page at any time to view your child's progress towards their goal.

Please note: The target number of stars is shared with your child, but goals (such as 'complete all end of year 3 objectives') are not, as they might not always be appropriate.
