As your child progresses though DoodleMaths, DoodleEnglish and DoodleSpell, our technology can recommend personalised goals for them (such as 'complete all end of year 5 objectives' or 'move from 6-a-day to 7-a-day'), and estimate a target number of stars they'll need earn per week to move them towards that goal.


Target number of stars 

When your child logs in, they’ll see a gauge with an arrow in the bottom left-hand corner. This shows whether they’re on target. 

If a goal hasn't been set, the target number of stars defaults to between 35 and 60 per week (depending on your child's age and ability).

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

To see if your child is on target to reach their goal:

  1. Log in to the Teacher Dashboard 
  2. Go to Analyse Goals and Targets
  3. Adjust the time scale and subject accordingly


Goal setting 

After a couple of weeks of use and as your child becomes familiar with Doodle, we recommend you set a custom goal:

  1. Log in to the Teacher Dashboard
  2. Go to Analyse Goals and Targets
  3. Select Edit goal 
  4. Choose an end date
  5. Choose a goal from the list of those recommended. We only recommend goals that are challenging but achievable.

You can use the same screen to see if your child is on target to achieve the goals you have set.

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.
