For which grades is Digital Passport intended?
Digital Passport is designed for grades 3–5. However, it could be aged up or down depending on your students. We recommend that you play the games to judge their age-appropriateness for your students.
How do I implement Digital Passport in my classroom?
Each of the six Digital Passport modules (game and wraparound lesson) is designed to take about 20 minutes. See the Educator Guide for additional materials and suggestions.
Can my students save their spots in a game?
Digital Passport will save where your students left off in a game if they have completed a round, but it does not save their spots mid-round. Please note that to log back in to complete the game, students will have to use the same device and login credentials.
How are the scores calculated?
Scores are calculated after each round and will display percentages wherever available (i.e., for any game rounds that include right and wrong answers). New percentage scores will overwrite old ones only if they are higher in value.
How can I share my students' data with administrators?
At any time, you can take a screenshot of a student's scores and print their progress. You then can share these screenshots with teaching partners or administrators.
How do my students earn a Digital Passport certificate?
A student must complete all three rounds of gameplay in all six games to earn a Digital Passport certificate. If you want to support and encourage your students throughout, you record your students' progress in your classroom with the Student Progress Chart and print the certificate upon completion of all six games. All printable documents (including certificates) are available in our Educator Guide.
Can students play Digital Passport outside of school?
Yes! Since it's web-based, students can use their usernames to log in to Digital Passport from any computer with internet access. Encouraging students to play at home and share the games with their parents is a great way to introduce parents to the topics that Digital Passport addresses.
