The Hi Rasmus platform allows you to quickly create and manage mastery workflows for targets. Targets follow a standard life-cycle. You or the trainer decides on which targets to start probing. But from here the platform can automatically move targets forward (or backward) based on your mastery criteria.
To manage your mastery criteria and automatic workflow, go to Settings and then Workflows.
Click Add workflow to start working on your first automatic workflow. Give the workflow a name that is easy to understand when you will use it later. For example, you can call it “80% over 3 sessions” if that represents the mastery criteria you want to make a workflow for.
Probe Criteria #
You will start out defining how targets are probed. Probe trials for new targets is the number of trials you will use to probe a new target. An example could be 3 trials during the first session.
Then you define what percentage correct (accuracy) is needed to master the target immediately.
In this example, we use three trials in one session to assess if a new target is already mastered by the child. If the child responds independently all three times (100%) then the target will be moved directly to Mastered. Otherwise, it will be moved to Acquisition.
Acquisition to Mastered #
Next, you specify the mastery criteria for targets that are in Acquisition.
You can either use mass trials or cold probes as mastery criteria. If you use mass trials then select how many sessions you are measuring mastery across (e.g. 3 sessions) and the percentage of trials should at least be successful on all three sessions to master the target. In this case we expect the child to master 8 out of 10 trials (80%) in three consecutive sessions.
If you use Cold probes the mastery will only depend on the very first trial of a target during a session. I.e. if you select Use cold probes only and select 3 sessions. Then the targets will be mastered when the first trial of three consecutive sessions are successful.
Mastered to Acquisition #
Finally, you can choose to set up how whether targets that are already mastered (in maintainance) should be moved back to acquisition if the child is not consistently responding successfully.
This backwards-moving workflow works opposite. If you use mass trial data then you select how many sessions to measure consistency across and what the minimum response rate should be to maintain the target in the mastered status. E.g. in this example we expect the child to respond independently on at least 8 out of 10 trials across the previous 3 sessions. If the child is responding successfully in less than 8 out of 10 trials for 3 consecutive sessions the target is moved back to Acquisition.
Similarly, if you prefer to use only the cold probe (first trial per session) you can select Use cold probes only. Then select the number of session to continuously monitor performance. If you for example select 3 sessions then the target will be moved back from Mastered to Acquisition when the first trial of three consecutive sessions are ALL unsuccessful.
Auto-open new targets #
If you would like to automate the opening of new targets in Waiting status, you can select the option shown here.
Specify the maximum number of targets within a program that you would like to have in acquisition at a given time.
Lastly, you can choose between Probe and Acquisition for the introductory status of a newly opened target.
