"Waypoints is accessible for all students. My students engaged with the straightforward manner of entering their solutions. Students found the information reflecting their growth motivating, helping them to target their efforts in their learning. As a teacher, the data from Waypoints allows me to quickly identify gaps in student's learning, gaps in our curriculum coverage across multiple classes, and strength areas that students have mastered and are ready to move on from."

Kylie Armstrong

Psychology, Peer Support Teacher Wantirna College

"Waypoints allows me as a teacher to find specific gaps that students have, and more importantly find gaps that groups of students have, so that I can address them in class, and see students be able to access higher levels of the curriculum due to having fewer gaps. On the other hand, it also allows me to have another piece of information that supports my understanding of the wide range of levels within a class, and thus support being able to plan a differentiated curriculum so students at different levels can reach what I work with them on."

Frequently asked questions

How does it work?

We’ve mapped all standard outcomes into a knowledge-graph, along with all associated pre-requisites, and have created diagnostic questions tailored to each outcome. As students complete these diagnostic questions and move into Waypoints’ growth phase, Waypoints automatically selects the best outcomes to assess at each check-in, based on the information we have gathered for that student. This is all done through the use of an adaptive algorithm - based on Item Response Theory, and powered by our proprietary machine learning engine.

Why should I trust the results?

For over 15 months, we have refined the models for a reasonably accurate diagnostic assessment from a cold start. But with machine learning, the more data we have, the smarter the models get. As such, we’ve been running trials and continue to further tune the algorithms based on the feedback we receive from past, current, and future users.

What curricula are covered?

For now, Waypoints covers the Australian Curriculum and VIC Curriculum across grades 3 to 10A. However, we’re working on expanding our coverage - you can get in contact with us to learn more.

What do my students see with their free account?

Students are able to do as many check-ins as they want on Waypoints to assess their own mathematical understanding. After completing the 10 short check-ins required for the diagnostic phase, students will gain access to a skills report. From here, they can track their understanding of each skill by strand. If the student also has a Mathspace subscription, they can jump into Mathspace straight from their Waypoints skills report to practise any skill that they want to work on.
