To encourage our students to take an active role in their learning process and to help make learning fun, FEV Tutor introduced “My Journey” to our Online Tutoring portal this fall. Students are rewarded with points for positive behaviors, such as taking ownership of their learning, mastering new concepts, participation, and more. As students accumulate points, they earn Micro-Badges that unlock new levels on their game-board to compete with their classmates and earn privileges to customize their avatar and tutoring experience. In this post, we will examine how FEV's My Journey helps students to become self-advocates.
As a part of FEV Tutor's Rewards program we are excited to announce our next contest! We are awarding partners for their opinions on FEV's recent updates to the Online Tutoring Portal.
As an FEV Tutor user, you may have noticed that we've made some exciting updates to our tutoring platform. We've added a new gamification feature to enhance your students experience learning. Now that we've rolled out the "My Journey" experience, we want to hear what you and your students thing about the changes.
Did you know that FEV Tutor recently updated its platform to have gamification features? The My Journey update encourages students to take an active role in their learning process. On the game board, students will begin on Level 1, where they can design their very own avatar. Over time, students can level up by earning points in each of the four “My Journey” categories: Participate, Drive, Achieve, and Collaborate. Each category supports students to engage in behaviors that will help drive achievement gains and meeting their academic goals.

Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD), a diverse Title I district located in the San Bernardino-Riverside Metropolitan Area of California, historically struggled in Math. With the changing rigor of California Common Core State Standards, students throughout the district were falling further behind. Over three quarters of students district-wide were scoring below proficiency on the California Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assessment. District administrators knew they had to address Math achievement head-on. They would need to think outside of the box to get students additional supports to keep them on track to fulfill California A-G Requirements and place them on a College and Career Ready path.
In November FEV Tutor was pleased to present at the EdTechTeacher Summit with Chris Shearer, Principal of Holcomb Bridge Middle School (HBMS) of Fulton County Schools.

As a part of the presentation, FEV Tutor premiered our latest Success Story video which showcases the impact FEV's tutoring had on HBMS struggling Math students and includes feedback from Holcomb Bridge administrators, teachers, and students. We've included the video in the blog post below!
