Better visibility on student trading

We have just rolled out a new feature that gives teachers more visibility into how students are purchasing and selling stocks. If your logged into Student Stock Trader as a teacher, head over to the leaderboard screen, here you’ll find a new button called ‘Teacher View’.

 

 

Clicking on this button will load up a dialog that will show the following information:

 

 

  • The currently owned stocks and the number of shares owned.
  • The company overview. If a student sells out of a particular stock, this view will show if they made or lost money on the company.
  • The full transaction list which includes both purchase and sale transactions.

 

This new view gives teachers a better insight into how their students are progressing and gives you the ability to ask them more targeted questions that can help you gauge their understanding.

 

Such as:

How much money did you make buying and selling company X?

Why did you buy and sell X during this particular time period, why so frequent?

 

I hope this helps.
