EdOptimize Track - A Tool for Progress Tracking in Competitive Exams

Introduction

In the fast-paced and competitive landscape of Indian education, exams like the Indian Institutes of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) play a pivotal role in shaping the academic and professional trajectories of aspiring students. To prepare for these examinations, one needs to not only work hard but also smart. With over 50 topics to track, students should be able to track their weak topics and strong topics. They should also be able to track their growth both subject-wise and topic-wise, along with the level of hardness of the questions.


When you can use data to track your progress, you know what you need to work to meet the goals of the exam. Data helps organize us our time and energy in the right place.

We previously introduced the EdOptimize platform for data analytics in education. The new EdOptimize Track app could prove to be a powerful tool by providing a dynamic platform for students and teachers to navigate through the learning data. Students can use the Track tool to monitor their own progress and adapt their activities. Teachers can use the tool to better help students and direct them where they need to do the work to excel in the competitive exam.
