Hello and welcome to the tutorial of how to navigate
and use GET Waggle as a teacher for your
classroom. GET Waggle is an adaptive learning
software used by students to increase learning and

truly master skills. Each skill is based off of Common

Core Standards. GET Waggle is accessible from any
desktop or laptop with internet access. GET Waggle
can be used for grades as low as 2nd.

Opening view - desktop

First, we need to get on the internet. GET Waggle is

supported by all browsers, but I would recommend
Google Chrome.

Internet browser

Once you have the internet browser open, search for Select the link that says
Waggle/Triumph Learning. I would recommend
bookmarking this link for easier access later.

Waggle Log in Page

When you are on the Waggle login page, In the

username box, enter the username your district has
provided to you. In the password box, enter the
password your district has provided for you. Click log

Teacher view homepage

Now that you have logged in, you should see the
teacher view homepage. Here you are able to do
everything a teacher needs to do! You can assign
goals to your students and check your student's
progress here.

Teacher view homepage

Before we assign goals to our students, lets go over

what all these different buttons mean to further your
understanding of the website and how you can use
its features to your advantage.

Upper task bar

First, lets take a look at the buttons across the upper

task bar. Starting from left to right you will first see
your classes that you have on waggle. You can click
the class name to switch between subjects. Since I
teach 4th grade, I only have two subjects on Waggle:
Math and ELA.

Upper task bar

Next, moving to the right, you will see a button that

says practice and instruct and assess. The
practice button should be highlighted because that is
where you currently are on the homepage. The
instruct and assess button is where you can see
goals assigned by you, a co-teacher, or administrator.

Upper task bar

Next, you will see a cog. This is where you can

change the settings for your Waggle such as colors,
names, email, and how many times you will allow
your students to play games in one week.


Next, you will see a speech bubble. This is where you

can send messages to a student, group of students,
or the entire class.
Upper task bar


Next, you will see a yield symbol. This is where

important notifications will go when you receive them.
Upper task bar


Upper task bar


Next, you will see your name. This is where you can
toggle between teacher view and student view.
Student view is super helpful when you need to get an
idea of what your students see when they log in.

Next, you will see a question mark symbol. This is

where you can go for help if needed.
Upper task bar


Last, you will see the sign out button for when you
are ready to do so.
Upper task bar


Middle Section

Now that you have learned the upper section controls,

lets look at the middle section of Waggle. Here youll
see an option to toggle between grades and a task list
to choose what progress you would like to see about
your students.


Middle section

These little boxes are the goals that you can assign to
your students for them to work on. Each goal is based
on common core standards, and certain goals require
prerequisites before completing. You can see arrows
pointing to certain goals as recommendations as to
what to assign first. Lets learn how to assign a goal
so your students can get started!



For this tutorial, lets assume you are a 4th grade

teacher that would like to assign measurement
problem practice to your students. To assign a goal,
first click the plus sign on a goal.


Updating Syllabus:

Once the plus sign has been clicked, a new option will
appear to update your syllabus. It will show currently
assigned goals and it will highlight the new goal you
are trying to add to the syllabus. Click update



Once you have clicked Update Syllabus a new

menu will pop up to allow you to change the start date
of the goal, end date of the goal, and who you are
assigning the goal to. You can assign goals to the
entire class, a group of students, or a single student.
After you have chosen your preferences, click assign
goal. The assigned goal will now show up on your
students dashboard for them to complete.


Assigned Goal:

After you assign a goal, it will show up on the

homepage with a border and an option to remove the
goal. To remove a goal, click the minus button on a


Updating Syllabus:

After the minus sign has been clicked, a new option

will appear to update your syllabus. It will show
currently assigned goals and it will highlight the goal
you are trying remove from the syllabus. Click
remove assignments. Now you are able to assign
and remove goals for your students!



The last thing I would like to show you today is how to

use these goals and data to help with your instruction
in the classroom. First, lets go over what each of
these buttons mean.


Lets take a look at the left hand side. The house

button takes you to where we currently are - the
homepage. The graph bar shows you data on how
your students are doing with goals, assignments, and
common core standards. The check mark button is an
overall tab to see all the assignments assigned or
able to assign. The people button shows your current
class roster. To protect the identity of my students, we
will not be clicking on that today.
Left side buttons:

Click through each button to show


Skills information:

Last, Im just going to show you what all of this

information on the left side means:
First, skills to watch shows you how many students
are not completing goals that are overdue. Next, it lets
you know how many goals are causing high grit, or
what your students are working hard on.
Second, the system notifies you what students to
watch because they are struggling, and what students
are exceeding.
Last, the system notifies you of student recognition.
How many goals have been reached, how many
flocks of flying pigs have been released, and how
many feet traveled in total. Flocks of flying pigs are
released when students answer a certain amount of
questions in a row correctly. Feet is the
measurement tool used to measure how much work
the students are doing. They are awarded feet for not
just getting answers correct, but for also attempting
problems. This measurement system is great for
students who need motivation when working on



In conclusion, I hope this tutorial has helped you, and

has made you more confident to use Waggle as an
educational tool in your classroom! Adaptive learning
is the next great thing in technology, so using it now
will give you great practice for the future!
