I was fortunate to have ProgressIQ to manage my performance from the first day of medical school. By offering a streamlined, centralized portal for all of our exams, ProgressIQ allowed me to track improvements over time, pinpoint areas for improvement, and minimize anxiety along the way. By using the ProgressIQ interface, I noticed that my recent performance in a Musculoskeletal/Dermatology course could use improvement, so I devoted extra hours to the course to earn a great score on my final exam.
Progress IQ has been an integral part of my medical school journey. Not only does it consolidate my scores for the current year, but it also includes every exam and assignment score from my first year of medical school. Knowing how my academic performance has varied throughout the past two years and in each organ system will help me tremendously when it comes time to study for our Step 1 Board Exam. I can accurately pinpoint which course blocks I struggled in the most which will help me target the areas for greatest improvement.
I can’t imagine medical school without ProgressIQ. Without a doubt, this platform plays a direct role in helping me become the best physician I can be.
At the end of my second year of medical school news of the pandemic broke out and sent shockwaves through the world. With so much fear, change and unknown, organization became of the utmost importance. I am grateful to be able to continue my medical education through a time of massive change and have been hugely assisted by ProgressIQ.
ProgressIQ has made a great impact on my mental health and academic success. Before medical school, I used Excel spreadsheets to track my performance across quizzes, exams and assignments from different classes.
Graduating on time is a high priority for me, my family, and my academic advisor. Thankfully, there is ProgressIQ to help me complete this goal!
As a first year medical student, ProgressIQ has been essential for both my academic success and my mental health. We have so many quizzes for different classes each day that it can be quite challenging and overwhelming to keep track of our own academic performances. By going on ProgressIQ at the end of the week, I can see a quick Snapshot of my grades, and this has not only saved me time, but it has also reduced my anxiety and stress about how a quiz or an exam is affecting my overall grades. By seeing the bigger picture of my academic progress, I can track my own strengths and weaknesses, and then reassess my study time for a particular class. I thought I was doing well in Pharmacology because of my exam scores, but it turns out that the quizzes weigh a lot more in this particular course, and as a result, my lowest grade was Pharmacology. Because of ProgressIQ, I was able to catch this early and dedicate more time and effort for this course. I’ve made changes on how to study for the Pharmacology quizzes and my percentage in the class has been improving. I never realized how much of an impact ProgressIQ was going to be for me, and I personally appreciate how it monitors my progress every step of the way.
In this time of technological advances, ProgressIQ is ideal,
So here is a little poem that expresses how I feel:
I log in to ProgressIQ and what do I see?
My advisor’s encouraging smile looking back at me.
No need for Post-its to keep little memos;
ID number? Old MCAT score? ProgressIQ knows.
It keeps track of my grades as I progress through the semesters.
If my grades look concerning I can go talk to my professors.
I’d like to know my Z-score and the average for the last exam,
I turn to ProgressIQ for the data; It’s all there from when grad school began.
Whether I’m in the lunch line or studying at home,
All I need is my laptop or even just my phone.
No need for a calculator, a notebook, or Excel,
I trust ProgressIQ to show me if I’m doing well;
And if my grades are below what I want them to be,
ProgressIQ encourages me to work harder towards my degree,
For as soon as I log in to my ProgressIQ profile,
My graduation year appears and reminds me to breathe and smile:
The end goal is clear. The date has been set.
One exam at a time; with ProgressIQ there’s no sweat.
Thank you ProgressIQ for saving me so much time,
Instead of calculating my grades, with academics I’m keeping in line. week, I can see a quick Snapshot of my grades, and this has not only saved me time, but it has also reduced my anxiety and stress about how a quiz or an exam is affecting my overall grades. By seeing the bigger picture of my academic progress, I can track my own strengths and weaknesses, and then reassess my study time for a particular class. I thought I was doing well in Pharmacology because of my exam scores, but it turns out that the quizzes weigh a lot more in this particular course, and as a result, my lowest grade was Pharmacology. Because of ProgressIQ, I was able to catch this early and dedicate more time and effort for this course. I’ve made changes on how to study for the Pharmacology quizzes and my percentage in the class has been improving. I never realized how much of an impact ProgressIQ was going to be for me, and I personally appreciate how it monitors my progress every step of the way.
It takes a village. I would not be able to get through the rigors of medical school without the support of family, friends, and academic technology platforms such as ProgressIQ. The ability to quickly pull up my Student Snapshot whether I’m on my laptop at school, or on my cell phone on route to the hospital is invaluable. The snapshot page is incredibly efficient. The streamlined interface provides only the most relevant information I need regarding my grades and overall academic standing. If I want to know more, I can click on my grade for all the information I could ever want all the way down to the standard deviation of my grade compared to the class. For data driven individuals like me, this information is crucial to ensuring I become the best physician possible.
ProgressIQ was implemented in my institution during my 2nd year of medical school and it was an addition that immensely impacted both students and staff. Of its many attributes, ProgressIQ’s largest contribution was streamlining the academic advising process for students by providing an organized location to analyze and pinpoint areas of achievement as well as areas for improvement.
Ever since I started my journey as a pharmacy student at Western University of Health Sciences, Progress IQ has been a helpful daily tool for me to keep track of my academia. One aspect I really enjoy is that Progress IQ breaks down each assignment and exam in comparison to the class average, helping me see where I stand among my colleagues and encouraging me to work harder. In addition, ProgressIQ has other innovative features, such as the comment section for my Objective Structured Clinical examination (OSCE); I personally benefited from this because I was having a hard time finding out what I needed to improve for my communication skills. After reading the thorough comments entered by the facilitators, I was able to pinpoint exactly where I needed improvement, and my next OSCE assessment grade increased drastically. Besides, I also find the personal rank section helpful, as it serves as a big motivation for me to constantly be better. Recently, the program also has a new feature which sends notifications when there is a low grade updated, and it suggests the students talk to the facilitators as soon as possible. I find it helpful especially when the program is highly impacted, hence can lead to students being lost easily. It helps students connect to their academic advisors in the most efficient way as well. I strongly believe ProgressIQ will continue to grow and be implemented by more institutions, due to its various benefits to student’s academic life.
