Rosetta Stone Foundations User Interface Update

Rosetta Stone Foundations User Interface Update

Rosetta Stone Foundations features a new look and feel in several areas after a recent update. These changes more closely align our web-based program with our mobile application and move us closer to removing Flash from the program entirely.

This update brings some changes to the visualization of the program structure. We’ve provided this guide to help learners and administrators better understand this structure and how it appears throughout Rosetta Stone Foundations.

Visual change: Units only
 
On the Foundations home screen, learners can click the "Show Menu" button at the top left to see available Units, which they can select to access the lessons within. The documentation of what Level the Units correspond to has been removed from the learner’s home screen.



This does not mean that the Levels have been removed from the program entirely. The Units still correspond to the Levels in the same way (4 units = 1 Level), their notation has simply been removed from the learners' interface to make it easier for them to understand the progress being made and to simplify their forward movement. Units 1-4 make up Level 1, Units 5-8 make up Level 2, Units 9-12 make up Level 3, etc.

Understanding Levels, Units, and Lessons
 
Within the Rosetta Stone program, the content is broken up into Levels, Units, and Lessons.  Each Level contains 4 Units; these Units provide overarching themes for the Lessons within, such as Greetings and Introductions, Travel, Everyday things, Professions and Hobbies, etc.

Within each Unit, there are four Lessons, and each Lesson has a corresponding Core Lesson, which provides an introduction to the content for that Lesson. This content is then reinforced in the focused activities that follow. These activities dive into a particular facet of the language learning experience such as Pronunciation, Vocabulary, Grammar, Listening, Speaking and Writing.
 
The Unit ends with the milestone activity; this requires learners to utilize all that they have learned in that Unit to participate in a conversational test of their skills.
 
Administrator Reporting 
 
Within the reporting tools for administrators, you will continue to see the legacy definitions of Levels and Units where every Level will have four Units, labeled 1-4. This means that in your reports you would see "Level 2 Unit 2" as opposed to "Unit 6." We are actively working on updating admin reports so the Unit numbers match the learner interface.
