when I am tracking students work via dashboard, I click on a student and it shows what lessons they have completed. For instance animals 3/7. Does this information necessarily mean they have never done this lesson?? If my assignment for my 50 minute class is 3 strengthen skills and 2 new lessons then it should show up that they "practiced" 3 lessons and then something like adjective 1/7 adjectives 2/7. Is this correct?
"Animals 3/7" means that the student completed lesson 3 of the Animals skill (not practice). Practices are always shown as "Practice" in the Lesson column (because you don't practice specific lessons within a skill). So yes, you should see three "Practices" and two "Skill x/y" for each class assignment.
