We have prepared answers to the questions our schools and families are asking us and you can download them as a pdf by clicking this button.
Typically schools, tutors and families provide us with the following information:
For more anonymity, “Rock Names” can be displayed in place of real names on school leaderboards, competition results and multi-player games and teachers could even shorten names to initials or substitute them for codes. To us, real names aren't critical but you'll probably find it easier to manage accounts the more identifiable your users are to you. Pupils can opt (in the settings) to change their rock name to 'Anonymous'. This means that their scores as 'Anonymous' on any leaderboard, competition results or multi-player games to other young people. Teachers will still have access to all pupil details but this provides children with extra privacy should they want it.
Teachers can choose to save additional information on each child but this is entirely optional and is not required to use Times Tables Rock Stars. This information could include a child's date of birth, gender, ethnicity, SEN / Gifted and Talented / FSM / Pupil Premium status, whether or not they're Looked After, or details of any languages spoken at home (so that we can provide you with better impact reporting options).
Times Tables Rock Stars has been designed with the best interests of the child in mind, to support and encourage children to achieve better maths outcomes. Privacy settings are set high by default and all data collection is limited by default. Times Tables Rock Stars does not contain geo-location services, advertisements, in-app purchases or chat/messaging functions. We have a child friendly privacy notice to help children understand what we do with their data (see link to Privacy Notices below).
However they do provide information about new features, school maths competitions and how to get the best out of the programmes.
