Stats can be used to monitor the progression of students to see if they are improving and areas they need to work on. The stats are shown in the form of a simple table that is colour coded. The greener the colour the faster they answered the questions however the redder the colour the slower they answered the questions. With this, you can identify the area students most struggle with and therefore help them learn. If a square is grey it means there is not enough data to create a mean time meaning the student will have to play more games.
The following is a short guide to help you make the most out of the Stats Bolt-on.
Go to My School > Charts and you’ll see three buttons in an orange area at the top.
Click the first button to see three time graphs summarising your school’s data, including the Average Rock Speed.
They give you an immediate idea as to how the school is progressing over time.
Select whether you want to view this stats summary by week, month or year.
Scroll to the bottom of the page, where you will see the heading ‘Make New Report’. This is where you will create a chart which you will be able to refer back to quickly in the future.
Select whether the chart will show students’ Rock Names or their Real Names.
Give the chart a name. How about the name of the class?
Choose a timespan. Will it refer to the last week, month or all time?
What will the chart focus on? The number of coins earnt, correct answers or rock speed
Finally… Create your chart!
Pick whose data you want to see. If they’re highlighted in blue, they will be included on the chart. (Hold Ctrl to select more than one).
Once you have created a leaderboard, you will be able to see a list of all the charts you have made under the heading, ‘Pick a Report’.
Click on the name of your chart (in blue, left hand column) to display the leaderboard.
As well as being able to view the chart, you will also have the options to:
Go to My School > Charts > Download All Data
By selecting Download All Data, you will download the whole school’s data as a CSV file.
