Tips for Understanding Student Reports


Cards Per Play (aka batch size)

By default, when students play a deck, they get a "batch" of cards. This batch size is usually 20 cards, but can be changed by the author of the deck. It can also be changed by the teacher using the "Custom Play Settings" for the deck.


Students usually need to play more than 1 batches of a deck to play all cards. In the Library view, you can set Custom Play options for each deck. 

  • If you uncheck "Allow multiple plays?", the student will be served every card in the deck on the next play. 
  • If you want to have students play only a subset batch of cards per play, make sure "Allow multiple plays" is selected and click on "Number of cards per play" to change the maximum quantity.
  • The circle in the reports will remain red until the student has played the deck enough times to play every card in the deck.
  • In many cases, students will need to play the deck, two or more times to play every card. Our algorithm is designed to serve new cards the student has never seen first. After all cards have been served once, it begins to shuffle in previously played cards.


Understand "Best", "Average", and "Last"

First some vocabulary:

  1. A batch is subset of cards delivered. The default batch is 20. 
  2. A set is delivery of all the cards in a deck. 


Last, Best, and Average are all based on sets, not a single batch, and only include the 3 most recent sets


Gems are for calculating how many of the total cards have been answered correctly at least once. We display a fraction for this result.


After playing one batch or one set of cards, Last, Best and Average will all be identical.


When a student plays additional batches, new cards from the set are delivered. If there are not enough new cards remaining in the set to form a full batch, some older cards are delivered again.


Once a full set has been answered, the calculations for Last and Best are based on the most recent deck sets. A "full set" may be composed of multiple "batches" of student play. And often may include "partial batches". Average is computed averaging the 3 most recent CARD plays... regardless of which batch they were served in.

  1. Last is calculated from the most recent play of each card. (regardless of which batch it came from) 
  2. Average is the computed from every recent card play. (up to the 3 most recent answers) If any card was answered incorrectly, the Average cannot 100%. The "percent accuracy" on the graph also matches the Average.
  3. Best compares the last three full play sets and returns the best of the last three sets. Note, because only the last 3 responses to a card are included these computations, the Best score can actually go down if earlier responses get replaced with newer student responses.


We understand those of you using RTI would like a different calculation. We will develop new reporting algorithms with your considerations in mind.


Printing Reports for Single Students

To Print Reports for a single student go to Classes, open the Classroom and select the dropdown arrow to open the report for just that student.



Exporting Reports for a Gradebook

To create a table you can copy and paste into a spreadsheet, go to the Reports tab. 

  1. Select the Classroom you want a report for.
  2. Select all the decks that need to be in the report (you can see get reports for decks that are not currently assigned in Reports). 
  3. Click the Export button.
  4. Copy (follow screen instructions).
  5. Paste into any spreadsheet.
