  • Average skills completed

  • Average questions answered
  • Average accuracy
  • Average Proficiency difference between your chosen period of time

Hard skills

See how many pupils in each class are struggling with particular skills.

Hard skills are assigned when pupils find a skill difficult, Sumdog skips it and comes back to it later.

A skill is marked as Hard is a pupil has less than a 50% accuracy in the skill or step within the skill. Some skills which are fluency based will also require a pupil to have an average answer speed of 6 seconds or faster. With the fluency skills if a pupil takes to long to answer they might also be marked as a Hard skill.

Student on level

This report shows you if your classes are behind, on track or ahead of where they should be in the curriculum according to how far you are through the school year.

It will compare where you are in the school year, where they should be at that point, and where the class is working now. If your classes are behind or forward, it will show you by how many months.

This report will be based on the pupils’ diagnostic score and how far they are in their skill plan based on their skill progression while working on the skills set by Sumdog.

If a teacher has set specific skills for their pupils as part of a challenge or another activity those skills will not appear in this report.
