Yes, Educake offers several options for analysing your students' activity and progress. This article will show you how to use four tools (read about how one school uses them here):

 
​  

Explore results across groups or curriculum areas

Educake's new Analyse Results page is our most comprehensive analysis tool. It lets you explore your students' results at any level. Compare year groups, compare classes, look up individual students, identify areas for staff or student support - the possibilities are endless with the Analyse Results page.

For any student or group of students you can see:

  • their scores in any topic area

  • which scores are higher or lower than expected for a student or group

  • how many questions answered

  • how much independent revision done

A table with Biology topics across the top and year 11 students down the left side. Part of the screenshot shows a red-amber-green colour coded data of student scores. Part of the screenshot shows a different symbol for each score: an arrow up, and arrow down, or a dot. Part of the screen shot shows a heatmap of questions answered.

There's more information on the Analyse Results page here:

Progress reports for individual students

In Educake you can generate an individual report for any student who has completed more than 50 questions.

You can add comments to student reports, and save them as PDFs as well. Here's what a student report looks like:

There's more information in our Help Centre on individual student reports here.

Tracking progress within a class

You can also use Educake to track an entire class' performance in across topics. Do this from Track Progress in any course on your My Educake page. Here's what you'll see:

You can download these results as a spreadsheet, and you can access individual student reports by clicking on the magnifying glasses next to a student's.

You can find more information from our Help Centre on Track Progress here.

Comparing students' use of Educake

The Student League Tables are a quick way to rank students by number of questions answered, percent correct or number of questions students have set themselves. Here's what the student league table looks like:


You can filter this by year or by date, and you can download the data as a spreadsheet.

Comparing classes' and years' use of Educake

With the Compare Classes and Years tool, you can see the number of questions correct and attempted for each year at your school. You can also expand each year to see how individual classes are performing. Here's what Compare Classes and Years looks like:
