What do you measure? What learning analytics do you provide?

Currently, we measure which educational game was played, correct and incorrect answers for each educational game, how many times a game was played, amount of time played, game settings, and reaction times.

For teachers, our learning analytics provide a summary of how well a child is doing with respect to other children, both in the classroom environment, and nationwide. We also provide a summary of learning progress for each child, mapped over time.
