Stats on players' performance
Did you know that you can view and download stats on your players' performances* on the letter sounds they've played with in our games? It's a great way to check the progress of one or more of your players.
Want to check one of your players' performance?
1. Log into your account
2. Click 'More' next to the student's name, then click on 'Stats'. A progress report will pop up and give you a percentage rating against the graphemes they have been practising. This'll show things like the current game they're playing, their total play time across devices and their performance*.
Want to see all of your players' performance in 1 place?
A progress report of all your players can be found at the bottom of your my_account page. Click the 'Stats (CSV)’ button.
Login to your 'my account' page on our website and at the bottom of the page you can download the 'Stats CSV' spreadsheet.
The stats show players' performance* for each letter-sound they have attempted. The figures are displayed as scores out of 100 and are calculated using the players' last 31 attempts on each letter-sound.
e.g. if a player has attempted letter-sound "/p/" 20 times and got it right 15 times then the player's score for this letter-sound will be 75 (15/20 x 100).
*Use these stats for guidance only as they don't fully represent a player's ability with each letter-sound combination. A player might have misunderstood how the game works, misheard the audio of a letter-sound, been distracted whilst playing or shared their game with a friend.
I was stunned to see how much they enjoyed this. It blew me away.

Why is the computer version free?
The game has been funded by the Usborne Foundation, a charity set up to support initiatives to develop early literacy.
Our mission is to help as many children learn to read as possible. The computer version is 100% free and we put profits from the app back into the Usborne Foundation, to continue to create new and exciting ways for children to learn.
The charity was founded by Peter Usborne MBE and his children, Nicola and Martin, one of the world’s leading children’s book publishing companies and Children’s Publisher of the Year 2012. He was previously one of the founders of the magazine Private Eye.
What age is it for?
The game is for children in the first stages of learning to read, or for older children who need a bit more practice. Read more details about the three games.
How do children learn from the game?
The game takes children on a magical journey, meeting colourful characters along the way and collecting fantastic rewards. When children are engaged, they’re motivated to learn.
As they progress, they rehearse a range of essential reading skills; matching letters to sounds, blending, segmenting, tricky words and reading full sentences.

Will it work on my device?
The game runs on any normal laptop or desktop computer (including Apple Macs) and the app works on iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle tablets.
