How are the stars calculated?

Stars are awarded based on a student's performance in each lesson. They are used to control whether the student can move on to the next lesson, or must retry for a better score. By default, students must earn at least 1 star to move to the next lesson. Teachers can customize the minimum star requirement by going to Classes Your class Settings.

How is the score calculated?

When a student finishes a lesson, their accuracy and WPM are sent to our calculation engine which produces an overall score. The higher your score, the better your standing in the class scoreboard. Our scoring system is optimized to value accuracy over speed. Below are a few tips to help students improve their score:

  • Focus on accuracy before attempting speed. There is a double-penalty in the score's accounting for every error.
  • Although you may be able to use backspace to correct your mistakes, there is a small penalty applied to your score if the error is made in the first place.
  • Once you have a handle on the accuracy, the only way to increase your score is to work on your speed.

The Perfect Score, which is represented by a blue ribbon on the lesson overview, can be achieved by typing at approximately 2.5 times the lesson's WPM goal and near perfect accuracy.

How can I modify the lesson requirements?

Each lesson has a defined minimum speed and accuracy required to pass. Instructors can modify that requirement in a few ways:

  • Adjust difficulty for the course: Teachers can adjust the lesson difficulty on the base course as long as they're listed as course editors. Keep in mind that all classes that use your course will be affected.

  • Adjust difficulty for a class: Arguably the best practice is to adjust difficulty per class; it allows you to manage your class's difficulty level without affecting all other classes that might be using the same course as you. Learn more in the article on how to adjust class difficulty.

  • Adjust difficulty for individual students: The difficulty can be adjusted on individual basis too. Learn more in the article on how to adjust student difficulty.
