Measuring improvement/progress on TT Rock Stars

Where can I see improvement?

Without the Stats bolt-on

The best options are to compare:

  • Initial Studio Speed with Current Studio Speed

  • Baseline Gig Score with Recent Gig Score

  • First Soundcheck Score with Last Soundcheck Score

Each of their Gig scores are available by clicking anywhere on their row.

With the Stats bolt-on

You can see progress in:

  • Fluency tab - by looking at the Average Recall Time graph

  • Fluency tab - by using the progress slider to view how the heatmap has changed over time

  • Effort tab - by looking at the graphs of average correct answers

Most Improved

You might want to celebrate those who have made the biggest improvement over time. To do so, please go to Stats > Custom Leaderboards and create a leaderboard of your choosing. Good ones are usually...

  • Coins or answers over the last 7 days

  • Studio Speed or accuracy over the last 28 days.

Tip: the key to finding the most improved* is the way you order the leaderboard.

Click on the final column heading to order it by that column.

If it's a coins leaderboard it will put those who have earned the most over your selected time period at the top. If it's based on Studio Speed then the pupils who have dropped their recall time the most will be at the top.

*What do we mean by 'improvement'?

An improvement in accuracy or speed makes sense but 'improvement' may not always be the right word when joined with a TTRS metric like coins earned or correct answers given - you can't really improve in terms of coins earned.

"Most improved coins" really means the most coins earned over the selected time frame (which differs from simply "most coins" as that means the most coins of all time).

Think of "most improved correct answers" as "the largest number of correct answers over the selected period. While "most improved Studio speed" means the biggest drop in recall time in the Studio. That's a positive change even though it's a reduction.

You could then press the printer icon to get an illustrated leaderboard to stick on the wall.


Press the certificate icon to get certificates for the top 3 based on absolute highest (e.g. fastest, most accurate) or most improved over the time period (e.g. biggest drop in recall time over the last 28 days or biggest increase in accuracy over the last 28 days).

Using Paper Worksheets

The TTRS paper version is a great way to boost recall and understanding of the tables particularly if devices are not readily available in school. The packs are really simple and allow you to track progress very successfully:

A Baseline

Allow a maximum of 5 minutes.

Use this to get a measure of where they're at now. Enter the scores out of 60 into the website so that you can later compare them to the scores for the Checks.

Practice Sheets

Allow a maximum of 3 minutes.

Do not collect the score

The way the questions have been ordered, weighted and presented have been carefully planned. For most impact, get into a daily routine.

Check 1 and Check 2 Sheets

Allow a maximum of 5 minutes.

Allow you to check on your students' awesome progress πŸ‘
