The NumBots’ Stats area provides powerful formative analysis for teachers. By dipping in for just 5 - 10 minutes per week, you'll be able to identify which children are acing it, who is underplaying, and if anyone is struggling to pass a level.

We hope this data can inform your planning and resourcing, by quickly identifying strengths and weaknesses for individuals or groups, to make a real difference.

How to access the Stats:

Log in to and click "Stats" in the main menu (or just click here).

Initially you will be viewing data for every child in the school ("All"). Select the name of your class or year group, from the menu on the left, to filter it to just your pupils. Alternatively, click "Maths", to compare one maths class to another, or "Yeargroups", to compare each year.

The Stats reports are split across three tabs:

  1. Effort Report - See how much pupils are playing.

  2. Story Record - See pupils' progress in Story Mode.

  3. Challenge Results - See pupils' scores on key maths skills.

Effort Report:

You can use the Effort Report to get a sense of how hard each pupil is working (however it won't distinguish whether that was in school or at home).

  • Days Active - The number of days on which they've played a game in NumBots.

  • Minutes Played - The number of minutes they've spent playing in games on NumBots. For example, one game might last 56 seconds and another 45 seconds. That will be a total of 2 minutes (rounded to the nearest minute).

  • Games Completed - The total number of games they've played in Story Mode or Challenge Mode. 

  • Correct Answers - The total number of correct answers they've given.

  • Coins Earned - The total coins they've earned.

Effort Report on NumBots

By default, the Effort Report includes all play data, across Story Mode and Challenge Mode. If you'd prefer to view how much pupils have been playing in just one of the game modes, press the green "Custom" button, then select "Story Only" or "Challenge Only".

You can also use the "Custom" button to change from viewing pupils' "All time" data, to just the "Last 7 days", for example.

Story Record:

Use this data to inform you of each pupil's progress through Story Mode. Identify the level each pupil is currently on, and if any pupils are stuck on their current level.

  • Story Completion - The percentage of Story Mode they've passed. 0% would mean they haven’t started and 100% would mean they've passed every level.

  • Current Level - Their current stage and level. The magnifying glass provides a snapshot of the level.

  • No. of attempts to pass current level - The number of times a pupil has played their current level without passing it. A warning icon will appear if a pupil has attempted their current level 5 or more times, so that you can intervene.

  • No. of levels passed - The total number of levels in Story Mode that the pupil has passed (i.e. scored 2 or 3 stars on).

  • Avg. attempts to pass each level - The average number of times they have to repeat a story level in order to pass it.

  • Stars Earned - The total number of stars they've earned. Remember the maximum is 3 stars per level.

  • Levels passed with 3 stars - Pupils need to score either 2 or 3 stars to pass a level. This statistic shows, out of all the levels they've passed, what percentage they scored 3/3 stars for.

  • Accuracy - The percentage of questions that they've answered correctly.

Story Record on NumBots

By default, the Story Record shows pupil's "All Time" statistics. If you'd prefer to view their data from just the last month, for example, click the green "Custom" button, then select "Last 30 Days". (This will not affect their Story Completion percentage or Current Level, but will change the data in the other columns.)

Challenge Results:

Each Challenge tests the pupils' knowledge of a different key skill. Use this data to see how pupils have performed on each Challenge, in order to identify learners who are thriving or struggling on certain topics.

Use the filters at the top of the screen to adjust the data in the table:

  • Initial / Most Recent Score - The number of correct answers the pupil gave during their first ever attempt, and their most recent attempt, at each Challenge.

  • Change in Score - The difference between their initial score and most recent score (also available as a percentage change).

  • Passed - Green ticks and red crosses immediately show whether or not pupils have passed each key skill.

  • Initial / Most Recent Accuracy - The percentage of questions the pupil answered correctly during their first ever attempt, and their most recent attempt, at each Challenge.

  • Change in Accuracy - The difference in percentage of questions answered correctly in the pupil's first attempt at a Challenge vs their most recent attempt.

Challenge Results on NumBots

Click on the colourful heatmap icon, on the right hand side of the table, to see the following heatmap, breaking down the pupil's average speed per fact (up to 10+10):

Click on the Play icon, above the heatmap, to watch how the pupil's speed on each fact has changed over time.


How long do the Stats take to update?

The Effort Report, Story Record and Challenge Results tables update overnight, so data from games played today will not appear in the Stats area until tomorrow. (This is why you cannot select today's date when you choose a "Custom" timespan.)

This is different to the Activity Goal results, which update in real time. Therefore you might notice discrepancies between the time played in the Activity Record table, and the number of minutes played in the Effort Report.

Can I compare one class to another?

Yes! To compare the average data for each maths class, go to "Stats". Then, instead of selecting the name of your maths class from the menu on the left hand side, click on the word "Maths" (near the top of the menu, immediately below "ALL"). The Effort Report will show the average data for each class (rather than for individual pupils). Click on a column header to reorder the classes, or hover your cursor over the "i" icon to see a tooltip explaining what the data in that column shows. You can also see Story Record and Challenge Results tables containing the class averages, by clicking the relevant tab at the top of the screen.

If you'd prefer to view Pastoral Class averages, select "Pastoral" from the menu on the left. Or, to compare one yeargroup to another, scroll down to the bottom of the menu and click "Yeargroups".
