Competition Metrics

How results are calculated:

In order to rank our organisations we have carefully considered the fairest method, which is to look at the number of questions answered per active student. This is to reflect the huge range in the size of organisations, even within each of the different categories, in the CENTURY family.

To calculate this we have estimated the student user base in a way to get a fair balance between those with a wide but less intensive use and ones where only a small proportion of students use the platform very extensively. There are many ways to measure usage and you may wish to do it differently for your own competitions, do draw on your account manager for support.


Overall questions answered: This is the rounded total number of questions answered by students in your organisation within each specified week. This includes all answered questions from all nuggets, including incomplete nuggets. This does not include skipped questions.


Average questions answered: This is calculated by dividing the number of overall questions answered by the user base.


User base: This is an organisation's estimated user base, based upon the number of active students who have logged in this term and the maximum potential number of students that could access CENTURY during the competition.


Category: This is the grouping of organisations according to the number of active students and key stage/organisation type.

We hope you enjoy the competition!
