You may have noticed that we have changed how we are ranking schools. Previously we ranked organisations by their total questions answered. After careful consideration, this time we are looking at questions answered per active user. This is to reflect the huge range in the size of organisations, even within categories, in the CENTURY family.

To calculate this we have estimated the student user base in a way to get a fair balance between schools with a wide but less intensive user base 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.

We hope you enjoy the Spring Challenge! 

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

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 on active users this term and the maximum users in a school/college.

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