Stars and Ranks
How is School's rank calculated? The ranking is based on the achievements of a school's students out of the target goal.
Every student has a goal of 300 stars to achieve.
We look at the stars achieved for the active students divided by the goal of those students (or 70% of students, whichever is higher).
The accuracy of participants is used in tie-breaking situations.
What is the target goal for my school?
- If active students in your school < 70% of your TOTAL students, then Total Target Stars = 70% of TOTAL students in school * individual student target goal
- If active students in your school >= 70% of your TOTAL students, then Total Target Stars = No. of active students * individual student target goal
Who is considered an Active Student?
Student is considered as an “Active” student when they play at least 1 activity during the competition.
Qualifying Criteria for Schools to be listed on the public leaderboard and win
School must have at least 50 number of active students* during the competition
Class and Students
National level: There’s no rank for class or students, instead we have percentile. Percentile calculation logic is the same as the one used for schools.
School level: Teachers can view their class and students rank at their own school and class level in the teacher dashboard.
Where can I see my child’s rank?
You can only see your child’s percentile and not rank
Students registered through school: Set up your free parent account here https://www.matific.com/au/en-au/parents/sign-up. Once your set-up is complete, you will be able to view your child’s percentile and stars earned in your parent dashboard
Students registered by parents: Login to your parent account and you will be able to view your child’s percentile and stars earned in your parent dashboard
How do I get my stars counted if I play offline?
If you play Matific in an offline mode, please ensure to connect your device to the internet and log in to your account before the Competition ends. This is to make sure that your scores accumulated in the offline mode will be counted towards the Competition. Any scores submitted after the competition ends will not be counted towards determining the winners.
