Stars and Ranks

School

How is a 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 150 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

Qualifying Criteria for schools to be listed on the public leaderboard and win

School must have at least 50 active students* during the competition

Who is considered an Active Student?

A student is considered as an “Active” student when they play at least 1 activity during the competition.

What is Average Accuracy? What is Achievement to Date?

It's the total number of stars achieved by the school compared to the target number of stars for the school. E.g. School target = 600 (achievement target of each student) * 100 (no. of students) * 50% = 30,000

The school’s current total stars = 15,000 so, the Achievement to Date will be 50%

Students

At a national level: There’s no rank for class or students, instead we have percentiles. Percentile calculation logic is the same as the one used for schools.
At a school level: Teachers can view top 50 class on the Public Leaderboard. They can view their class and students' rank at their own school and class level in the teacher dashboard.

I’m a parent, where can I see my child’s rank?

You can only see your child’s percentile and not rank.
If your child is registered through their 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 their stars in your parent dashboard
If you registered your child yourself: Login to your parent account and you will be able to view your child’s percentile and their stars in your parent dashboard

How do I get my stars counted if I play offline?

Simply log in to your account with a device that’s connected to the internet, and your activities and stars will sync and be counted toward the Competition. Be sure to do this before the Competition end date so your scores will be submitted and counted. Any scores submitted after the competition ends will not be counted towards determining the winners.
