What is the Hard Skills Report?

The Hard Skills report breaks down your students’ Hard Skills so you can identify areas where they may need intervention.

This is a premium feature.

What is a Hard Skill?

Hard skills are skills that a student finds difficult. Depending on the type of skill, a skill may be marked as a hard if the student has less than 60% accuracy or takes too long to answer.
When a skill is marked as a Hard Skill, Sumdog will temporarily put it aside and come back to it later.
