You’ll need the password you were given for the student data page to get access to the reports page.

All of the apps that allow connection to the Internet have reports.
- AzTech Games Series – Meet the Maya and The Story Begins
- Fish Lake
- Forgotten Trail
- Making Camp Series – Making Camp Premium, Making Camp Bilingual and Making Camp Lakota
- Spirit Lake
If students are playing off-line and do not have a connection to the Internet, these data are not sent to our servers and thus will not be recorded. Thus, you should instruct students NOT to select the “Play offline option” if they are in an area with an Internet connection.
Student Data Reports Document Student Time on Task and Progress
The reports will show the number of questions students answered, a description of the question and whether or not students’ answer was correct. The description or activity name is similar to the standard assessed.

Reports for other games are similar, except that no teacher registration or login is required. Just enter the student username.
Why There Are Different Types of Reports
While the report formats are generally similar, some games require a teacher to login with an individual name and password, which you set when you register and others can be accessed without another username and password. You might be wondering why that is.
Growing Math is a project to assist teachers who have been thrust into online and hybrid learning. That assistance means working with teachers to find the best fit for their needs. Having a teacher login means that you can create a class list once and then select your students’ usernames from that list when you want to check on a particular student. Without a teacher login, you can type in any individual student username and get an individual report. However, you’ll need to remember each student’s username, which may be difficult if you teach a lot of students.
In an effort to develop the most useful reports, we created both types and are letting teachers know which they’d prefer going forward.
Which way do you prefer?
Sometimes, Growing Math might feel like an eye exam, with being asked frequently,
“Which is better, this or that?”– Our research team
It will pay off, though, because this summer will be spent making the modifications that teachers recommended.
Setting up student usernames and passwords.
- Teachers usually assign usernames/passwords to students. If your students use a special username for other programs used at your school, they can use that as long as the username is not already in use by another player.
- We can make a list of usernames and passwords for you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Tell us how many students you need them for and we’ll send you a spreadsheet with usernames/passwords.
While students can make up their own usernames and passwords the first time they play a game, we don’t usually recommend this because when (not if) they forget neither we nor the teacher will be able to help them out.
