Where can I find how much time a student has spent using Wordshark

Where can I see how much time a pupil has played Wordshark Online?

The 'total' game play time for a student in the last 7 days can be found in the ‘Groups & Users’ > 'Manage Students' section. This will show the combined time for all modes of play, Supershark, Free Play and Set Work (all set work by all teachers).

If you want to see the overall time spent (not just last 7 days) you can get this from the separate reports available for:

  1. Reports for Supershark 
  2. Reports for Set Work

For Supershark (automatic progression course) the Group Report allows you to see time spent playing games for different time periods, choose last 7 days, last 30 days, previous 6 calendar months, previous 12 calendar months:
