Sumdog needs every student to have a different account.
We do this for three reasons:
- Sumdog gets to know each child personally, understanding their strong and weak areas and providing them with a custom set of questions based on their ability. If multiple students use the same account, the questions offered may be too easy or too hard for the child playing.
- Every question a student answers on Sumdog is recorded, to give us a detailed understanding of their abilities. We use this data to provide insightful reports for teachers and parents. If multiple students use one account, the reports a teacher views will be inaccurate.
- When each child has their own login, they can play against their classmates - this makes Sumdog even more fun! They can customize their avatar and decorate their on-screen house with items bought in the Sumdog shop.
Tip: Sumdog is not just for the classroom! Students can use the same login details to play Sumdog games at home.
