2.1 Who sees my learning progress?
Roles at eSquirrel
eSquirrel has several roles that you can all use with the same account. In each role, you can do different things.
Author. As a writer, you are creating new new courses. These include chapters, quests and questions.
Teacher. As a teacher, you create new classes based on courses. You either created these courses yourself or you use courses that eSquirrel has created for you with the utmost care.
Student. As a student, you’ll be asked questions about the course you either bought in the app itself (these classes are called „Store Class“), or provided by your teacher (these courses are called „normal class“).
Publishing company. As a publisher, you can see the sales generated by your eSquirrel courses and the number of times your course has been loaded.
Types of classes
The visibility of data sent to other members under the eSquirrel profile and learning progress and quiz results depend on the type of class in which you are. We distinguish three types: Normal, Store and Preview.
Normal. In a normal class, the student is connected to a teacher. The classmates are in the same class.
Preview. A preview class is only available to authors who create an eSquirrel course themselves. In this class, only the authors are students. The authors are also the teachers of the Preview class.
Store. This type of class can be bought in the app. There is no teacher hanging on it. All students who have not joined a teacher for this course are in this class.
Data we share
Points. All the nuts you’ve collected in a class added up.
There are nuts from quests that you have repeated many times – that is in a higher level – more worth. Classmates in your Normal class will see your points with your registration name when you’re in the TOP 33% of your class. Only you will see your own position if you are not in the TOP 33%.
Classmates in your store class will see your points with your first name and the first letter of your last name you provided when registering if you are in the TOP 33% of your class. Only you will see your own position if you are not in the TOP 33%.
Learning progress and learning analytics. Your learning progress, quiz results and analysis (eg what you already know best and which questions you still have a hard time with) are what your teachers see when you are in a normal class. Only the operators of the eSquirrel platform see this in a store class. We do not share this information with third parties.
As you progress, your teachers only see you complete quests on time, but not exactly when.
All this information we have tried to present you clearly in the following table.
