Playground Web: Learning Analysis

Modified on Tue, 19 Sep 2023 at 07:36 PM

Learning Analysis allows services to visualise learning data across rooms, children and custom groups.

Groups can be created by teachers to track outcomes for a group of children specifically, such as family or ability groups. Admins are also able to view how teachers are documenting against Learning Outcomes using this feature.

This feature can also be used to track children, groups or outcomes which are lacking evidence. 


Please Note: Learning Analysis data is pulled exclusively from Observations bring published within the Playground system and does not include Documents, Canvas and Tables.


Filter Options

There are 3 main filter options for Learning Analysis:


  • Learning Framework - This lists all current learning frameworks available for your centre, which your educators can use to tag Observations, Documentation, Canvases and Tables 
  • Time period - Ranging from 'Last Week' to 'Last 3 Months' 
  • Age group



Comparing Children and Groups

Once you have selected your filtering options, you will be able to see two column graphs appear with drop down menu options in the top left hand corner. The default option is set to all children at your centre. You can use the drop down menus to change the data sets you are currently seeing to any of the following:


  • Children
  • Educators
  • Groups
  • Rooms

As you move between options, the graphs will change on screen.

Use Cases

  • Compare individual child outcomes against those in the room. This will allow educators to see which outcomes may need more consideration when planning and documenting for individual children and for the whole room.
  • Viewing and comparing set groups of children can be especially helpful when looking at an ability or interest-based child grouping, with this information informing future planning and learning experiences.
  • View teacher's documentation based on outcomes, to better help inform their future planning and implementation. This data can be regularly collected and tracked by leaders to inform professional development and performance reviews.  
  • Filtering by the number of evidence allows educators to see at a glance, which children may need to be prioritised when creating future learning experiences to ensure they have similar amounts of documented evidence to others in the room.
