Tonic Tutor also has some options to view and export data which can be really useful. These pages can be accessed from the Options>Data Options sub-menu located in the main menu.
The first item is Export Lesson Notes which we covered in the Lesson Notes tutorial.
The Game Setting Info page has a couple of different ways to view data associated with lessons and games. The first section, Lesson Category Settings allows you to select between your lessons and any of the presets to compare the settings between the lessons. If you select your own lessons, you can compare the settings for a single game across all of your lessons in a PDF. That's a lot easier than going to each game settings page to try to compare what the settings are!
Here's a partial preview of what the PDF looks like if I view the settings for the RCM - General preset template for Dancing Jelly Beans. You can see which levels are active for multiple lessons. It's very easy to cross-reference and get a sense of the variation. This is a really useful tool that can make your life a lot easier!
The Game Settings section allows you to select a game and output a PDF with information on the game and all of its settings, including the range of options available for each setting. Here's what you would see if you selected Dancing Jelly Beans.
Finally, there's the Export Student Results page where you can output lesson and achievement data. The Current Lesson Results section allows you to select all student lessons, or the lessons for students that reset on a specific day, and output it as a PDF or CSV. Why individual days? If you wanted to post the lesson results and post it up in your studio so students could reference how they had done, this would make it really simple to do that.
The Achievement Results allows you select a date range and a way to sort the results and output the achievements your students have earned as a PDF. That covers data and all of the options you have to view and export it. If you feel like something is missing from the Data Options section that you'd like to see added, take a moment to let us know!
