Improve your chess with the personal dashboard

How far have you progressed with the chess lessons in Chessity? What are the strengths and weaknesses of your chess? And: how can you improve yourself? Insight into your own progress and statistics guides you in your learning process and improves your chess skills.

Children who learn chess with Chessity at school or as an extra-curricular activity receive this information from their teacher or trainer. Based on the extensive data in the teacher dashboard, the teacher coaches his or her students to do the most suitable learning and training activities.

For users who learn chess and improve their game with an individual Chessity account, we have designed a personal dashboard.  This is a special page that makes you conscious of your personal progress and statistics. It helps you set personal learning goals and motivates you to achieve them. 

The personal dashboard is a new version of the page that was previously called 'Coach Yourself'. Is has now returned as a personal dashboard, with more extensive functionality.
 

The personal dashboard shows:

  • your daily activity
  • how your rating develops
  • what your strengths and weaknesses are in chess
  • the moves that were played in your chess games
  • which lessons you have completed
  • what mistakes you made in the puzzles and the right solutions were
  • how many stars you have earned

The statistics about your strengths and weaknesses in chess are based on your game performance in the Arena (' Games'). Presented in a table, you see data that show whether you play safe moves, suffer from hanging pieces, do or don’t recognize mating opportunities, and so on. You can play back your own games move by move and analyze them.

This gives you an insight into which chess skills you have already mastered and where you can still improve. By practising in a deliberate way or by taking lessons on subjects you are not so good at yet, you will improve your play and win more chess games. 

Curious about your progress? Check out your personal dashboard now:

You can find your personal dashboard under the button 'My dashboard' on your profile page:

Could you please explain what “KPI” stands for and the meaning of the various KPI scores and percentages? For example, in the screenshot above, what is the meaning of “Attack 0.17 122%”? Thanks

KPI stands for Key Performance Indicator. It is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively you are achieving key chess playing objectives, like making safe moves, of checkmating your opponent. Ideally, your KPI's are well balanced. If that's the case, there are no strengths or weaknesses for your level of chess. In the example above, the KPI's are wide apart, with a low 52% score for hanging pieces (100% is the minimally required score for this player's chess level) against very high scores for check (863%) and checkmate (746%). By improving his defending skills and focussing a little less on check during his games, the overall play of this user will benefit.
