Participant Data Processing and Reporting
Once data has been collected, it must be accurately aggregated and processed to provide timely feedback.
Since ChallengeRunner was designed to handle any type of employee fitness challenge, the participant data processing system is
extremely flexible to handle various challenge types:
Summing all data for each participant and displaying the total. Commonly used in pedometer challenges, activity challenges, etc.
Subtracting the last result from the first result and displaying the result as a percent. Commonly used in weight loss,
measurement reduction, or fitness improvement challenges.
Subtracting the last result from the first result and displaying the result as a total. Also commonly used in weight loss,
measurement reduction, or fitness improvement individual challenges.
Individuals or Teams
ChallengeRunner was designed to handle individuals and varying group sizes from competitive team and individual challenges to challenges
where individuals do not compete against one another but simply attempt to achieve a set goal.
There are some challenges where you want everyone to know who is ahead and behind them in the standings. However, there are others such
as weight loss where more privacy is needed. An anonymous option lets participants see where they are in the standings but not the names
of other participants.
For a challenge to be effective, timely feedback in the form of a standings leaderboard must be available to participants. When
using a manual system or spreadsheet, just creating the report can be cumbersome much less distributing it. ChallengeRunner
automatically builds a custom, real-time leaderboard every time the Standings link is clicked by a participant. If the number of
participants grows too large, an optional leaderboard shows only the viewing participant with the top 50 challenge leaders.
Milestones and Awards
Many challenges will have awards established for participation levels or goals achieved. ChallengeRunner allows the administrator
to set milestones that display on the leaderboard and highlight participant progress. Optionally, the admin can associate awards
with each milestone that, once reached, can be selected by participants. All award selections are then available in an admin report.
