Taxi Dash was designed with fun in mind, but did you know that the game was also intended to help you test your memory?

To do well in the game, you need to learn your way around each of our towns, and to learn each of the 30 destinations in each city. This type of learning, of the spatial layout of a new environment, is something that we hope Taxi Dash can help you develop. This learning report describes how well you have done in the game so far, and has suggestions on how you can work to further challenge yourself in the game.

Your Taxi Dash Summary

This summary is just an example of a personal learning report, and does not actually show your performance in Taxi Dash.

At the time this report was prepared, you had delivered a total of fares, and you have played the game for a total of . Currently, played Taxi Dash and delivered as many fares as you, and we have used this group of players as a comparison group in the graphs shown below, so that you can see how well you have done compared to the typical Taxi Dash player. Overall, your performance (in terms of how many locations you have learned so far) is in your comparison group.

Number of stars earned

The graph below shows the number of stars you received for each of the fares that you delivered in Taxi Dash. The bars in the graph show the number of stars you earned for the fare, and the black line shows your 10-delivery average. When this line is close to 3, it means you were doing very well in the game (and usually earning 3 stars).

Number of stars that you earned for each delivery in Taxi Dash. The bars show each of the fares you delivered, and the black line shows your average (over ten trial). The grey line and shaded area shows you the typical performance of other Taxi Dash players.
The gray line shows the average performance of other Taxi Dash players who also delivered as many fares as you did, and the shaded grey area shows a range that is equal to 1 standard deviation above and below the average. In general, when your average (the black line) is above the shaded area and close to 3, you did very well. When your average is closer to the grey line, you were performing similar to the typical Taxi Dash player.

Number of destinations learned

The number of stars that you earned on each delivery is a great measure of performance in Taxi Dash: to get 3 stars, you need to know exactly how to get from your current location to your destination (we do not include deliveries where you used a teleport, that would throw off our measure!). But, just focusing on the number of stars earned does not tell us everything about your performance. For instance, you might know some locations very well (and always get 3 stars), but as you enter a new town and start to learn new locations, you'll start to earn some 1 and 2 star deliveries.

So, to better capture how much you have learned in Taxi Dash, we also calculate a measure of how many destinations you seem to have learned. At each delivery, we look at each destination you have made a delivery to, and take the most recent 2-5 deliveries to that location. If you have earned 3 stars for at least half of the deliveries to a location, then we consider that you have learned where it is. Then, at each delivery, we count up how many locations you have reached this criterion, and the graph below shows your performance.

Number of locations that you have learned in Taxi Dash. The black line shows your performance (the number of locations that you were typically getting 3 stars at), and the grey line and shaded area shows you the typical performance of other Taxi Dash players.
As in the first graph, the black line shows your performance (the number of locations that you have learned). As you deliver more fares, we hope to see that black line go up. Right now, the maximum number of locations is 90, but most people have not reached perfect performance yet. For comparison, the grey line shows the average performance of Taxi Dash players who delivered as many fares as you did, and the grey area shows 1 standard deviation above and below the average. Where you see your average (black line) above this shaded area, you were doing better than most people, and where your average is close to the average (in the shaded area) you had learned about as many locations as a typical Taxi Dash player.
