While Users can select any test type, some results are better suited to being displayed on a Leaderboard, such as;
- Countermovement Jump (CMJ) for jump height
- Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull (IMTP)
- Squat Jump for jump height
Results are saved to an individual’s profile and can be viewed in VALD Hub.
Leaderboard statistics, i.e. ranking order, are not saved at this time.
Users will have access to the Categories and Groups assigned to them by their Organisation. Categories typically manage Groups that consist of Profiles.
Categories created according to a sport, team, age or sex are often used to manage different Groups, such as Team A or Team B, containing their assigned Profiles.
Grouping makes it easier to find individuals and filter Profiles into different reports and features such as Leaderboard.
Add or remove Profiles from groups to control Leaderboard participants.
Users can use a single device but will need more than one display to show both testing and Leaderboard simultaneously. E.g. A laptop plugged into a TV with an HDMI cable. The laptop screen will show the testing app, while the TV can display the Leaderboard.
Leaderboard is not yet compatible with all VALD systems, and Users may prefer to use the Reporting functionality of VALD Hub for longitudinal analysis and other high-level analyses. Use reports to analyse long-term statistics, such as an all-time leader through Reports Export. Remember that Leaderboard is a display only with test metrics populating the other parts of VALD Hub.
Leaderboard is perfect for on-the-spot analysis and stimulus, while reports are better suited to longitudinal charting.
