Your stats page can be found through the main menu, and includes a number of different elements. Here's a quick intro to how each of them works!

Streak

Your streak is displayed at the top of your stats page, and keeps a track of the number of consecutive days you've been solving problems on Brilliant. Only correct answers count towards your streak, so if you don't get the first question of the day right, make sure to go into either the community or a course, and try a few more.

If you're worried you might miss a day, don't be! If you haven't solved a problem early in the day, we'll send you an email reminder, with a link to the latest daily problem. If you'd like to disable this, you can do so through your notification settings, here.

Courses

The course section simply displays your progress through all our courses. Here, you can see what courses you've already completed, have made some progress on, or haven't started yet. If you'd like, you can click any of the progress bars here to go to that course's home page and jump back into it.

Topic Levels

Answering problems correctly will cause your rating to increase, and answering them incorrectly will cause your rating to decrease. The amount your rating increases or decreases is proportional to the difference between your own rating in a topic and the problem’s rating. 

For example, if you have a 1,200 rating in Algebra and you correctly answer a problem that is rated 1,500, your rating will go up more than if you correctly answer a problem that is rated 900. The inverse is true for answering a question incorrectly, as a problem with a high rating will decrease your overall rating less than one with a low rating.

Problems Tried

This section shows all the problems you've attempted in the last year, broken down by date. The darker the tile, the more problems you completed that day.

You can click any tile to see a full list of the problems you attempted that day, as well as how many points you gained or lost from each one, and how your overall rating changed as a result. If you'd like to retry a problem, just click it to be brought back to that question. Retrying a question, however, will not change your original score on it.
