View\Performance Ctrl+P

 

This panel has five sub-pages giving a wealth of information about your current and previous performance.

 

Here is a description of the controls that are common to all pages:

 

Tool Bar

Clear log file button. This permanently removes all performance details from the logfile. Only the logfile for the current user is erased.

 

Print current page

The details on the current page are printed out. For some of the pages a print preview screen is shown first.

 

Print log

The contents of the logfile for the current user are sent to the printer. This printout is in semi-graphical format.

 

Export Log

The logfile is sent to a file in a format suitable for importing into a spreadsheet such as Excel(tm). The file is generated in Comma Delimited Format.

 

Chart smoothing group

This feature smoothes some of the displayed charts to make it easier to spot trends and longer term changes. Chart smoothing is not retrospective. It cannot be used to smooth data that has already been recorded. Here are the available settings:

None

Raw data is displayed.

Average 5 points

Each data point is the average of five adjacent raw data points.

Cumulative

Each data point represents an averaged and accumulated quantity from the start of data recording.

 

 

Add sessions to log file group

Code session results are alwys recorded in the temporary Session summary, Performance and Histogram pages. The options here determine if the session statistics are recorded in the more permanent logfile for later recall and viewing.

 

Always add

Session results are always stored in the logfile

Ask before adding

at the end of every code session you will be asked if the results should be permanently recorded.

Add on demand

Session results will only be recorded if you click on the To Logfile button in the Histogram sub-page.

 

 

Session summary page

 

Results for the most recent session are shown in  numerical format

 

Most of the data should be self-explanatory. Here are some notes:

 

In the case of a drill session using word analysis the response times are for characters but time-averaged over each word.

 

If the most recent session was not a drill session then certain data will be missing or replaced by zero.

 

 

Chart scrolling and panning

This applies to all of the charts in the performance Statistics section of NuMorse.

 

To scroll horizontally (pan) you drag on the chart with the right mouse button.

Vertical panning is not needed since all of the charts are automatically scaled in the vertical axis.

To zoom in on data of interest you drag left to right with the left mouse button.

To zoom out you drag right to left with the mouse button.

 

Chart activity.

All of the charts are “live”. They respond to changes in real time and you can keep them open while code drilling and watch how your performance varies.

 

 

Performance page

The results for the most recent session are shown in graphical format.

 

Show all data points

This check box determines how the data is displayed along the horizontal axis. If checked then the axis is scaled to show all data points. If unchecked then only part of the data may be displayed and you will need to pan to areas of interest.

 

The right axis shows your response time throughout the session.

The left axis indicates your success rate during the session with 100 percent representing all correct keypresses.

 

Histogram page

 

Auto pan check box

The histogram display is wider then the available horizontal display area so it is not possible to clearly show all of the histogram characters at the same time. During code play this feature pans the display so that you can always see the most recently modified part of the chart.

 

To custom button (blue)

The results from the displayed histogram are used to set up the custom filter in the Filter Settings control panel. The filter is set up so that the characters that you responded to slowly will be sent most often.

 

 

To custom button (green)

The results from the displayed histogram are used to set up the custom filter in the Filter Settings control panel. The filter is set up so that the characters that you made most mistakes with will be sent most often.

 

 

To log file button

This button sends the currently displayed session results to the logfile. If this button is grayed it means that either there are no results to send or that you have not selected the Add on demand option in the Add sessions to logfile group.

 

The chart data is shown in three colors:

If a histogram column is shown as green and red then this means that some of your keypresses for that character were incorrect. The red area shows the number of incorrect keypresses for the character while the green area shows the total number of characters sent. The blue column indicates average response time for the character.

 

Performance log page

This shows logfile data from the time the logfile was last cleared or a lesser number if you have reached the maximum specified logfile size.

 

The left axis represents success rate and code speed. For example, a code speed shown as 40 actually represents a speed of 20 wpm. For technical reasons it was not possible to provide a separate vertical axis for code speed.

 

The right axis shows average response time for each recorded session in ms.

 

Histogram log page

This page shows logfile data session by session. VCR style controls are used to navigate the logfile records. The number in the center of the VCR controls is the currently selected record number. The chart data is presented in the same way as the session histogram described above and the To custom buttons also work in the same way.

 

The time and date of the selected record is shown and the type of record is also shown:

A play session is one where code plays and you listen but need not respond.

A drill session is where NuMorse Pro waits for your input and compares it with what code was sent.
