At GoGuardian, we approached our three-part Benchmark Report with this in mind.

In Parts I and II of GoGuardian's 2018 Benchmark Report, we learned what websites students are engaging with most, and how students are using their devices at home compared to at school. In Part III of the Benchmark Report, we examined the aggregate device usage of 5 million students and took take a deep dive into trends in school filtering.
