    I use Khan Academy to teach my daughter math since I don't have time to, and I use the tool you are talking about to monitor her progress. It is available to anyone who signs up for a Khan Academy account. You have the "student" sign up for an account and then ad you as a "tutor". Once this is done you can see all of their progress, statistics, and the likes. It is awesome!
