So far, we have a raw log of every success/failure in GCompris. It is
saved in the home directory of the user running GCompris under:

We still have the plan to provide a user interface on top of it. It
would be very nice to have it in the administration side. A
complementary approach is to display a specific icon beside each
activity to get a real time feedback on the level of accomplishment.

Sadly, for now, nobody does work on it. This is not that hard, we have
all the data there waiting for someone to code it ;)

You can see some screenshots of the administration side here:
