1. A method implemented on a computer system comprising:

  • gathering, with one or more accelerometers, first driving skill data during two or more driving sessions of a first student driver, wherein the first driving skill data includes at least one of first acceleration data, first braking data, or first steering data, and wherein the first driving skill data includes at least one of a first timestamp or a first location stamp;

    generating, with one or more computer processors, two or more driving session reports corresponding to the two or more driving sessions including calculating, for each of the two or more driving sessions, at least one of a first student driver acceleration skill score based on the first acceleration data, a first student driver braking skill score based on the first braking data, or a first student driver steering skill score based on the first steering data;

    causing, with the one or more computer processors, the two or more driving session reports to be displayed to a driving instructor;

    in response to the display of the two or more driving session reports, receiving comments from the driving instructor about at least one of the two or more driving sessions of the first student driver;

    gathering, with the one or more accelerometers, second driving skill data during a secondary driving session of a second student driver, wherein the second driving skill data includes at least one of second acceleration data, second braking data, or second steering data and wherein the second driving skill data includes at least one of a second timestamp or a second location stamp;

    generating a second driving session report including calculating at least one of a second student driver acceleration skill score based on the second acceleration data, a second student driver braking skill score based on the second braking data, or a second student driver steering skill score based on the second steering data;

    storing, on a non-transitory computer-readable medium, at least one of;

    (i) the two or more driving session reports corresponding to the first student driver along with the received comments from the driving instructor, or(ii) the second driving session report.
