Reporting Data export: Data from recordings

The Reporting Data tab shows several export options. This article covers the CSV exports related to participant recordings.

1. Select the highest organization or group of interest in the context menu.

If you select an organization (bold header in the hierarchy), the export will pull records for all children in that organization and in any nested suborganizations within it. 

To access data for an inactive/completed group or child, select the organization the group or child was in. You will be able to filter to see just the desired group or participant in later steps.

2. From the main menu, expand the Data section, select Data Exports.

3. Choose the Reporting Data tab.

Your options may be different from those shown in this image based on your LENA Program type.

4. Filter by date range and/or participant (optional).

Leave the date filters blank to export for all dates* for the selected context and/or participant.

*If you are exporting at the 5-minute resolution, the export will pull only the 50 most recent files within your context/date/participant parameters.

5. Click the button for the resolution you want.

Recordings option

  • One row of data for each recording

Hourly option

  • All data are reported in terms of clock-aligned hours, with one row of data for each full or partial hour within a recording

5 Minute option

  • All data are reported in terms of clock-aligned 5-minute blocks, with one row of data for each full or partial 5-minute block within a recording
  • This export is capped at 50 recordings due to the large amount of data

List of exported fields and descriptions

The language environment analysis data fields included in the export vary with program type. When your program type does not include a particular piece of data the export will include the columns, but they will be blank.

Recordings export columns

The program columns on the right indicate which language environment analysis data fields are included for exports from that program. The rest of the columns are included for all program types.

ParticipantID LENA Online database ID number for participant



ExternalReferenceID Participant External Reference ID



Recording_DOB Participant date of birth in participant record at time of recording transfer



Recording_Gender Gender model in in algorithm set used in processing the data.
Corresponds to the gender information on the participant record at time of recording transfer.
Note: Recordings for participants with Gender = "Prefer to specify" at the time of transfer are processed with the female model, for the simple reason that the computer code for processing requires a binary selection. It has no impact on the processing results or reports, nor is it any sort of statement on gender. Gender information was built into the processing algorithms early on to allow for the possibility that it might impact child speaker and child vocalization identification. Later evaluation indicated that gender model used had no impact on the processing results, but the binary model selection was already baked into the processing code. (Note that LENA does not use separate gender-based percentile rankings either.) In order to allow LENA users more flexibility while still being able to process their data, we essentially flipped a coin to default to the female model when the child’s gender is otherwise specified.    




Recording ID LENA Online database ID number for recording



HiddenRec T or F: True hides display of a recording from the participant report as well as group reports and roll-up data



ExcludeFromAnalysis T or F: Used as indicator to include in or exclude participant data from analyses. Does not exclude from reports or roll-up data.



FilteredRec T or F: True if a recording meets program-level criteria for invalid recording



ErrorCodes Lists codes for any errors associated with file
E1. Not enough child speech
E2. Recording duration <10 hours
E3. Not enough child and adult speech
E4. Too noisy. Too much overlapping noise impacting the recording
E5. Does not exist as an error code
E6. Grow: Recording too short
E7. Grow: Can't calculate start/end times




RecorderSerialNumber Serial number of recorder used to capture recording



ITS_File_Name Name of Interpretive Time Segment (.its) file. Reflects transfer date, transfer time, and recorder serial number: YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS_000000.its

Note: Device contents that LENA Hub has split into separate recordings due to a long pause are appended with _# indicating the order of the recordings, e.g., YYMMDD_HHMMSS_000000_1.its, YYMMDD_HHMMSS_000000_2.its, etc.




DatabaseInsertDateTime Local date and time recording data was committed to LENA Online database; aligned to time zone of participant’s organization



RecorderTransferDateTime Local date and time data was transferred from recorder for processing; aligned to time zone of participant’s organization



Timezone Time zone for organization of which participant is a member



Offset_Secs Time zone offset, in seconds, comparing organization time zone to GMT



Pause_Count Number of times the recorder was turned on within this recording, after recording was initiated. For example, a value of 1 indicates Record-Pause-Record. If zero, the recording is solid, without pauses.
