I'm working on a website for encouraging habit change that includes a table consisting of the user's current streak and two of that same user's better streaks and two of his or her worse streaks, along with performance rankings, like so:

| 4 | Even Longer Streak  |
| 5 | Longer Streak       |
| 6 | CURRENT STREAK      |
| 7 | Shorter Streak      |
| 8 | Even Shorter Streak |

What would a good title for this table be? It should be short (preferably less than five words) and indicate the purpose of the table: to allow the user to view his current performance in the perspective of his past performance.

Ideas I've discarded:

  • Anything with "rank" or "ranking": Implies rank within a group of people.
  • "Performance": Doesn't sufficiently indicate the table's purpose.

(For anyone who is curious: A longer discussion of the purpose of this table can be found over on UX.SE.)

EDIT: Here's how it looks now:

Current Design

The fact that the numbering starts at 2 indicates there is one more longer streak that isn't shown.

    Perhaps "Performance Index?" Sounds like something you'd see on an investment dashboard, not a self-improvement site. Or maybe it does fit... Jun 3, 2015 at 20:32

    "Trend" may capture what you want?

  • I think Bookeater's and Nathan Arthur's combined: self-improvement trend or self-improvement performance index

    The idea is really to tap into some of the psychology behind "ghost cars" in racing games. Perhaps "Personal Bests" would be a good title. Jun 3, 2015 at 20:43
  • How about Progress, Progression, Achievement, Attainment?

1.1 The quality of achieving a level of performance which does not vary greatly in quality over time:

The purpose of tracking streaks is to encourage consistency of performance.
