Sorting Students by Level vs XP

Hi Everyone,

I'm just wondering what the algorithm is when you view students by Level vs viewing them by XP. My students want to have a Leaderboard in our classroom but are divided as to how we decide the rankings since there's a difference when we look at our class by Levels versus experience points earned.

It looks to me that when you sort it by level, it sorts by level and then sorts by last name.  So if you are sorting lowest to highest, it puts all the level 1s first, and then sorts those from A-Z.  If you are sorting from highest to lowest, it would put the level 18s first and then sort those from Z-A.  I would think if you want a leader board, it would better to do XP, since the likelihood of two students having the exact same XP is slim.
