New Feature: Item-by-Item Breakdowns

breakdown

The keyword is breakdown. Let’s breakdown all of the numerical barriers between you and understanding what your student truly needs. Our new, versatile, and extremely powerful data charts breakdown data—from quiz-by-quiz, to student-by-student, to question-by-question. Let’s dive in to how this works and what it all means for you.

Quiz-by-quiz breakdown and at-a-glance analysis

SS1Starting on our Student page, graphs changed to a clearer idea the average score students earned on any Gradeable quizzes. The color coding gives an at-a-glance view of which students need immediate attention.

SS2The new Assessments page show charts that breakdown quiz-by-quiz data. These charts tell you that, for example, students are struggling more with Word Problems 3, than with the Perimeter Quiz.

SS4On each individual quiz, the chart will be further detailed by breakdown how many students in your classes was proficient (green), near proficient (yellow), or needs more attention (red). In addition to individual standards tagging breakdown, you will have the added tool of an overhead and item-by-item view.


Student-by-student and question-by-question data breakdowns for quick, informed re-teaching

Click on the Results page and scroll down — these three charts will be the secret to student achievement. We listened to your requests and we made the data analysis function a lot more robust. Now, you’ll be able to breakdown data by student, by question, and even by short answer!

SS5

These overview charts will give you quick data on which questions or which students need attention. With a quick glance, a row with mostly green signifies a proficient student, while a row with mostly red shows a struggling student. On the other hand, a column with mostly green shows a proficient question, while a column with mostly red shows a struggling question. With data like this, re-teaching the next day or even the next period is simple and easy.

Toggling between the three chart options brings the Multiple Choice view. This chart shows the frequency students chose different, incorrect or correct answers. In the chart above, question #3’s correct answer is A (grey), but B was a more common incorrect answer. Understanding their misunderstanding guides better teaching!

SS7Toggle between the options again and you’re now on the Short Answers option. After grading your students’ short answers or essay questions, this chart displays full, partial, and zero credit answers. Simply click on the bar and the system will bring up their recorded answers!


Increased user control on uploaded scans

SS3Psst…Secret Power User feature! Our users asked to know how and what scans were being uploaded into our system. We’ve developed the option for users to see how we see each scan that is uploaded. Not sure why one student’s scan isn’t in your grading panel? Check your view all scans!
