Viewing participant scores and answers to individual questions

To view student scores and answers to individual questions in Tests & Quizzes:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant course or project site, click Tests & Quizzes.

  2. On the Assessments page, under "Published Assessments", find the pertinent assessment, and under its title, click Scores. By default, the Total Scores screen will open, displaying a table with the following information for each participant:

    • Name
    • User ID
    • Role
    • Submit Date (the date the participant submitted the assessment)
    • Score
    • Adjustment (a field for you to enter an adjustment that will be added to the Score; click Update to save your changes)
    • Final Score (the participant's final score, calculated by adding the Score and Adjustment values)
    • Comment for Student (a text box in which you can type comments that will appear when participants view their submitted tests; click Update to save your changes)

      Note: In addition to providing feedback in the comment text boxes, you can attach files on the Questions page or a student's individual submission page.

    Note: By default, the information on the Total Scores screen is sorted alphabetically by participant name. To sort the information using another column, click the name of the column. If you created sections using the Section Info tool, you can use the drop-down list near the top of the screen to choose to view information for a particular section only. If you allowed multiple submissions, you can use the drop-down list near the top of the screen to view only the submission with the highest score.

  3. To see the questions on the test, and your participants' answers to each, near the top of the screen, click Questions. Navigate through questions by clicking the question links near the top of the screen.

    Note: This can allow you to quickly compare how all students answered a specific question, but the only way to view written responses is on a per-student basis.

  4. To see the total number of submissions, the total score possible, and statistical information (such as the mean, median, mode, and range of the scores), near the top of the screen, click Statistics.

    Beneath the cumulative information, each question is listed with a histogram showing the number of students who selected a particular response.

  5. To see information about student performance on each item, click Item Analysis. Here you can see the percentage who got the question correct among the whole group, the upper 27% of test takers, and the lower 27%. You will also see an index labeled "Discrimination", which measures how well an item is able to distinguish between students who perform well and those who perform poorly.

  6. To export and download all assessment responses in Excel format, click Export.
